Traveling Internationally with Your Kids

We'd like to talk about how to travel internationally (or just long distances) with your children, all hopefully seasoned  with a bit of humor.

If you've visited us before, you can jump right to what's new  or, if you're not sure where to start, start here.

We like traveling with our children, and wish the same for you. That said, if you're changing diapers at home, you'll be changing them at Buckingham Palace too. The non-diapering parts of the trip are what we'll try and help you with here (and we know where to buy paper diapers in London).

Your children will open up new things to you as you travel. Honest, even if they are not well-behaved, no matter what the guy in the seat in front of you is saying (we also talk about the best airline seats for families).

Things are not the same everywhere. Foreign cities are not big theme parks. People think, eat, play and complain in different ways. There are more differences than similarities out there. This is the real stuff, what makes EPCOT Center only an appetizer, not a Happy Meal.

Decide how much of the trip is going to be FOR the kids and how much will be WITH  the kids, though keep in mind that any trip will include a dose of each (and we have tips for the l-o-n-g) flight.
