Plan Your Next Family Adventure

The Wanderlust Storytellers go on a Melbourne trip – planned by the kids!

Would you let your kids call the shots on a vacation? Well, the Wanderlust Storytellers family did.

 

In the second installment of the “Don’t Tell the Parents” series, watch as the family of 5 conquers the city of Melbourne. The Wanderlust Storytellers checked into their room at Holiday Inn Melbourne on Flinders, which was specially decked out in a glamping set-up complete with cosy blankets and a teepee.

 

As V.I.Ps at Holiday Inn, the kids also enjoyed special Welcome Packs at check-in, delicious options from the Kids Menu on the Kids Stay & Eat Free* programme.

 

Making themselves comfortable in the glamping set-up, Katie (aged 12) and Lily (aged 8) reveal their passions and dreams in an interview (hint: it involves lots of animals and the outdoors!), as their parents watch on secretly next door.

 

Lounging in their glamping set-up, Katie and Lily discussed their ideal vacations with the help of Chatterbox Cards.

Over the course of the trip, both parents and kids found new hobbies, overcame fears, and learned more about one another as the friendly Holiday Inn staff helped to bring their dream itinerary to life!
