Which could be moving away from your hometown – to college, going on a road trip, studying in a foreign country, or just outright moving to a different state/country. The type of people that constantly crave this “travel” are people that I tend to get along with and connect indefinitely with. Which is why this post may be a tiny bit biased! I would classify myself – and others that are interested in traveling as much as possible – as wanderlusters. Our hearts, minds, bodies, and souls crave the unknown. We desire to be surrounded by anything and everything unfamiliar. We have an ache within us to travel. Traveling is not just simply traveling. Even with no clear purpose, traveling this world we live in makes us grow...

This picturesque town offers four mountains to choose from, Buttermilk, Snowmass, Aspen Highlands and Aspen Mountain, providing something for just about everyone.

A family that travels together stays together! But, before you book those tickets, factors like kid-friendly accommodations, weather, dining, and travel options are worth considering to ensure a stress-free trip. Here are some tips for every kind of adventure to maximize fun, and minimize stress on your next family trip:   1. Road Trip If you’re thinking about a road trip, you’ll probably be staying in different places each night. Try packing one suitcase each day for the whole family, instead of using a separate suitcase for each person. By packing everyone’s clothes for one day in a single bag, you will only have to carry one suitcase into the hotel each night and others can be left in the vehicle. You’ll use less, have less clutter, and don’t have to worry about that the kids are going to wear in the morning!   2. Taking a flight If road tripping isn’t for you, or your destination is too far, think about flying! Some airlines allow kids under two to fly for free (lap babies), or provide kid discounts. Check your carrier’s specific policy before booking and always double check to see if they offer anything special for children –...
