It’s been a special treat traveling these past six weeks with my adult kids.
No matter how old they are – I worry about them. We sent Erik off last week, back to Burkina Faso to complete his Peace Corp commitment. We hope to see him again in August in Portugal.
Today Arne and I return to Thailand for three more weeks in that magical country, and today we say good bye to our oldest son Dane. Dane will be staying in Siem Reap working at an English school here. I think he will be great at that- and this city is so awesome.
For three weeks we will be traveling on our own. I think that will be good for us too – I look forward to connecting with Dane again in Vietnam in February.
People always say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. It’s true as far as travel when it comes to our family. However both my kids find joy in volunteering and helping others less fortunate than they are, even if it means living in difficult environments. I never had that calling. I am proud that they do. I am hopeful all of this will steer them to a fulfilled future. Wherever that may be.
