We contemplated many vacations spots, and serendipitously chose Nicaragua. We will leave in a few days and last night I lay awake with the pre-trip jitters. I was wondering if we were doing the right thing - taking our little children on such a 'big' adventure. All the what-if's ran through my head. (Probably the most perilous thing that might happen is that Ben could lose his blankey.)
But a friend recently gave me this quote on travel, which helped me remember why we roam in the first place. I hope Ben and Laura will look back on this trip and agree.
