Traveling with mom for Mother's Day

Unplugged TravelingMom Gina Vercesi (right) with her mom and kids.

A mom’s job is to teach.  From tying our shoes, to getting over a broken heart, to learning how to pack a suitcase, most of us have reaped plenty of life lessons from our mothers.

At Traveling Mom, we love to share the wisdom we’ve gained through our own travel experiences, and as travelers, we get advice from a plethora of sources–the internet, television, and friends to name just a few. Still, there’s a lot to be said for the travel insights that can be learned from mothers.


In honor of Mother’s Day, we’re chatting all about moms and travel.  What is the best travel advice you’ve gotten from your mom? When was the last time you and your mom had a getaway together? Where are the best destinations for a multi-generational trip with mom? What are some of your favorite things about traveling with your own kids?

Join us on May 4th for our Traveling with Mom Twitter Party.  We’d love to hear what you’ve learned about travel from your moms!

And what’s more, we’re giving away four fabulous, TravelingMom approved Ricardo Roxbury 2.0 light-weight carry-on suitcases during the party! To enter, just add your Twitter handle to the Rafflecopter widget below.Ricardo ad
