The Pros And Cons Of Different Travel Partners
Pros: A trip with Dad is a great way to strengthen your bond outside of the normal family dynamic, and dads tend to bring their own brand of old-fashioned weirdness to the travel experience. Going to Florida with my dad was one of the most memorable (read: crazy) vacations of my life, in part because he insisted on ordering a chef salad at every single restaurant we visited.
Cons: Like any relationship, if your connection with your dad is distant or strained, there's no guarantee that traveling together will fix it. In fact, there's a good chance it will make things worse. Navigating the father-daughter dynamic as adults can be awkward, and dads can be--how do I put this lightly?--grumpy old curmudgeons, which is no fun.
Take the trip if... you're yearning for father-daughter time and are prepared for a trip that's not perfect, but definitely memorable.
