I am a nurse in the states. My husband and 4 year old daughter love to travel together. For 2013 my brother, his wife and daughter and my parents are planning to join us on a beach vacation over the Christmas holiday.
We will have to reach a good balance since my family is used to staying in our homemade travel van and sleeping in tents and the like, while my brother and his family are more accustomed to resorts where everything is planned for you. I think we will find a good balance, since Grandama and Grandpa were adventuresome travelers in their youth who now enjoy a quiet cruise, they strike a good middle between my brother and my own night and day styles of travel. As a group we are easygoing people, a close and happy family. We laugh a lot.
