The Arreaza Family
“Last summer my family traveled to Spain, and our 5-year-old whined and complained every time he had to walk anywhere. We came up with a trick that made all the difference. Before leaving our Airbnb, we downloaded a Google map to our destination, and then we gave the phone to him. My kid loved watching the little blue dot move, telling us when and where to turn and updating our estimated time of arrival. And the rest of us loved not having to hear him complain about how tired his legs were.”
