February 20 #TMOM Twitter Party – Heritage Travel

When I think of my travel bucket list, I know there are many destinations I want to visit. But only one truly stirs my heart: Ireland. For me, it’s the homeland, where my family roots originated. I want to experience the place that my ancestors came from, and explore the history and culture of the old sod first hand.

I think we all know that yearning, the draw to the places where our families originated. That’s why we’re devoting our next #TMOM Twitter party, on February 20 at 9 p.m. EST, to Heritage Travel – visiting our ancestral places.

TravelingMoms often head back to the countries of their roots – or go for a first time to find them! Whether it’s Germany  or Africa, Cuba or Panama – wherever your roots begin, it’s time to enrich your life with a visit to the homeland!

And though we’re a nation of immigrants, heritage travel doesn’t have to mean international travel. I always feel a draw to my birthplace, Philadelphia, and I love exploring the city where my mother grew up. But I also love to visit my father’s boyhood home in Shenandoah . As a wise girl once told us, you don’t have to go far to find your heart’s content. There’s truly no place like home – our ancestral home, that is!

Where would you go to discover your heritage? How do you engage kids in that? Share with us at 9 p.pm. EST on February 20  at our #TMOM Twitter party, all about heritage travel.
