My tips for organizing your family trip
1/ Find inspiration for your family road trip through images
Before plunging your nose into the texts of travel guides, open your chakras and dream ! Nothing like pictures to get you in the mood and motivate you.For this, I use Pinterest.com a lot . Many of you are familiar with this social network: it is a tool for discovery through images that allows you to take good ideas for all your projects (DIY, decoration, and travel of course).
To use Pinterest to organize your trip, you have to start with: register (free and easy, without untimely sending of emails),follow accounts that inspire you (and in particular the pinterest account of Voyage Family ;)create a table on your next family destination , then go in search of magical images of charming places AND addresses that tempt you… You will know where you want to go, thanks to the proof by the image!Once you’ve signed up to Pinterest, you can also pin and save photos to your “boards” that will catch your eye as you browse blogs or travel sites (to find out how, read the guide below). Nothing is lost anymore, everything is transformed!
If these last lines are Chinese, here is a little guide to getting started on Pinterest .

2/ Find inspiration through travel blogs

He will give you a personal point of view with which you agree or disagree. But at least you will be able to form a real opinion. The travel blogger will also tell you about his itinerary and give you ideas on what you can do in X days.
Of course, there is Voyage Family (autopromo when you hold us) ! Finding other blogs isn’t always easy. They are very numerous and not always well referenced. You can type in Google “blog, voyage, + the destination” . Then do not hesitate to redo thesame request and add the word “child or family” . You may come across the blog of an expatriate mother here and there who will give you her good a
