Around The World 1994/95
with a Four - five year old
Keep Calm and say YES to Adventure!
We set off from the UK on the 20 November 1994 on an adventure to travel around the world with our son, Trent who was 4.5 years old at the time. Friends and family warned us that we would almost certainly be home within weeks – which of course never happened. It was a trip of a lifetime: an authentic appreciation of every unique experience through the innocence of a child’s eyes. Transcending creed and culture and via communication without language – we were welcomed into the most of humble of homes and experienced generosity in the most unexpected guises. With Trent we climbed mountains, volcanoes and traversed high altitude passes. We explored the paths less travelled at that time. We snorkelled with turtles, dugongs and sharks in the most pristine seas. We learnt about each other and ourselves. We home schooled. We became more tolerant. We laughed. We loved. We lived for the moment. We were grateful. I healed. What a gift travel is. There are no obstacles to prevent you from living the dream – there are only opportunities to be found in challenges. Live, Laugh. Love. Learn. Travel. Our journey took us through: Africa – Australia – Hawaii – USA – Fiji – New Zealand – Singapore – Malaysia – Thailand – Indonesia – Philippines – Hong Kong – China – India – Nepal.
