Eleanor at the Desert in Al Ain
Names/Ages: Eleanor (2.5)
Vacation Location: Al Ain, United Arab Emirates
Favorite Baby or Child Friendly Activity There: It’s been a great experience for us to learn about another culture with Eleanor including visiting arab forts, desert oases, running around in the desert and visiting a mosque.
Best Tip for Traveling with Kids: Keep them happy with lots of distractions! Like lollipops or a new little toy.
Favorite Way to Make it Feel Like Home: We have always taken her baby and blanket that she sleeps with so no matter where we are she has these items to make her feel safe and give her something familiar.
An Item you MUST Take With You While Traveling: Besides her baby and blanket listed above, a few paperback books (so they are light) are great to keep her occupied.
Throughout July, we’ll be posting “Adventures and Outings”, reader submissions filled with great tips and ideas for traveling with children. Want to join in? Click here for all the info.
