F is for Finn

I started this blog as a way to document the fun, and challenges, of traveling with our kids, while hopefully helping others with tips we have learned along the way. I will never be one of the big family travel bloggers (although I will keep trying!) and I realize my site has a lot of work that could be done to it, but at the end of the day I am really happy to be doing it for two reasons – F and L. Finn, and Lila, to be exact.

I have only referred to them by F and L on here for the past year, and will probably continue to do so for brevity sake, but today, with my attempt to catch up with the A to Z challenge, it is all about F, so all about Finn.

Finn was born to be a traveler. He has wanderlust in his blood and adventure in his spirit. There is never a time when he isn’t up for a road trip or a plane ride, when he doesn’t get just as excited as we do to plan our next holiday. He took his first plane ride at 8 weeks, and his first international trip at 12 weeks, to Portugal and Spain. He screamed endlessly in a square in Porto and slept peacefully on me throughout Galicia.

His first transatlantic flight was at 4 months, in business class, where he wooed the flight crew and won over our fellow passengers, who cringed when they saw us board.

He has been to 8 countries and 20 states, with more on the horizon. He may not have traveled all of the world yet, but for a just turned 6 year old I would say he has done pretty good. He yearns to learn about other cultures, about other countries.

Finn motivates us to continue what we are doing, to show our kids there is so much more to the world than the bubble we live in. I can’t wait to see where the years ahead of us take him, and I hope we are always along for the ride!

Check back tomorrow to see what else we will have on our A to Z Challenge!
