Learning about different countries and cultures is an integral part of any child's school life and to be able to visit these countries will ignite their interests even more.

At an age when children can appreciate more of what they are seeing and experiencing and are anxious to learn more, there are limitless possibilities for family vacations.

The ability to entertain themselves for longer as well as more flexibility with food, accommodations and weather conditions, means longer flights and more exotic or off-the-beaten-track destinations are possible.
