"Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer"
There are so many places that I want to visit that I don't even know where to start. I have a list as long as my arm of places I want to go and things I want to see, and most importantly places I want to show my children. One day they will all be grown up and going off to find their own adventures and it is so important to me to make these memories and share adventures with them now before that time comes. I have the rest of my life to see the world, I have a short space of time to see it with my kids before they fly the nest. With A being sixteen and making plans for university, those times are not far away.
One of the top places on my list was Paris and we were lucky enough to have finally made it there this Summer. The sights were breathtaking and the children were in awe of the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame Cathedral. We rode the metro, and took them on an open top bus tour of the city and revelled in the history and beauty of the city under blue skies and sunshine.
Another of my top spots is New York City. I daydream about walks through Central Park and visiting the zoo, gazing up at the Empire State building, paying our respects at Ground Zero, taking a cruise on the Staten Island ferry to soak in the sights of the Statue of Liberty & the Manhattan skyline, and watching a show on Broadway - and a visit to NYC wouldn't be complete without taking the kids to the American Museum of Natural History!
