NEXT DESTINATIONS

TRAVELS by KRISS on 15 december 2015

NEXT DESTINATIONS We had a chat with the kids and I tried to get the temperature about how much each of them wanted to keep traveling where, when and how ?

First of all, the kids need to have interactions with other kids outside the family and this is not properly achieved through a life of travels.
Of course they get to see other children but these are always short term encounters and if your children are a bit shy this may prove difficult for them to go and open to activities with others.
Right now our three children mostly spend their time together…for better or worse !

Then, they all wish to keep on traveling but they want to do it a few weeks at a time.
A couple of months a year in a row is the maximum they feel up to right now.
So, as parents we have to take their needs into consideration, in fact a lot ! And this is impacting the decision we have taken for the future.

Tom, Amy and Rose wish for us to settle either in the USA or in Spain for now and this is what we are going to do.
Meanwhile they also wish to be ready to go at any moment and any opportunity and we have all established the following list of the countries and states within the US that we wish to live and discover for a while :

- Thailand : Temples, food, tigers, elephants, pristine beaches.
- Sri Lanka : For the same reasons as Thailand and because it is an island.
- Cambodia : Same again but without the crowds.
- Philippines : Because it hosts the places Cousteau once said were the most beautiful in the world, including the chocolate hills.
- Iceland : To be cold for a change and see dramatic sceneries.
- Hawaii : Because it is a kid’s dream and the surf.
- Rapa Nui : For the statues and the only men in the world sensation.
- New York : To spend a season holiday and see the city’s christmas lights.
- Nevada : For the canyons, the empty roads, Las Vegas and the photographic opportunities.

Right now the list stops there, maybe there are other places that we will want to see at some point but we gave up on a few for the following reasons :

- Cuba : Because there is no internet and we depend on it.
Also walking wallet status is tiresome.
- Mexico : Unfortunately if you simply google image any place in this nonetheless beautiful country, you will end up with pictures of dead bodies right on the first page.
- Egypt : Is it really necessary to explain why a white caucasian family wouldn’t feel safe in Egypt ?.
- Africa : For the same reasons as Egypt and this is a bummer because it may well be the most beautiful continent in this whole world.
- Australia : Because it’s far, expensive and there are other places on our list before that.
- Paris : Because what once was our home country is falling to crumbles and I can’t knowingly put my family at risks in a country where heinous crimes are likely to knock on anyone’s door at any moment.

So this is our non exhaustive list of places we wish life will give us the opportunity to travel to as a family, shoot plenty, enjoy ourselves, blossom and feel good !
