Creating a dedicated board on Pinterest can help you plan your trip and share your research with family and fellow travelers.

Use Pinterest for Planning Family Travel

As I’ve been researching our big trip, I’ve spent a lot of time online. A lot of time. I can’t tell you how many hotel reviews I’ve scoured, how many kid travel posts I’ve read, how many gear recommendations I’ve scrolled through.

Often I’ve found treasure troves of information and ideas. Rather than take notes, I’ve pinned them.

I started out with a family travel board, but then as things got more and more specifically geared toward France and the UK, I created a dedicated board for those countries.

Since I started, Pinterest has rolled out a map feature so you can literally pin your pins on a map as well as on the board. It’s a very cool visual for thinking through your trip, sharing ideas with others, and bookmarking it for a later date.

Plus, with the easy sharing capabilities of Pinterest, you can show your family members and fellow travelers all your great discoveries.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
