Your child's travel firsts

What was your first memorable travel experience with your child? It could be the first time he boarded a plane to see his grandparents, the moment she first touched the ocean on the beach you grew up visiting, or that trip to Europe when your child first realized that not everyone eats dinner at the same time.


Share a photo from the trip and tell us a little bit about why you chose to travel with your child at that particular age. What did you do to make it special, or make sure your child – and those around her – were comfortable?


Feel free to talk about things that went wrong, too. Looking back, is there anything you’d do differently? You can also share your own first significant travel memories as a child.
