This question has had me stumped for long enough, it's time to seek advice.
If you wanted to expose your young child to the world, where would you begin and how would you organize/plan their travels?
I waited until I was in my 50's to have a child and my wife and I are blessed to a have great little traveling companion. He is currently 4-years old and working on second and third languages. We've traveled all of our lives, until COVID kept us home, where we explored deeply, hoping to cultivate a "sense of place."
Now, any where I go, or think to explore, I want to do it with/for my son. We are very fortunate, to have a lot of free time and some resources. A couple "extended" trips a year seem possible. But, if you're thinking of several trips, where to start and where to go next? Is the organizing principle human history, biomes, art, disappearing fauna and flora...?
I imagine including Service in trips, and probably needing to purchase carbon offsets.
The responsibilities and opportunities are immense, matched only by the excitement of all the learning we'll do together. I'm early on this path of parenthood and I'm considering advice from all quarters.
Thank you for considering my question.
