Can family travel and relaxation really go hand in hand? I must admit I am having my doubts lately! We have recently returned from a wonderful but exhausting trip around Cambodia and Vietnam.

As each travel story births its own lessons, so each experience merits its own inspiration.

Travel-Drive Race – Breaking the stigma: Great travel experiences in destinations with negative reputations
There are many destinations that have a bad reputation or stigma that they can’t seem to shake. These places get slammed by the travel media, bloggers and tourists who can’t get past the outdated, inaccurate or superficial criticisms. Not every destination is created equally, but I can always find qualities I like in every place that I visit. There have been many times when I’ve told people that I’m heading to a country, for example, Morocco, Bosnia or Cuba and people question why I would ever go there. They are dangerous, war zones or the food is terrible, they tell me.
