Planning a trip with grandparents, siblings and all of your crew doesn’t have to be stressful, but it does take good communication and planning.
Set aside a weekend or a few weekends to book flights and accommodations, as well as plan out how you will spend your time.
When in doubt, use a travel agent to plan out the things you just can’t deal with, so you can plan the fun parts of the trip—like where to eat and what attractions to visit.
Above all, remember you are FAMILY and should remain family at the end of the trip.

Aaron Schlein visited 12 countries on four continents before his 18th birthday—all thanks to the generosity of his grandmother. The impact of those trips convinced him that travel is an essential part of life.
Becoming a father inspired Aaron to become an advocate for youth travel and create media content that encourages parents to travel with their kids.
“Traveling adds immeasurable positivity to my life.” Aaron says. “I’m working to ensure that young people have the same inspiration and opportunity to explore that world that I had.”
Aaron is the founder of Dramatic Media LLC—a multi-media company that promotes the power of travel through video, audio, photo, and written content.
Aaron lives in Sacramento, California with his wife and two children (who are growing up too fast!)
