Kidzania Makes Play Out Of Work

Parents (practitioners of the helicopter style or otherwise), often fret about what their kids are going to turn out to “be” and how much influence they will have once they’re grown up.

A company like Kidzania dispels those fears by making play out of work. Each of the 23 Kidzania branches around the world offers children a play space filled with career opportunities, where children can costume themselves, handle tools, and otherwise engage in fulfilling – or less fulfilling – occupations.

It's a Long Way From the Cook Islands

Sprint Canoeing might not sound like the most engaging Olympic sport to spectate, but every event has some element that captivates the audience. For example, water polo is possibly the only sport played while the athletes wear bathrobes. Skeptical? During Olympic water polo matches approximately half the team stands on the edge of the pool, eager to be subbed into the game. While waiting, the players wear warm, fuzzy bathrobes to keep from catching the chills.

Becoming a Global Citizen

In the summer of 2014, I had the opportunity to travel to Europe with People to People Student Ambassadors, a study abroad program created by President Eisenhower. With a group of 36 high school students and 4 teachers from Georgia, I travelled to seven countries—Switzerland, Austria, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, and England.

The Day I Opened My Eyes

Travelling lets us explore. It lets us see other parts of the world and how others’ ways of living differ from our own. For me, it was a life-changing experience. I was 15, and straight out of my freshman year of high school. I was still coming into my own, and still a bit intimidated by the world.  This was my second time travelling abroad with The People to People Ambassador Programs; I had been to Australia the summer before eighth grade, but I was much too young to truly appreciate it. This time, I had not only went to another continent, but I went to seven countries instead of one.

Discovering Family of the Past, Present and Future

Crying. Tears that lead to wracking sobs, the only thing you would hear if you watched a woman reunite with a man who she had not seen in twenty-seven years, her brother.

Millennium

As I was running along the River Thames with my classmates to catch our group’s bus I realized that everything was going to be okay. In February of this year my four year old cousin, Amelie, died. My world was turned upside down and I could only see in black and white. The world had turned into this bubble of sadness and it was difficult to see anything outside of it. Long before Amelie had died my mom signed me up to go to Europe with my classmates. She knew that whatever happened in the coming months I would need this trip. I am so thankful to her that she did.

Re-Visiting Our Original Tiny Traveler Award Winners: 1998 to 2015

In 1998 the concept of "family travel" was not as refined as it is today, with hotels mainly targeting the 5-12 age set when it came to services and activities. So, Family Travel Forum set out to discover the best getaways for new parents with infants and toddlers under 3-years of age. After months of research, investigative reporting, site inspections and networking with parents, we came up with 10 great resorts that were certainly above the curve when it came to pleasing babies and parents.
