The
Road-Schooling Gypsies travel throughout the year.  And while we’re not
experts, we have picked up some tricks along the way for making family travels
go just a bit more smoothly.  Here are some of our best tips…

Safe & Secure

  • It’s
    easy to get lulled into the comfort of thinking that your hotel is as safe
    as home, but that would be very very wrong.  Check out our 
    Public Service Announcement on
    Family Travel Safety
    .
  • You’ve probably
    been stranded in your car before…whether from a flat tire or a traffic
    jam…but 
    what if disaster struck on a car
    trip
    ?
    Would you be prepared?
  • Road
    Rage No-Nos
     : You haven’t experienced true impatience
    and frustration until you’ve sat in the car, on the parking lot that they
    call the interstate, for four hours.  With two kids bickering in the
    backseat.  With the car parked.  And everyone has to pee.

To Your Health

  • Some people can
    sleep anywhere, but travelling often throws kids off-schedule.  Here
    are some tips for 
    Sleeping Well on the Go.
  • When
    you’re traveling, 
    take three minutes to stretch at
    each pit-stop
    .  It might add some time to
    the drive, but your kids, your body, AND your spirits will love you for
    it!!
  • Healthy eating on the road can
    be very tricky!  It’s so easy to fall into the trap of fast food and
    convenience foods, especially on long travel days, when your only
    stops are at the gas station or to pick up a quick bite.
  • When
    you’re out on the road, 
    getting sick just isn’t an option.
    Who wants to spend their vacation trapped in a hotel room, or worse
    – in the hospital?
  • Taking a few
    days off can be rejuvenation for your body, but it’s important to remember
    to get some exercise.  Here are tips for 
    Hotel P.E.
  • Ran
    out of your favorite spa products?  Or forgot to pack them? 
    Try these quick cheats from
    hotel freebies…
