Now children cannot adhere to the adult passport, but each must have their own documentation, the DNI or Passport, depending on where we are going to travel. For this reason, these documents will have to be taken out before departure so that the children can travel. It is important to arrange the paperwork in advance, due to delays or problems that may arise.
Luggage for everyone
When packing, you have to take into account the needs of the children. Of course it is good to have a small medicine cabinet at hand, although in the hotels they have, but in case we do excursions and have some mishap. We must also remember sunscreen and appropriate clothing whether we go to the beach or the mountains. If children are afraid of the dark, we can bring a small position light that helps them sleep better and orient themselves at night in case they wake up to go to the bathroom.
In terms of accommodation, we must take into account some issues. In general, the most comfortable for families are usually the apartments, which give them more autonomy and usually have two or more separate bedrooms. In addition, we must know if they have cots available in case we carry babies, in case we have to bring a travel cot with us. Nowadays there are many hotels destined to have children, which have playgrounds, with safe swimming pools for young children, with clubs with activities suitable for their age group and with children's entertainment. We can even see if the restaurant has high chairs, since it is important if the child is small. Many hotels also have a babysitting service with qualified staff so that adults can enjoy moments and experiences just for themselves.
Find activities for everyone
When it comes to traveling, not only children or adults have to enjoy. The trips are experiences very complete in which both can do interesting activities. If one day we visit a nearby water park or amusement park, we can leave another day to visit the surrounding towns or some place of interest. If there is something that is interesting for the little ones, it is that trips are also part of their learning. Not only will they learn about other cultures and customs, but they will also see new places, ways of doing things, and expand their world.
Within the itinerary, we must look for activities that are fun and entertaining, with parks, aquariums or zoos. But you also have to add some culture and learning within trips. Show you the old area, historical ruins and tell you the legends and stories behind it. Children will learn and their curiosity about other cultures and many more things will be aroused. It's another way for them to develop their intelligence and natural curiosity while having a good time.
Transport with children
Whenever we are going to head from one place to another, we must either catch a plane or a train or bus. The fact is that in the case of the plane we must know the details when traveling with children, since almost all of them allow traveling with babies and children under two years of age without having to pay a ticket for them. The conditions must be read carefully before buying the tickets for the family. In many companies they even have special seats for the little ones and allow them to go up with the strollers and baby seats, although they must be checked in before. In general, each company establishes its conditions, so you have to read them well before venturing out with the whole family.
Another good advice regarding transport is that we carry pills for motion sickness or some other method in case the children are not used to it and may become dizzy. A bottle of water and bags for seasickness can be other accessories to take into account to carry in the travel bag in which we will have to have everything necessary to spend the day without mishaps.
