Kids Swimming with Sea Lions: Galapagos Bucket List! | Family Travel
#1 highlight of our entire Galapagos trip with kids: swimming with sea lions! During our 7 night cruise with Eoventura, we encountered these playful animals while snorkeling multiple times. In addition to sea lions, we swam around with TONS of sea turtles and marine iguanas! (More on these animals in our next reel!) The sea lions were a blast! You could dive down, twist around, do flips under water and they would copy you! They were so curious and would come right up to your face before darting the other way. They would also playfully nip and bat at each other! ➡️ What would be your highlight? Swimming with hammerheads, sea lions, penguins, marina iguanas, or sea turtles? The good news is that when you go to the Galapagos, you don't have to choose. You can do it all!

Kids Free Diving with Hammerhead Sharks!!! Galapagos Family Adventures | Travel with Kids
8 years old and free diving with hammerhead sharks! Even dad totally flinches at the very end when it darts back towards us, did you catch it?! 😂🤣 ☑️ Major bucket list item On our very first day in the Galapagos on a cruise with Ecoventura, our family braved the deep waters, waves, and jellyfish to snorkel and free dive with hammerheads. It was SUCH an epic experience and we have memories to last a lifetime! Our kids were the first of the group to dive in and immediately an 8 foot hammerhead swam right by us! They mainly stay closer to the ocean floor so we saw several more from a distance but those first few seconds were definitely the highlight! We saw some amazing schools of fish and the marine life was beautiful all around!

Exploring Rome with Kids - A Perfect Way to Introduce the City During Family Travel
We had a perfect first day in Rome with Tiffany with Liv Tours during a private golf cart tour!!! After a week of hiking 5-10 miles a day in Cinque Terre, the kids were VERY excited to be carted around and shown the sites. Tiffany taught us so much and was so sweet with our family. The kids loved taking turns sitting up front chatting with her and riding backwards in the very back!! We went to an overlook of the city, and she timed it perfectly to watch the daily cannons go off. In 3 hours, we saw all the main sites of Rome and also a few that were off the beaten path! Instead of reading a textbook or even a plaque in front of a monument, the kids just got to relax and listen to Tiffany explain history in a way that was interesting and easy for them to understand! This was the PERFECT way to start a week-long family trip to Rome! We first got to get an informative overview of the city and see what we wanted to focus on revisiting during the coming week.

What about schooling during a family trip around the world?!?
➡️ Book list freebie! Follow along and message us on Instagram if you'd like a link to our family's book list during our travels! Instagram.com/travelinggraces/ We are thankful that learning can be done from anywhere! Bookwork, reading, and writing can be completed on a train, in an Airbnb, or at a park. Maybe more importantly, learning can be on a guided tour, exchanging foreign currency, communicating with a language barrier, or during a discussion at the dinner table. Our goal for this year has been to do basic schoolwork but still leave as much time as possible for learning through world experiences. After all, it would be a shame to spend 6 hours on bookwork one day while the Colosseum is down the road! ✅ So here are our basic schooling components: - Math Workbooks - Journals - Reading Kindles - Typing through writing emails to friends and family - Language practice through Duolingo and YouTube videos - Learning about the country, sites, science, and history of the country

The Colombian Amazon with Kids?! Monkeys, Sloths, and Swimming in the Amazon River!
The Colombian Amazon is a hidden gem that has so much to offer! Cuddling with wild monkeys and sloths, swimming in the Amazon River, spotting pink river dolphins, and searching for anacondas were just a few of our family's highlights. You can also walk across the border for dinner in Brazil and get a drink across the river in Peru all in an afternoon! Leticia, Colombia, the "gateway to the Colombian Amazon", is accessed by a few flights per day out of Bogota. As there is no way to get here by land, the area still seems relatively untouched. The main square offers a few tour companies, a beautiful park, and views of the Amazon River... that's about it and it's glorious! We would recommend 3-4 days here. We did it in 2.5 and wish we had had one extra day of exploring. ➡️ What would be your family's highlight?!
