Intergenerational Travel on Globetrotting Mama

My mother and son bonding on our trip to Mexico.


I love hearing stories of people stepping away from the bustle of everyday life and jet-setting to far off lands with their kids AND their parents. Maybe it is baby’s first trip to sun and sand, and Grandma comes along to offer babysitting and support. Or maybe, as I have done, a trip to a new country offers the space and time for grandchild and grandparent to bond. Last year I took my oldest son and my mom with me on a trip to Mexico. Our ages may vary – my mother is in her 60s, I am in my 40s and my son is approaching the teen years – and our interests vary too, but we found ways to explore what it means to be family. You give a little, you take a little and you have fun along the way!
