Stay curious. Stay alive.
That's why I travel a lot, always with an open mind.
I have 3 great kids, and they have been traveling a lot too. The kids are not a limitation to the traveling, on they provide for new experiences and a different other and more open contact.
We have always shared houses, camped, lived with the people of the country we visit, that's why I like to open up my place for other travelers too. This way I always remain open, even when not traveling myself.
