Family travel is certainly one of the most common ways to travel, but it may also be one of the least well-understood. Sure, it can mean parents traveling with their toddler, but it’s so much more expansive than that. It’s an adult daughter traveling with her dad, it’s three generations boarding a cruise ship together – really, it’s however you personally define family. To help us improve our own family travel experiences, this week we interview one of the top travel experts on the subject, Heather Greenwood Davis.
