Travel Delights

My husband and I love to travel and explore new places.  When we had kids, we decided that they should not stop us from seeing the world.  We just incorporated them into our travel plans.  When my son was four months old, we flew with him to Dubai, a 7-hour flight away from Singapore.  As I was nursing him then, travelling to Dubai, and later to India was a breeze.

Travelling with one kid is easy.  But when you are travelling with a toddler and a preschooler, that can be quite challenging.  Luckily, both my children are wonderful travellers – i.e. they do not screech during the take-off or landing of the plane or suffer from restlessness on the flight.  Our longest flight has been 17 hours to Los Angeles, USA when they were 5 and 3 years old respectively.

Also, travelling is a great way for us to spend some quality time as a family unit, since we have a helper who lives with us.  As they got older, we have contemplated travelling without them, but what’s the fun in that?  Who can I show off where I went to school in San Francisco and the places I used to hang out (Ghirardelli Square and Fisherman’s Wharf) as a teenager?  Who will be wowed by my unimpressive prowess in the sea? And who else better to share my first time at Disneyland (Hong Kong and Orlando, Florida) than my 2 and 4-year-olds?

We figure that we have a good decade of travelling with the kids and showing them the “wonders” of the world before they wise up and trade us for younger, more fun and energetic versions.  By which time, my husband and I promise to travel like the “rich and famous” and sojourn to more exotic locations like Tuscany, Monaco and the French Riviera.
