Once, I was going to travel around Europe.Nina and I were going to spend a few weeks backpacking, travelling by Eurail (train), and staying in youth hostels, ending our trip visiting relatives in Finland. We even bought some backpacks. They were $40 each at Costco, and definitely not suitable for backpacking. How naive we were!
Should I say those were the good days? Dreaming up big travel plans but then giddily getting ready for HAPS to see 'the boys'. Dreaming of a future that is today.
They were good days, but right now, these are the good days too.
I can't say that I still have any burning desire to travel. Unless of course, I could do it with my (older) children.
If they express interest in travelling some day, I will whole heartedly encourage it.
Either way, I love world maps.
Can you say awesomeness?!?!
Okay, maybe I'm the only one getting excited about a map on my wall,
but every time I walk by it,
Every time my kids stand in front of it and says "Let's pretend..."
I hope this map continues to spark their imagination. I hope it makes them curious. I hope it makes them realize how awesome and diverse our world really is.
The world is a playground, and life is pushing my swing. -Natalie Kocsis
