Are you dreading the next family vacation? Is it because of the kids? Worry no more. I have been there and done that. It was always a hassle when it came to travelling with the kids. I never quite knew what to do with them at first. However, after a few trials and error, I realized that it doesn't have to be nightmarish while vacationing with your young ones. Indulging them when planning is a great way to kick-start your vacation. They will feel appreciated and look forward to the vacation.

Here are a few tips I gathered from my recent trip to Sibenik to aid you when travelling with kids.


-Planning. You can never go wrong when planning. Get the date and location right before booking. Confirm the availability of your family. Ensure that you are aware of what is included in the vacation package so as not to have surprises when you reach there.

-Do ample parking.Park according to the weather of your desired location. Your children should be comfortable so as to have the ultimate experience. For the little ones, carry a lot of toys so as to keep them pre-occupied as they tend to get bored easily. It is advisable to check and ensure you have everything you might need.


-Make pits-stop along the way.I hadn't realized that Sibenik was quite a distance when I was planning my recent family vacation. During our journey, we had to make various pits-stop and I must admit it was worth it. Not only was it liberating for my kids, but we got to have fun.

Travelling may be tedious and boring, especially for the young ones. Stretching their legs and engaging in family games keeps them rejuvenated.-Incorporate kids activities in your vacation.Your kids will be thankful for this. Engage in activities that appeal to them. My kids can't stop talking about the Happy Horse farm in Sibenik, where they got to ride ponies. Be it going to a one-of-a-kind aquarium or to a museum, ensure that the kids are having fun


.-Carry a lot of snacks.Once the hunger sets in, then the tantrums begin. Avoid this by ensuring that you have carried enough snacks for the kids to nibble on during the entire trip. I recommend healthy snacks for that matter. This will make them more settled and create little or no fuss during the trip. After being satisfied, they will be having naps in no time.


I must say that my vacation in Sibenik with my family was simply remarkable. We fell in love with the serenity it offered. The beaches and the waterfall were a sight to behold. The old town displayed authenticity and rich cultural heritage. I guess this is why many foreigners are investing by buying real estate in Sibenik for their vacations.

The simplicity is what wooed us there in the first place. Being the business-minded person I am, I couldn't help but notice how their real estate was booming. You will be amazed at what this town has to offer. I know it is all about the kids, but don't forget that the destination is equally important.
