As every morning for the past two weeks, I woke up with our friendly rooster, it is a bittersweet feeling though because today is our last day in this beautiful country. We have spent unforgettable moments here, it has been a real adventure for us and most of all our kids.
I love to think of all the new experiences they will bring back home with them and talk about to all their friends, I honestly feel that this is the real treasure.
One day at lunch, while we were waiting for our food, they started asking me about my travels, we spent two hours talking about the different places I had visited when I was younger and all the stories I had for each place.
I feel blessed for my travels around the world and I am happy that my husband and I didn’t let fear to travel with young kids stop us from giving them this experience, now they will have plenty to talk about!
During our stay here we met lots of people who have been wonderful to our kids, we saw different ways of doing things here compared to where we are from, we went on elephants, Emma Played goalie with one, Cosimo got tickled from another.
We went on speedboats, longboats, on a family motorbike and almost went down a hill! We went to the beach every day, we went swimming in the rain, held a baby crocodile, listened to the Gibbons singing, walked up to a waterfall, explored a few islands, saw lots and lots of tourists, did a little Thai Boxing, sat on a Buffalo.
We learned how they grow rice, learned how they make rubber, did a fish spa, ate lots and lots of fruit, relaxed on a hammock, ate on the beach, went on a canoe, swam with fish, did cartwheels and handstand on the beach, got massages, fed monkeys at a temple, cuddled with tigers, visited a few temples and so much more.
The best part of it all, was that we did it together, also if daddy missed a few adventures because he was busy, once he got back home at night we told him all about it so he never felt left out!
I hope you enjoyed some of the stories I shared from our trip, I wish my eyes had cameras inside them so I could record every moment and share it, this is it for now but we are already planning our next adventure!!!!
