Travel With Kids Quotes

1. ” There are no seven wonders of the World in the eyes of a child. There are seven million”

Walt Streightiff

Travel with kids quotes. Mom and kid watching the mountains

As adults, unlike children, we have seen many things and experienced various feelings. Perhaps this quote can go to the top of the list because it highlights the feelings I experienced when looking into my son’s eyes when exploring something for the first time, whether it is a small toy, plant, or a real-life airplane. The excitement in his eyes completely changed my mindset about traveling with kids. Now, our goal is to bring out the curiosity and excitement in his eyes through travel and adventures as much as possible.

Exploring does not always mean traveling with your passport. Simple road trips and getaways close to your house are as meaningful as traveling across the border.

Family Trip Quotes

18. “May your adventures bring you closer together, even as they take you far away from home.”

Trenton Lee Stewart

One of my absolute favorite family quotes. If you are a working parent, you know how much time we spend away from our children. Currently, pandemics allow us to be more flexible and be around them while working, but this is not the case for many. We all struggle with daily schedules and responsibilities to ensure we have enough time for family gatherings and playtimes. This is why planning day trips, weekend getaways, and vacations is key to reconnecting outside the home and daily routines.

19. ” Don’t just tell your children about the world. Show them.”

Penny Whitehouse

20. “You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.”

Franklin P. Jones

When we first went on a small road trip within the first year of my son’s life, we could not believe it was so challenging. But guess what? It gets better. One trip after another, we learned to be more patient. We started to go more with a flow than strict itineraries to accommodate little one. No trip is the same, but we lowered the expectations, which made the traveling so much better!

21. ” Traveling in the company of those we love is home in motion”

Leigh Hunt

22. “Travel is not reward for working. It is education for living.”

Anthony Bourdain

23. “Travel sparks our imagination, feeds our curiosity, and reminds us how much we all have in common.”

Deborah Lloyd

24. “Deciding not to travel with your children because they won’t remember the trips you take is like saying don’t read them books because they won’t remember the stories you read.”


25. “Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.”

– Annonymous

Is it worth traveling with kids?

Speaking on behalf of our family, traveling with kids is worth it. For working parents like us who have limited vacation days, we try to use most of the time as a family to create the best experiences.

You may ask, but will they remember any of it, or is it a waste? Maybe they will, perhaps they won’t. But the point is to create shared experiences and learn throughout the travels as a family. There are so many benefits of traveling with children that it is why I am putting this list of quotes together to inspire you and take this opportunity. As Nicola has summarized in her article Benefits of travel for kids, you can expect your children to become more adaptable, patient, diverse, take risks, and so much more.
