I used to be a world traveler who could live for months out of a backpack on little money. I love people and culture watching and learning. These days I travel with a child born in 2009. My standards have gone up and my style of traveling has changed. I still travel some and thankfully my daughter seems to enjoy it too. Though gone are the days when I could eat one meal a day and be ok. With the little one I want someplace I can cook since it is so much easier (and cheaper) than trying to eat out with kids.
