It is important to travel with your kids, because obviously it is a part of their education. I think what we see is, people take travel for granted. Something that they do with their kids. In this country unfortunately because of time and budget we are very constrained with that. It is vital I think to make use of that time to do travel. Especially if your kid is being educated in a foreign language. If they are learning a language in school. You want to take them somewhere where they can be exposed to the use of that language. Secondly I think travel with your kids is an awful lot of fun. Means fun for you as an adult. You are going to have experiences, when traveling with your kids that you are never going to have in somewhere like Disney Land. To take your own boat through the canals of Amsterdam. You can rent a boat there. Or to ride a camel through the pyramids. Or to go swimming with dolphins off the coast of Chile. Things like that are more important and will go further into your soul than anything you are going to experience in Disney Land. I think we are deep-down, hardwired to be nomads. Our forefathers were nomads and I think there is lot to be said that, that is part of our natural way of being. To travel around with your tribe
