Family trips are a great way to spend quality time with one another! At home, in the business of everyday life and hectic schedules, we end up co-existing. Going off on a trip can help reconnect and strengthen the bonds with each other!

I love family trips, special time to bond away from all the work and school. Time to create special memories, so will I love to go on such trips? It's a definite yes

Yes, and no. At this point in my life, my kids are young (5, 5, and 3), so car traveling isn't always ideal. But, I get super excited about planning family vacations. I like not having to think about cooking and watching my kids marvel at new things. It is something I expect to enjoy the older we all get.

Family trips were hard. My dad was always way too stressed out and made the whole trip just one big angry fest. We saw a lot of cool things, though!

family trips are the most enjoyable adventures in my family. we get to agree or disagree on certain family issues but at the end of the day we all sit together for a meal and have a good, good laughter

Absolutely! There's nothing like going out and exploring with a loved one. For me it's my fiancee and I, and road trips are the best :D

I'm not a huge fan of family trips. We end up arguing all the time! As long the trips are shot and spaced out, I think it might actually work

Family trips help to strengthen the bonds that are there and see things differently away from the routine one is used to in normal life

Yes, I love family trips. Everyone gets to let loose and unwind.
