I love international travel. It’s amazing to visit new countries, experience new cultures and soak in the beauty of the world just by visiting some place new. International travel with children is something new to me.
If you are wanting to test run international travel, I recommend visiting Puerto Rico. Being that Puerto Rico is a common wealth of the United States, you do not need a passport, different currency and there really is no language barrier upon arrival. On an island about the size of Connecticut, you have the freedom to soak up island life, explore, set sail or take flight to some place new. In a few short hours on a non-stop flight from the continental US, you will touch down in sunny San Juan and be on your way to paradise, minus all the hassles of international travel.
