Sri Lanka Sneak Peek

"Oh my my, Oh hey hey
Here it comes, the big parade" - The Lumineers

One of the benefits of living in the Middle East is that you are literally in the middle of quite a few travel destinations. Places that we would never have considered traveling are now relatively inexpensive and close. Of course, a 4 hour international flight to somewhere unknown is still a little daunting when you contemplate doing it with 4 kids age 5 and under. Sometimes it seems like a challenge just to take all four kids to walk down the aisles of a store for 30 minutes. Is travel with that challenge worth it? Will the kids even remember anything 10 years from now?

Well, we decided to throw caution to the wind. This year for spring break (and Yvonne's milestone birthday), we loaded up the offspring and headed to Sri Lanka. I'm in the middle of sorting the photos and writing a few details for a blog post... but I figured I might has well give the blog readers a little sneak peek of the experience.

Stay tuned for more....


  1. I have two words for you...




  2. My kids would have died to have this adventure. We just watched a thing all about elephants on hulu about a man who took care of his elephant for 40 years! We definitely want to all ride an elephant someday!
