    And to recap:

    "Family Travel For Real Life" 2 is live! FT4RL will be held March 7 at the Hyatt House Center City in Charlotte, NC. Registration will begin at 9AM and sessions will run from 9:30-5:00 with a lunch and afternoon snack break included in admission.

    FT4RL is the first seminar for frequent travelers (and those who wish to be) specifically tailored to the needs of families. Created by Dia Adams, who writes the family travel blog The Deal Mommy, FT4RL brings together experts in various aspects of family travel to teach and, more importantly, to learn from each other. The event fills a giant hole in travel advice for families, which tends to swing from “Sleeping at your in-laws house is a great vacation” to “Fly your baby in First Class or stay home”. The speakers at FT4RL are all parents who, while having different modes and methods, share one belief:

    Travel with kids is not only possible, but necessary. By sharing the world with our children, we expand both their minds and our own, creating a lifetime’s worth of wonder that can come no other way.
