    Well put…I plan on traveling with intention on my next trip! Leave a little wiggle room in the itinerary to explore and experience things you weren’t planning on doing/seeing. And don’t be afraid to change the plans once you get there.

    I love that kids can see things so differently. Sometimes you think they are kind of missing the point, but they get their own kicks out of an experience and you have to appreciate that. It’s so funny that yours were so taken with all the cats! 🙂

      I never would have guessed. I guess they love animals – we saw a stork nesting in a tree while walking down the street in Spain, too!

    Some great philosophies here!

    I will be honest (I may be just ignorant), I wasn’t aware ‘Intention’ was a buzz word… certainly not in the small circle that is my world 😉

      Thanks! Slowing down to smell the roses and enjoy your life and travels is a good idea no matter what you call it, right? Thanks for stopping by!

    Amen! When we traveled in Egypt when my son was too young (about 5 years old) to appreciate ancient temples, etc. we set him to finding all the images of Re (Ra) he could find. He loved it, and issued regular reports on the current Re count. He was happy and we were happy. He decided on his own to start counting palm trees as well, but that got to be too big of a task and he gave up.

      Great idea! It kept him engaged and focused – and happy! Great idea!! 🙂 My ebooks serve the same purpose to keep everyone interested and engaged. Thanks for sharing.
