I miss traveling, like real airplane travel, exotic travel! I was actually contemplating doing a road trip near where we live for the sake of convenience and as I looked at the rates of vacation rentals, I started to wonder why I would want to pay $250/night for scenery that is just so familiar, so domestic, so blaaah. My kids are 2 and 4. We took them 2 weeks ago to New York City (we live 1.5 hours from there) and it was exhausting. We were going to stay overnight but just couldn't stand the idea of another day. I miss going to Europe and Asia. I don't have any family over there although my parents offered that we could all go together to China in September for the World Expo in Shanghai. DH is excited about this, but my mother and I have started to have trepidations about the flight (14 hours) and once we get there, negotiating the city with the kiddies. It'll be like New York only more crowded, and three weeks long. I mean it's not like I have to go, there's no wedding I need to attend, no relative I promised to show the kids to. Should I go or wait until they are older, and how much older?
