One year ago today, we were in Tokyo. It is amazing how time flies. Most of the time, I forget about our whirlwind family trip around the world. Then, there are moments of remembering our crazy adventures. This photo was where we ate dinner on December 1st 2014. Let me tell you, when you awaken to the fact that for the first time in your life you CANNOT READ, you are very happy with McDonald’s and the ability to point. Fast forward to December 1st 2015, my children started school today in Idaho. This moving adventure has been a whole different type of adventure. I consider myself an experienced traveler, but a novice mover.
On another note, my mom is on her way to NYC with her nieces. My mom has traveled quite a bit, but she is a reluctant traveler and has done so largely because she would come visit me or my dad would drag her. My adventurous genes definitely do NOT come from the maternal side of my family. For the past few years, my mom has been traveling with her nieces because she has no sister and they are all getting up in years and had better visit things soon. My mom has been to NYC twice with me, but my current and future travels are too physical for her so she has needed to find other alternatives. I’m proud of her for taking this adventure cause it’s a big deal for her to get out of her comfort zone of small town Utah living. She has always wanted to see NYC for the Christmas decorations so at 76 she is finally making it happen.
Are you a reluctant traveler that can relate or an adventurer?
