Trips with our son
Hi everyone,

I have been a regular poster on the luxury hotel forum for longer than I can remember. My husband and I adopted a little boy two years ago and have been determined to continue traveling. It was suggested that we start a thread here to share our +child trip reports. My plan is to add new trip reports as we write them. In the meantime, here are a few trips that have happened since we brought our son home. Warning: these are for the most part luxury trips so if that's not your thing, no worries.

As of this writing, our son is four. :cool:

The Philippines


See page 4

Peninsula New York


Costa Rica

St. Regis New York

Feel free to PM with any questions. We love to travel with our little guy!

My son is of 4 and he just loves water, whether it is a holiday, fall or summer season. He has a special love for Amusement Parks. As the new year is arriving, he’ll turn 5 now, and we planned to take him to Louisville, theme parks. We are planning to go at the two theme parks: Atlantis water park, Indiana -, and Renaissance fun park, Louisville- I just cross my fingers that our trip brought us a lifelong memory!

I didn't read your reports, as it would be unseemly for me to be envious of a four year old.

These are great reports! Thanks!

Great idea, thanks for sharing OP - my husband and I are mid-adoption right now (age two) and are big travel bugs so looking forward to learning from you!

Just added the Rosewood Mayakoba in Mexico. :-)

Initially, we were going to drive the 4.5 hours between the two resorts, but we thought our little guy would enjoy the Four Seasons (Prestige Wings) helicopter transfer instead

an excellent tip for any parent... ;)

He absolutely loved the first 10 minutes, but the windy conditions got the better of him and it was a good thing our pilot had an air sickness bag on board. :( The helicopter transfer also turned out to be more trouble than it was worth as we spent far more than four hours trying to find, and get to, a safe departure point. More on that later.

How wonderful!

Take advantage while you still have only one and before he starts school.

Maybe you're homeschooling partly to keep going??

How fun. Didn't read all but nice places you're staying.

Keep up the good work!

Just added The Peninsula Chicago. A birthday party for our little guy!

Our son is 6 now. Just returned from Africa! See the list of reports in the first post.

I’m having a hard time getting these added to the original list. Anyway, here’s Hawaii! Our little travel buddy is 7 now.

All times are GMT -6. The time now is 1:35 am.
