A Gelato A Day is a collection of travel tales that highlights the good, the bad and the not-really-that-ugly of the family travel experience. These stories go beyond holidays-gone-wrong to dive thoughtfully into the deeper parental and family connections that can occur when we take ourselves (or are taken out of) our daily routines and comfort zones. More often than not, entering unfamiliar places, spaces and situations encourages us to open up to one another or react in ways that may surprise, delight or frustrate those we hold most dear.
Nothing shakes complacencies like travelling with one's children. No matter how in control you may have been in your previous child-free life, or how hard and fast you white-knuckle grip onto any semblance of control once baby arrives and morphs into toddler, child and beyond, circumstances out of that control will work, often actively, against you.
