7 Reasons to Travel With Your Mother

Spend Quality Time Together

In our busy everyday lives it can be hard to find enough time to enjoy each other’s company without the distractions life throws at us. Whether you yearn for time in the great outdoors or an escape to one of the world’s greatest cities, this can be the best way to catch up while creating new memories. @lizztan and her mother chose to do this in Vienna.

Follow a Common Passion

Tailor the trip to indulge your common passion. If you’ve both been enthralled by Outlander, follow in the footsteps of the stars of the show by setting out on a Highland trail inspired by the series, or if you both loved the movie Moulin Rouge, make a trip to Paris, just like @k_naimoli and her mother.

Explore Somewhere New

Go somewhere that neither of you have ever been before to ensure every experience you have is new to you both. If your must-visit list is so long that you don’t know where to start, join a multi-country trip, like @hhippo and her mother did, taking in eight countries in 14 days.

Show How Much You Care

Share her Greatest Interests

Make the journey more personal by sharing your mother’s greatest interest.

Set out on an Adventure

Learn a New Skill Together

While spending time together, use the experience to pick up a new skill that can be taken home and shared with the rest of the family.
