Today on the Dads With Daughters Podcast we have Margot Worthy from Dream Travel Connect. Her community helps parents to create meaningful, educational travel that can help to bring the family closer together as they work on one collective goal, traveling to a fun place together. Not only does she offer great assistance through her website, but she also has a great podcast where you get to feel like she is having a conversation with you 1-1.
Margot shares three steps that all dads should take to make intentional decisions about traveling with teens and tweens. The three steps that she explains in today’s episode included:
Dream, Connect, Travel
- Logistics about the trip
- Learning about the place
- Plan for Smooth Travel
Dream and Explore Together
- Get a map and hang it at home. This is a map of where you are doing to go. Get some poster putty to mark places on the map that you learn about and discover and this might help you make an itinerary.
- Check out books about where you want to go. It could be books about the destination or about an angle related to the destination. Anything that has to do with your destination. Cast a wide net.
- Make time together. Find time to be together to talk about your trip, look at books, mark the map, make a model, cook together, whatever makes sense for your trip. Anchor some time to a regular activity so that this time will happen no matter what.
For all of our community members, Margot created a special page that offers a ton of valuable insight for each and every one of us. Check out this great website:
