TRAVEL FROM HOME: A NEVER ENDING JOURNEY
So why we must travel from home?
Travel from home to fully enjoy the places we will visit
We all have experimented fast tourism. Running from one highlight to another don’t really give us the time to enjoy a place in all its beauty, to fully understand and appreciate its history and importance. So let’s start to travel from home! Now we have all the time we want to read and watch about our next destination and being more conscious when we live it.
To give kids time to travel with their fantasy
When I was a little mole, I remember I started to travel with my mind before getting into a place. I read books and had a very precise idea of how a place could look like. Sometimes I was right, sometimes completely wrong, but this is what kids can learn traveling from home. Reality can always surprise you more than fantasy!
Travel from home to experiment
about what? Cooking, for example. Read and watch about local traditions and food can be a good excuse to try new tastes and being helped by kids while cooking! Do you remember my pastiera recipe at Easter? Tasty, isn’t it? I bet you all want to go to Naples as soon as possible!
To stay curious
Remember what Steve Jobs said, stay hungry stay foolish. We all should experiment a bit o foolishness in life, not to mention the pleasure that only a creative and curious approach to life can give to us. Travel with kids is a journey that matters 2 times, when they go and when they come back. No one is the same person when comes back from a journey, especially kids. They learn so fast and remember things for a lifetime. Travel from home helps them to desire to travel for real more and more and become more curious, more respectful people. The next generation!
