I was reading my colleague’s blog the other day and her latest post gave me a brilliant idea for a short family trip. She was talking about how she and her husband went on a road trip one Saturday to pay a visit to this town a couple of hours outside of their city. For what reason? They have great cuisine!
Now think about your children. Have you ever seen them unexcited about food? I don’t know about you but the children I know are always ready to go out and try new stuff. What more if I tell them they can enjoy a road trip for the day? Now I know what you are thinking – this will only work for kids in their early teens and above. I do agree with that and even so, some teens might not relish the idea of having to travel to get some grub. Yet if your family is the type to hit the road and experience a whole day’s worth of adventure, then you should try this idea out.
Of course, not all of us have been blessed by nearby locations which are well known for their cooking. Yet I am sure that you will be able to find something that will catch your interest somewhere near. I just suddenly remembered that scene from the movie Wild Hogs. The guys stumbled upon this small town which was holding some sort of festival – I don’t remember exactly what. You could try looking for something like that too.
In any case, the whole point is to spend a day with the family looking for adventure.
