Family Reunions as Roots Travel

It's been a while since I last posted. Time just got away from me.

Recently, I put together a family reunion for a large family. They are going on a Disney Cruise. It's perfect for both the adults and the kids because there is something for everyone to do.

Many of the readers of this blog might not consider a Disney Cruise roots travel, but I do. I tend to define roots travel as anything that strengthens the roots and branches of the family tree. A family reunion is a great way to strengthen those roots. No matter where the family reunion is held, it helps generations connect.That is what roots travel is all about.

According to this article, 34 percent of U.S. adults have traveled to a family reunion in the past three years. Check out the article; it even talks about ancestral travel as a family reunion idea. Ancestral travel is a great travel idea for family reunion travel because as a family you share a common heritage. Traveling to Italy to see your great-grandfather's vineyard, for example, would be an amazing family reunion travel experience.

If you are planning family reunion travel, check out this article for some helpful tips. Whether you are planning to visit an ancestral home or do a cruise, it takes a lot of planning for a great family reunion. Consider a travel agent to help you plan the travel portions of the trip.
