The highs and lows of long-term travel with kids
We had a great two-weeks in Bali, spending Christmas and New Years in Ubud, a town in the island's uplands.
It was strange and a bit difficult to be away from friends and family, but we managed to make the holidays very special and certainly memorable.
LJ actually picked this destination. We let her chose between Sri Lanka or Bali and she opted for the latter. We even let her pick our Airbnb (after I came out with four suitable and affordable options). She loved having a big say in our adventure and she made a great choice.
The families start arriving around 4:30 p.m.
School is out for the day, the sun’s strong rays have let go a bit and soon the show will start.
We’re here, having just picked up LJ from her friend’s house. She’s high on the sunshine, fresh air and friendship that have blanketed her since early this morning.
It was a great day.
She finally managed to climb a coconut tree and learned she’d play the lead in the upcoming school play.
