Family Campaign

Posted in Budget travel

In years gone by family was the hub of the home. Socialising took place within small communities and generations of families lived in close proximity, looking after and learning from one another. Times change though, and it is now a much more common occurrence for families to live apart, having to move for a wealth of reasons and working hard to juggle the everyday tasks; leaving less time available to socialise and be a part of one anotheres lives.

Bridging the distance to loved ones however, is not insurmountable. It can be seen as an adventure day; an activity day or a get together weekend. 
Taking the time out to visit is crucial in building and maintaining bonds with parents and grandparents, aunties, uncles and further family and friends.

Although distance travelling might be viewed as costly, timely and environmentally unfriendly, it does not have to be.
