Time… is on our side, yes it is (Musee d’Orsay, Paris, France)

A common way of thinking is that world travel is something only for the childless and empty nesters. “I would love to do what you do, but I have kids” is something we heard once or twice before becoming parents ourselves. Responsibility for a small human is absolutely life changing, yes, but in a way that opens new doors.

Two year old GCCJr has already been to 28 countries. Since he first boarded an airplane at 5 months old after we figured out how to pack our favourite baby gates up for the various hotels and AirBNBs, he has been putting his 2 passports to heavy use. He has already circumnavigated the globe twice, and enjoyed visits to large swaths of Asia, Western Europe, and North America.

Whether at home or in a far away land, The World through the eyes of a little one is an opportunity not be be missed.
