We’re Off To BacolodMonday, August 22, 2016 Bacolod, Parenting Tip, ReigningStill Mommy, ReigningStill Travels,
Points to Consider In Planning
- We have to look for a kid-friendly destination. No trekking. No mountain climbing. No white water rafting. No boat rides (my bestfriend’s husband says, no boat rides for their 1 year old). This is going to be my god daughter’s first travel too so we have to make sure that the kids’ would love it as much as the adults would enjoy. Hence the decision to go to Bacolod. We all haven’t been there. There are a lot of food trip destinations. And there are a lot of places to visit that won’t require much effort. Push!
- We have to stay in a kid-friendly hotel. If there’s one thing we all agreed to is the fact that we have to be really comfy on the place we’ll stay in Bacolod. Gone are my back packing days. Yung basta may murang accommodation kahit 9 kami sa room, keri lang. We have to be comfy since we have a toddler and a baby with us. They have to be safe. They have to be clean. These mothers aren’t going to compromise. Period.
- The trip must be relaxing but we have to maximize our stay as well. Going to the mall on weekend with my toddler is already a chore. Imagine going on a 3D2N trip on a far away land? While we really want to explore Bacolod, we also want to make sure that our itinerary is relaxing and that we won’t have to hurry things up. We don’t want to run from one spot to another with a toddler and a baby in tow. Na ah.
- It has to be budget-friendly. Well that’s the main issue. And that’s why it’s very challenging. The trip must be budget friendly. Of course my best friend and I have kids already and mortgages to boot. The other pair is newly wed so they just finished a bank-draining event. One of us is single but I’m pretty sure she won’t cough up a couple more moolah for the rest of us. Harhar! #asa So kelangan swak sa budget!
