Here at Lonely Planet we believe in kick-starting the travel bug young! We know that many of our fans on Twitter haven’t stopped travelling since becoming parents (and we applaud you for it), so we held an #LPChat dedicated to sharing tips for exploring the world with kids in tow. Co-hosted by our kids brand, @lpkids, and our adventurous friends, @familyonabike, we discussed family travel memories, hopes, plans and tips. The result was inspiring, and educational.
