How lucky are we?! Having yet another extended travel time to share as a family has been absolutely fabulous!
As a family we have shared so many experiences and created extraordinary memories as we learned more about languages, food, ruins, music, religion, traditions, politics, settlement, government, caves, Darwin’s Theory of Evolution, organic farming, wildlife, earthquakes, volcanoes…
After only a two month trip, we have returned to Nova Scotia different people than when we left. Travel (not 5 star, of course) yields individual growth and an attitude of more acceptance and less judgement. Furthermore, because we were constantly together (attached at the hip) our family bond has certainly deepened.
As children, we both travelled far and near. We are thankful to our parents (Jackie, Winnie, and Ron) for imparting their sense of adventure on us that we, in turn, have passed on to our children.
How lucky are we!
