“kids are very adaptable, it’s usually the adults who make things stressful” a wise taxi driver once told me right before we took our first flight with the twins 🤓🙌🏻 when traveling with young kids it’s easy to fall into the mindset of always considering the things which could possibly go wrong and to worry and be anxious the entire trip, but the truth is that some things will go wrong no matter how much you prepare and learning how to adapt in those situations is one of the beauties of traveling with children. you begin to see that life doesn’t need to be so complicated and sometimes the simplest of days are the most beautiful days. the journey can feel long and exhausting but the confidence you gain and the memories you make are completely worth it.
