This morning I read a good family travel article from the Daily Mail. See link here. I was very impressed. I am myself a grown up child of adventurous parents who took my sister and I around the world as youngsters. And not in the five-star hotels either. I’m talking hostels and overland buses from Nepal to New Delhi -trains to Bangkok etc. We had a lot of fun and lots of near misses- the precursors to free-range children perhaps. I know it makes me the “crazy” person I am today- with a consistent unfailing wanderlust.
What is interesting I think is that with my own son, I have more trepidation. I look at this couple and their Parents of the Caribbean adventures and think- wow, we couldn’t do that, I would simply be too nervous.
In the article, Brittany said: Scott and I have both been sailing for most of our lives – we grew up around boats so sailing was sort of in our blood. With the babies it’s a lot of work, twins plus a three-year-old is no joke – it’s exhausting.
It sounds thrilling actually. Now I just need to get that old travel courage back and give something similar a go.
