We don't know anything about Aristotle's childhood, but it is likely Nicomachus would have expected his son to follow in his footsteps. So, Aristotle quite probably traveled with his father on his work, which was the way of the physician of the day. Unhappy with the conditions in the region, Nicomachus began traveling and working more in neighboring Macedonia and eventually became the personal physician to Amyntas III, king of Macedonia.
