Between the long car ride, even longer flights, packing, unpacking, upsetting a child’s routine, missing school, potential dangers and so on… the list of reasons not to travel is long. We’ve also been criticized for not taking kid-friendly trips (read – Disney… but we are working on that). And, what’s the point of going through all of this when the kids will forget most of it?
For me, the answer is simple… I want the foundation of their thinking to be rooted in the notion that the world is so much bigger than their town in their state in their country. I want the connections in their developing minds to form on whispers in different languages and footsteps on ancient relics.
I want them to hear the music of different nations, to see art and to experience the culture of worlds near and far.
I want them to experience the wonder of nature. To feel snow and dessert. To splash in waves and to climb. I want them to explore.
I want them to know that our town in our state in our country in our world are amazing and filled with places to play and people to meet…
