Even seasoned travelers make big, costly mistakes. Family travel can teach so many lessons as we model being in the larger world for our kids, but what happens we model bad behavior facing family travel fails? What happens when we freak out? What do we teach our kids when we are stranded on the way to Disney World?

The best beach vacations are not always planned.
