Yesterday’s Blogging 101 task was to look around different blogs, choose posts that strike you the most and comment on them. Today’s task is to write my own, inspired by one of those I commented on yesterday. I chose a post, which I found on EdelenRoadTrip (please, correct me, if I’m wrong, but it looks like it was actually the first ever post on this blog :) ).
That blog is written by a dad, who’s taking his small kids (4.5 and 1.5 years old) on amazing road trips around the USA. He’s writing how much he enjoys the time that he spends with his children on the road and how he hopes they would benefit from these adventures.
I’ve already written a post on what I hope my children would learn from our expat life, Memories over Stuff. Although, some aspects of this lifestyle might be difficult for them, there’s so much more that can help them grow up to be confident, open-minded and open-hearted people.
I’m not sure where I got my Wanderlust from, maybe it has something to do with the fact that a lot of my family members actually moved around. Since I can remember, my favourite shows on TV would be travel programs, showing far away places and inquisitive adventurers going on endless discovery journeys. I always wanted to travel the world. If you ask me, where I would spend an extra income coming my way – I would readily give you a long list of places that I want to visit. I was lucky to find a husband who finds it as easy to move as I do.
Something tells me that my kids would feel the itch to travel as well, see new places, go on adventures. My older daughter lived in 4 countries by the age of 5 and the younger one moved to her second country before she turned 2. I’m happy to be able to pass this hereditary Wanderlust to them – after all, it’s not such a bad habit :)
