Summer is so ideal to take a break from our busy lives and to embark on a family travel adventure! The options are endless – both nationally and internationally.
When I travel, especially long distance, I am sensitive to motion sickness. Motion sickness is actually a disturbance of the inner ear that is caused by repeated motion such as from the movement of a car, the swell of the sea, and the motion of a plane in turbulent air. The symptoms associated with motion sickness include nausea, vomiting, and dizziness, and you can also be sweating or just not feeling that well.
I find chewing gum and sitting in the front seat of a car looking at the distant scenery somewhat helps, but to fully relieve the motion sickness symptoms, I rely on Gravol™ whether I am travelling by land, air or water. I usually purchase the Gravol™ Quick Dissolve Chewables for Adults and for Kids that are ideal since they can be taken without water. If you prefer more natural products, Gravol™ Ginger tablets, lozenges or liquid gels made with certified organic ginger are also a great choice. Besides helping with motion sickness, Gravol™ Ginger products also help treat indigestion and upset stomach. They are easily packed and are non-drowsy too, so keeping up with your children won’t be a problem!
Gravol™ is only found in Canada, so make sure you stock up before leaving the country!
Here are the top 10 places to travel this summer:
There’s nothing like getting your family’s adrenaline pumping by climbing up the CN Tower and leaning off the edge of a 553 meter high skyscraper! You can read about our family trip to TO, here!
Sure, the city is known for its majestic slopes, but without the snow you’re looking at a beautiful backdrop for outdoor adventures with an unforgettable view.
Cavendish Beach, PEI
Red sandstone cliffs with crystal blue water surrounds you at the Cavendish Beach. While you’re there, explore historic sites, like the Green Gables Heritage Place.
If you’re craving a breathtaking view – this place is for you! No need to go halfway across the world to become mesmerized by natural beauty. Kayak between the Rocky Mountains or simply take it all in.
Quebec City, QC
Here you’ll find hints of European charm mixed with authentic French Canadian character. Grab a poutine and walk around the old city, home to iconic Chateau Frontenac. If your legs start to give in, hop on a horse-drawn carriage along the cobblestone streets.
Grand Canyon, U.S.A.
One of the wonders of the world! It’s worth getting on a helicopter to soak in a truly life-changing experience. If you will be visiting the Grand Canyon soon, you can find out more about bringing the family for an affordable and fun adventure by reading this review by OMC Blogger, Vanessa.

Hong Kong, China
A bustling and exciting harbour city, you’d be surprised how easy it is for tourists to explore. There are lots of kid-friendly activities, such as Hong Kong Disneyland and Ocean Park.

A trip for the adventurous: the city showcases original ancient temples, including the Angkor Archaeological Park, cited as one of the most valuable archaeological sites in South-East Asia – so you know it’s worth getting over the jet lag for!
