October 3 #TMOM Twitter Party – Adventure Family Travel Sponsored by Visit Jordan

As the kids return to their schools and studies, we are reminded that education is one of the most important benefits of our travels. And the best way for anyone to learn about the culture, the language and the history of an area is to totally get lost in it and get adventurous. That’s the goal of adventure family travel – and that’s what we’re talking about at the next #TMOM Twitter party.

Adventure travel is more than a weekend jaunt to the local theme park. When your family seeks out fun and adventure in another land, another culture, you get to really learn about the people of an area and how they live. Your children will develop a deep understanding and appreciation of the similarities and the differences in lifestyles, all while making friends around the globe. They experience the story of each place visited – and perhaps even become a part of it.

Adventure and Immersion in Jordan

Cultural Heritage TravelingMom Christine Tibbetts recently immersed herself in the culture of Jordan – and came back changed for the experience. “Quite one thing to study about the salty Dead Sea, and quite another to behold it in Jordan,” she recalls of her time there.

With the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup being held in Jordan this year, it might be a fun time for your kids to learn all about our Middle East neighbor. A good start? Check out Christine’s series about her adventure and immersion in the country’s culture. She shares how to add “cultural oomph” through your lodging choices and explains why travel by camel is a must when you’re in Jordan. Her stories bring the people and culture of Jordan to life for you – because they came alive for her, through immersive travel.
