This morning The Points Guy talked about Dad’s taking vacations alone with their kids, can’t say I’m on the same page as he on this one. I’ve spent years traveling with our 2 now grown children and I can say I had tons of fun with them but it was always wayyyyy more fun when we would met up with Woody! Look, kids go to bed early, it’s nice to tuck them in and then enjoy a glass of wine on the veranda partner.
Woody and I were always awake before both kids so we would quietly make a cup of coffee and sit in the bathroom of whatever hotel we were in and plan our day/life…not the most comfortable nook to chat in but good memories.
I’m not saying don’t do it but rather look at a trip that focuses on the children but still allows ALL of you to share the moments and the memories….then enjoy some quiet time with your partner when the kids are down for the night.
