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.
