REFLECTIONS FROM ASIA

by in All Travels, Global Students

As we get ready to head off on our next adventure, Dundee reminded me why we do what we do.  This video montage was his Christmas gift to me, a thoughtful overview of our adventures through Asia.  It’s about so much more than riding elephants, seeing temples, eating new foods.  It’s a personal journey . . . discovering who we are, connecting with the world around us,  forging life-long bonds.

Our stories of adventure are typically met with curiosity blended with a fair dose of doubt.  Can kids really learn while gallivanting around the world? Time will tell, I guess.  But there are a few things I know for sure.  I’m learning at least as much as they are, and these memories will be with us for a lifetime.  I’m not sure we could give each other any better gifts.

P.S.  The musical choices — or at least the last one — may raise some eyebrows.  Remember the post about retro-techno-music blaring from our driver’s car in Chiang Mai?  This little tune was one of his favorites.
