Globetrotting Kids: Going home

GlobetrottingMama note: On our way home I asked Ethan and Cameron to share a bit about how they were feeling coming home. This is what they wrote:

My last post

by Ethan Davis
Today I am so excited because tomorrow we will be home with all my friends.
The whole trip meant a lot to me because we went to places that we never visited before and they where many stuff that I loved like the terra cotta warriors. We went to 29 countries in just a year which was impressive. We went to “cold” New Zealand, met friends from international continents and I even want to see everyone I mean everyone in my family tomorrow.

I am going to miss traveling on planes and eating Thai food, dumplings and lots of international activities including zip-lining, learning , exploring and museums. I was waiting to come back the last 4 months of this trip. This was one of the most amazing trips I ever had. I cannot wait to see my school, classmates, my neighbours even my house in person. I am now happy to go back home, feel my bed, see the house and tell everyone close to my house that I’m back. So those are all the questions that I could think of and goodbye and I might do this trip again – who knows?

    I love hearing the perspectives of children directly from them. Even though it’s torture for him, I’ve made my son write posts for our blog. I love getting that insight into what he really liked about our trips!

       You never know what will resonate! It’s always surprising to me to see what they come up with.

    This was absolutely adorable! I hope I get to take my children on trips around the world and that they appreciate it this much.
