Adventure Travel with Kids – Educational or Egocentric?

Very interesting article in the U.K. newspaper The Telegraph on the subject of traveling to far-away locales with young children. The article examines both the educational justification of bringing kids along to climb a mountain or safari in Kenya and the selfish reasons parents will often make such travel decisions. A bigger question is whether children who have been to several continents before their teenage years will become jaded, bored, and generally uninterested in exotic travel by the time they are adults with their own families or will the experiences of their youth further enhance their passion for discovery and adventure through travel as an adult? Maybe the sweet spot for traveling with kids is taking family tours with loved ones, and having shared memories and experiences to hold on to when life gets more complicated later in life.
