Traveling with Children and Why it is Important

Growing up, one of the biggest resentments I had against my parents was the fact that they took me around the world at a very young age. By the time I turned 7, I had been on two round-the-world trips. Now, before you mark me down as a snob for complaining about excessive travel, hear me out…
