Nelson library presentation looks at travelling with kids

Family Travel: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly looks at the opportunities and challenges of travel with kids.

Having kids can be an adventure, but it doesn’t need to be the end of your adventures. Travel advisor Healther Hild offers a free presentation on family travel on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at the Nelson Public Library. Family Travel: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly looks at the opportunities and challenges of travel with kids.

Hild moved with her family to Nelson from Calgary two years ago to open Pay it Forward Travel. Her two kids, aged 3½ and nine months, have been travel companions, with trips to India and Europe a great chance for hands-on learning. She shares what she’s learned about encouraging the good times, keeping bad behaviour in check, and being prepared for ugly emergencies in this one-hour presentation.

“If you’re prepared, you can handle anything that may happen,” she says.

The presentation will discuss educational travel beyond all-inclusives, how to help your kids make the transition to new places, cultures, and time zones, and how to be prepared for health and other emergencies — so things stay good, and the bad and the ugly are kept at bay.
