Kids & Travel, Keep The Adventure Alive!

I’m a pretty firm believer in leading by example, both in my personal life and professional career.  It’s one thing to talk about doing something, quite another to actually show it.  In my current job, this is all too true, in that I’ve seen so much more success by actually showing someone our product rather than just talking about it.

This carries over to my personal life as well.  In the past 15 months, our son has grown from our tiny little nugget to a little man, developing his own personality that makes him more fun to be around every day.  We like to think this is hugely in part to the fact that we take him everywhere.  In the past 15 months, he’s been to D.C., Los Angeles, Seattle, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, New York City, and finally Tokyo.  He’s been on more flights in his first 15 months of life than I did in my first 10 years.  Not only has he grown into that little man I mentioned earlier, he’s becoming more adventurous every day.

Needless to say, this makes his mom and I incredibly happy.  Until the next adventure.

Alright, so technology today is pretty amazing.  We’ve got computers that fit in our hands, a wealth of knowledge at our fingertips at any given moment, and I swear we’re this close to having flying cars.  One thing that has always stayed on top of technology, and is a HUGE resource for entertainment while you travel, is your local public library.

The Best Flight Search.

Ever wonder what the best flight search is?  Try Bing Travel.  You may be wondering why this mammoth of a site is the best for flight searches.  The simple reason is that they have the Price Predictor.  The Price Predictor is a nifty feature that tells you whether or not you should buy your flight now, or wait a bit.

Now, they are exclusive to airlines that are typically found on Orbitz, Travelocity, and the like.  Why does this matter?  It matters because carriers like Southwest are not on there, but since most all airlines are in cahoots, what’s stopping you from searching here before going to our favorite airline, Southwest?
