It is cold and damp here today, and it even snowed earlier. Hard to believe when just 2 days ago it was in the high 60s here!
Tonight at dinner, my son and I talked about where he wants to go for his special trip this spring.
When our daughter was the same age, we sent her to London and Paris with a friend. It was to be the first of many trips abroad on her own. She loves to travel, and if her finances would allow it, I think she could be happy living the life of a Nomad.
We consider ourselves very, very fortunate to have been able to expose our children to different cultures through travel. And the college our son attends actually requires a study abroad experience in order to graduate.
But before he goes abroad for an entire semester, we want to give him the same opportunity to travel for a week or so to some place he finds appealing. Right now, he and his friend are having trouble deciding just where they want to go.
