I came across a fun contest the other day on Ciao Bambino, a website with the goal of inspiring families to travel the world. (Not that I actually need any more inspiration!) To enter the contest, you had to ask your kids for their best travel advice. Here's what Peregrine and Poppy came up with:
Peregrine (8 years):
- Visit towns that are less of a tourist attraction. You'll find them to be a lot more quiet, peaceful, and convenient.
- Also, never buy cheap souvenirs; they'll last you for not very long.
- And one more good travel tip: the smaller the restaurant, the better the food!
Poppy (6 years):
- Don't climb Mount Everest and fall and get killed.
- Do kayak in the river.
- Make sure to not eat poison oak.
- Keep your seat belt on in an airplane.
- Don't jump out of an airplane without a parachute.
That, my friends, just may be proof enough that my kids are getting a decent education! If nothing else, they won't be buying cheap souvenirs, eating poison oak in fancy restaurants, or falling off of Mount Everest!
