As you get older, you probably cherish your mom more than ever. Despite fighting with her to get what you wanted as a kid and even during those painful years of teenage angst, she supported you and loved you unconditionally. When you move away from home, you often miss spending quality time with your mother. Sure, you keep in touch over calls: you check in to get details about a family recipe, or you talk to her about a cute person you just met. But there's nothing quite like being with her in person, right? Even though you may not be at home with her you can still keep your relationship alive by planning a special trip with her once a year at the very least. Here's why that's a great idea!

1. It gives you a chance to catch up

Distance makes the heart grow fonder but sometimes you might not have time for each other as much as you'd like. Getting together on a trip means there are no other interruptions. You get a one-on-one session with your mom to be there for her and give her your undivided attention. And vice versa! It's a great way to spend some quality time.



 

2. You might just realize that your mom's your best travel partner

She plans a trip to the T and gets the itinerary in order. She makes sure you're comfortable. She checks in to see if you've eaten well enough. You and your mom are also likely to have a few similar tastes, so you'd want to do quite a few things together, like shopping, exploring places, hiking, or even bar-hopping!
