travel with kids

It took 30 hours and 6 flights to get to Melbourne. By the end of our trip we’d played 300 games of Simon Says and hours of I spy. We lost one pair of shoes and went through 3 bottles of sunscreen. We stopped at 14 playgrounds. We left November in Alaska for the start of Australia’s summer–outdoor markets, sunshine, swimming, fish & chips, zoos, city walks,  rose gardens, camping, roller coasters, fruit bats, kangaroos, wombats, mangoes, flat whites, aquariums, and roundabouts. It was a long trip home again, and we  all had the flu our first day back in Kodiak. It was worth it.
