Travel and Teenagers, a Great Combination
You may not know this, but we are serious fans of vertically gifted actor Liam Neeson. But after his recent statements about travel, we're downright devoted. Case in point: "American parents are too over-protective. If kids traveled a little bit more and saw more of the world, there'd be a lot more tolerance of other cultures, nations, and countries." Neeson claims that his teenage sons will be given backpacks and shown the door as soon as they turn 18.
Now, I know what you're thinking: "Sure, if I had Neeson's money, I wouldn't mind sending the kids on a European jaunt either." But the good news is that these days, you don't have to spend a fortune to expand your teenager's horizons. First, check out these crafty tricks for snagging cheap airfares from AirfareWatchdog.
