What Did My Kids Make Of Their Travels In 2014?

At Heathrow

Someone recently asked whether my kids would remember all the amazing places they’ve visited this year.  There was really only one way I could find out… by quizzing them!

Can you remember where you visited in 2014?

5yo: New Zealand, New Mexico, Thailand, Bangkok, Shanghai, London (think she was confusing Shanghai & Chengdu.. but correct country!)

Where was your favourite place to visit?

5yo: It has to be New Zealand because there was so many things to do!

The 3yo had wandered off by this point.

    adorable! I am going to have ask my kids what they think of their travels. They are a bit older (twins, aged 8) and I bet they say their favourite thing is still a pool.

    I’m with your five-year-old, Cambodia is definitely on my wishlist too! I love these answers, it’s so hard to know what children will remember – the highlight of my trip to St Lucia for my 2yo daughter was taking the nursery stuffed dog and going on a rocking chair. But I love sharing new experiences with her whether they last a lifetime or she’s forgotten by the end of the week 🙂
