Taking Your Parents On VacationTaking Your Parents On Vacation

There’s definitely a gift in taking your parents on vacation with you… Traveling allows you to see a new destination and culture and possibly giving you a different perspective on life. Why not share these experiences with people that you love, like your parents? It really is a gift to be able to share travel adventures with your mom and day.

Here are some of the reasons why you should take your parents on a vacation with you.

1. These memories can’t be replicated. We’ve all heard the saying ‘life is short’ and that tends to really resonate with us as we get older. As both we and our parents age, we realize that we won’t be with them forever. Traveling with them will give you memories that you all will cherish, even when one of you is no longer here. If you have children of your own, vacations are great way for the children to enjoy their grandparents.

2. Retirement is a good time to travel. Even though your parents are probably retired, they still need to go on vacations! It’s good to escape the day to day mundaneness of everyday life. Even if you traveled with your parents when you were a child, it was probably a lot different of an experience as they were most likely more worried about you having a good time, making sure you were safe and your needs were met versus them feeling free and just able to enjoy the vacation. You might actually see a side of them that you never have before while you are on vacation. We often find our parents staying up drinking and dancing later than us while on a cruise.

3. It’s a great way to show them that you love them without saying anything. Even if you have a hard time expressing your feelings to your parents, you can show them you love them by traveling with them. This gift is a great way to say, “I love you” or “I appreciate you” without actually saying anything at all. If you’ve had issues in the past trying to get close to your parents, going on a vacation together might be a great way to strengthen your bond with them.

4. It will give you more time to be together. Yes, obviously you will spend time together while traveling, but the weeks leading up to the vacation will allow you to spend extra time together as well. You may be more compelled to check in on your parents, go shopping for travel related items or just go out to dinner so that you can discuss the different things that you want to do on your vacation.

5. They might open up to you more. While on vacation you will be spending a lot of time with your parents. This will allow them to open up to you, talk about dream destinations they’ve always wanted to go to or items that are on their bucket list. In turn, you can share these things will them as well and maybe even make a commitment to do some of those things together.
