Anat, thank you for screening your documentary, and facilitating a question/answer session, this past Chol Hamoed Pesach for Kosher Travelers staying at the Hacienda Forest View Hotel, Ramada Suites Netanya, and Nof Ginosar.
Kosher Travelers were blown away.
As we approach Yom Ha’atzmaut, comment below and tell us about olim that inspire you?
How to (Enjoy) Traveling With Kids
Last summer, you had a brilliant idea.
“Let’s travel to Israel with our entire family for Pesach.”
You could picture the awe on your teenager’s face as she davened for the first time by the Kotel, the Western Wall.
The shining face of your toddler as he experienced his first camel ride in the desert, dressed as Avraham Avinu.
The excitement your ten years old would soak up, as she walked through the Jerusalem Shuk Erev Shabbat.
Book the tickets!
Kol Hakavod (that is what we say here in Israel)!
Congratulations, that was an awesome decision. Traveling abroad creates a lifetime of memories for children as they familiarize themselves with new sights, fresh experiences, exotic foods and of course much-needed quality family time.
Nonetheless travel delays, together with jetlagged, bored, overtired and cranky children can make traveling with children a challenge.
Kosher Travelers are here to help!
Throughout our years as parents traveling with our own children and as professional travel operators, we have discovered the highs and lows of travel.
Insider tips for traveling with kids and enjoying it!
Here is what we learned as Kosher Travelers:
Traveling single or as a couple, is a completely different experience than traveling with small children and or a family.
Your kids will not think the 45-minute walk home from the Kotel, through the streets of Jerusalem is magical. (But we know it is 🙂 )
Keep in mind, that your ultimate goal is to create an enjoyable and stress-free experience for everyone.
2. Book Accommodations
Choose your accommodations wisely.
What are your priorities?
What are amenities at the hotel “must haves” for your family?
You will enjoy the free breakfasts, housekeeping service, and lobby. (no cleaning up and doing dishes for you)
Your kids will love free wifi, space to kick around a ball outside, a pool, a game room and a kids club.
Hotels and their facilities make your family travel trip so much more enjoyable.
3. I’m Bored - planning the perfect itinerary
Now, that you have secured your accommodations, begin planning your trip.
A good place to start your research is on the internet.
Different travel websites can help you structure the basics of your itinerary.
