However, in the last 10 years my kids have gone on to other things, like going to college, getting married, and they really had no big desire to go to Disney World for the umpteenth time. But with getting married often times (here comes the excuse) babies arrive. Yep, yes sir, yesseree I just became a Grandpa! And therein lies ………the excuse!
I guess I am a bit tongue in cheek about this but I really do believe in generational travel. Traveling with grandparents, parents and (grand)children can add heaps of family memories to the memory bank And that’s what it’s all about, accumulating stories and memories that can be shared around the table at family events over the years.
It doesn’t have to be a trip to Disney World. It can be an intergenerational cruise to the Caribbean, or Alaska. How about an all inclusive beach vacation at Club Med or a trip to Hawaii. there are so many possibilities.
I’ve experienced generational travel as a parent. Now I hope to experience it as a “Grandpa”. I’ve been told by my parents that it’s way better to be the patriarch and matriarch of the family group. Even if the grandparents pick up the tab.
