Just read the latest post from Leo Babuta on Zen Habits, where he gives tips about traveling with kids. At the moment he and his wife are travelling around Europe for four weeks with all of their six (!) children.

What hits me is that the tips also work for me in life in general, as well as tips for traveling with grown ups.

Democratic planning
Have them take responsibilities
Pack light
Take turns being leaders
Let them take care of their own stuff
Give them a spirit of adventure
Be flexible
Don’t rush
Realize they get frustrated too

Drop expectations
Remind ourselves to be grateful

See, this is good for all of us to remember, a way to approach all different situations, with or without six kids and at home or during travels.

Thanks Leo, you are inspiring and well formulated and I also love the way you approach the challenges you have during travels; eating, exercise and work and look forward to reading how it all went.
