Despite all of the recent traveling to attend various blogging conferences, representing BitMoms and BitDefender is work and being away from home has made me crave family time and a real vacation.
As my husband likes to point out, despite officially teaching part time, I’ve managed to work more than full time 7 days a week on various projects for the last 3 years without a real vacation. I love what I do but if there’s an internet connection, I’m always working.
My husband and I have made it a priority to see the world. Now that our kids are older, I’m ready to unplug and fill their passports with stamps from international destinations. Our kids are seasoned travelers at the young ages of 4 and 6 ½ thanks to cross country trips to visit their grandparents and a couple of trips to Hawaii but there’s an entire world out there that we want them to see.
We talk about where we might go as a family to take in the rich culture of other countries, have incredible adventures, and expose their young palettes to more incredible flavors. Little Miss Techie had her first taste of Thai food in utero when we went to Thailand when I was 5 months pregnant. We’d love to take her and her brother to eat Pad Thai that is prepared right in front of their eyes and sample the wide range of curries after a day of visiting temples and long boat riding. Captain Computer requested a ceviche dinner for his fourth birthday so perhaps a trip to Rio might be in order. We could travel north or south to snorkel in the crystal clear water around the tiny islands off the coast that we fell in love with before we became parents to enjoy time in a place where Japanese and South American cultures blend together.
I’d love to revisit the places we’ve been and treat our kids to the opportunity to learn about the pyramids, The Great Wall, Turkish bazaars, The Alhambra, and Taj Mahal by being right next to the things they will read about in books. It’s time to unplug and fill our passports with stamps, learn about world cultures through our travels, and treat our stomachs to local flavors unlike anything we can find here.
Don’t forget to enter the “Do What You Love” Sweepstakes, for a chance to win your own ultimate family vacation. I was selected for this sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do.
