Travel and the Future

13 January 2018

Since my 2 boys are big enough to appreciate and learn from venturing to different places, setting up something or at least coming up with travel plans is much easier, especially that my children were able to travel at an early age.

Experiences like these will also aid them when they reach that moment when they can travel by themselves and how to do it comfortably. I have to emphasize on a comfortable travel because it greatly dictates the mood of the next steps to follow after a relaxing flight or journey. It may require more money, but the whole trip is going to be so much fun and memorable in a good way.

What we are doing now is basically preparing our children by exposing them to what travel can bring for them in the future. We know as parents that it will really make a big impact, and once they're exposed to the world at an early age, it will open their eyes to great possibilities. It's an ultimate goal setter for an individual.

Personally, I was already old when I was able to travel out of the country. It changed some bits and pieces in me. I became more patient and understanding of the world that goes around me.

What more for a child...

There are other destinations we plan to go to in the future. Believe me, my husband and I have our own list of travel destinations to visit. A couple's bucket list of places we desire to visit someday. Some of them are Mexico or Peru. I want to go to Jerusalem and then there's Moscow...

But for now, we're at the verge of planning a travel back to the United States... It has been "almost" 2 years since our last trip to America, but it felt like it was just yesterday. We are now looking into the possibility of spending the kids' summer vacation in the United States. My husband just arrived from his recent visit to the US. Yes, he went back to spend time with his brother and sadly, his grandmother passed away during this trip.

It will be Spring if we go back... It will be cooler and greener, better than the usual hot and humid set up we have here in the Philippines. Our planned stay isn't going to be as long because school will begin mid- June. A good 2-3 months is perfect. There's no exact itinerary yet, but Georgia alone, needs to be explored, which we failed to do back in 2016.

Just being able to go some place else is a breather from the usual life. It's rejuvenating. Whether it's abroad or locally, I've always believed that travel brings the same effect to any person in the world. If you're burned out from working or doing the same shenanigans everyday, start planning and think of places and destinations you want to go to, because that's when dreams and goals will begin transforming into reality.
