I’ve been traveling nonstop with my son since 2009. Not only have we traversed new lands and experienced new cultures together, we’ve also journeyed through a range of developmental stages as my son grows into an adult. My son was just 10 when we left to travel and now we find ourselves weeks shy of his 16th birthday.
All parents of teenagers will agree that the teen years present a unique set of challenges, but can a family still plan a round the world trip? Is it actually possible to combine long term travel and the teenage years?
Yes. But the key is keeping your teen engaged every step along the way.
