One of the greatest challenges of traveling is the language barrier. It can mean the difference between having your taxi driver drop you off at the right destination, understanding the food you are eating or even possibly offending someone. I find it a sign of respect to be able to at least communicate basic words when entering a new country, but this can be difficult for someone like me who bounces all around the globe. I currently know pleasantries for five different languages other than my own, but at times that’s not enough. While in France, knowing how to say please, thank you and hello doesn’t get me far when trying to give an address to a taxi. I need to be able to communicate more!

Well… that’s my life. We travel constantly with our two kids in tow. While I feel they are well-behaved kids and I love traveling with them, they inevitably complicate some parts of travel.

Guest post written by: Julia from The Quiet Grove

Recently we stayed at the Great Wolf Lodge in Kansas City, Kansas and let me tell you it was an amazing experience for the whole family! My kids were so excited when they were each given their own fluffy wolf ears when we checked in. Of course, they had to put them right on and start howling like little wolf cubs as we made our way to our room and got settled for our stay.

Recently, we decided that it was time for our kids to finally experience the Big Apple!  My husband and I had been many times, but this was their first experience, and I couldn’t wait to see NYC through their eyes. For a child, going from a small town to the big city is a huge change, and I knew it would be fascinating for them. New York City isn’t exactly what I would consider kid friendly, but it still has a lot to offer the young ones. From huge parks to amazingly tall buildings, kids are sure to be captivated by this impressive city.

About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
