Heather Erquiaga is Trekaroo’s Assistant Blog Editor. She can usually be found on Southern California’s trails with her husband and two boys. Her family is on a mission to earn as many Jr. Ranger Badges as possible. In winter, chances are she’s obsessively checking the weather for a chance of snow while curled up with a good book. Follow her travels on Instagram.
When we give kids the ability to relate what they experience (see, hear, touch, taste, and smell) with how they feel, we empower them to be empathetic, and think critically. One way to give kids the opportunity to connect with travel is by journaling.
