Some of the best memories my sisters and I have with our mom are while travelling. Whether this was a surprise trip to Disney, a road trip throughout eastern Canada or tagging along with her on a business trip to Montreal, mom always made the trip special for us…and our exchange students too!
We love travelling with our mom, however there are a few things we’ve learned throughout the years regarding her travel preferences for a smooth trip. For example, if you are travelling with your mom for an athletic tournament and your team is terrible, make sure there is a place for her to pick up an excellent cup of coffee so she can make it through the game.
We also learned the following while travelling with mom:
1) It takes an extremely long time to cook a roast in the oven of a motorhome
2) Make sure you have a backup photo of everything your mom wants a photo of because hers are guaranteed to be blurry
2) Underpack your suitcase as your mom will overpack hers and then purchase items while travelling that she will then need to store in your suitcase
3) Our mom can arrange an awesome picnic so definitely have a picnic day while travelling and catch up on some traditional family time in a park
We love you mom, never stop travelling and we will continue to tag along. Happy Mothers Day!
