4 countries, 10 cities, 2 continents. All before turning two years old.
My son and best friend Caleb was born on Christmas day. Unfortunate for the poor boy–he will end up having a combo present a year, with a card attached ‘Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday! Love, Tita’. (which, even his own mother is guilty, hehe)
Everyone says he looks so much like his dad, but I know he got one thing from me: the gift (or curse?) of love for travel. He’s probably had more passport stamps than I did when I was 18. I hope traveling too much doesn’t make anyone dysfunctional in any way?
My kid’s first trip in Bantayan at 3 months old
Caleb in the UK at 11 months
Caleb’s numerous trips in Hong Kong / Macau, his first at five months old
Caleb in Disneyland / Ocean Park at 22 months
Caleb in Dubai International Airport
One of our recent trips was in Siargao, 23 months
It’s amazing how we are both so blessed to be given the opportunity to see the world like we can now. We’re backed up by amazing family, friends and godparents who care for him so much–they assist us in any way to make our journeys easier.
Caleb is so used to travel he is often unfazed in long journeys on the road, train, sea or air! He loves the journey as much as the destination.
He was getting too small for his bike. For Caleb’s second birthday, I got him a push scooter. Maybe next year, he can be ready for a skateboard. or a surfboard, perhaps.
Happy birthday, kiddo. (and shame you’re no longer lap child-free.)
