We recently sat down and asked the children in our family (the ones capable of speech) some questions regarding our traveling experiences. It’s always interesting to hear about what they most enjoyed, in part so that we can tailor future trips more to their liking. We thought we’d share their responses with you for the fun of it.

Traveler, age 3

What is your favorite aspect of travel?: Staying at a hotel. Because they have swimming pools and we get to swim in them.

What has been your favorite place we have traveled to:Ooo. That’s a great question to answer. Disneyland!”
