AROUND THE WORLD - Father & Son
Just recently, my 11-year old son Luca and I embarked on an Around-the-World adventure together. For almost six months we traveled through Indonesia, Thailand, Nepal, New Zealand, Costa Rica and Baja California and had an incredible time. It was a dream come true for me to be able to see some of the most amazing places on the planet together with Luca.
As a father I feel it is my obligation and responsibility to educate my son, to facilitate non-academic learning, to enable him to be challenged and enriched by amazing experiences and we certainly got all of this on our trip!
Probably our most intense and special experience was the time we spent in Nepal. We were just a few kilometers away from Everest Base Camp when the big April 25 earthquake devastated the country and we suddenly found ourselves in the midst of a humanitarian crisis. That experience left a deep and lasting impression on both of us. All together we spent time on five continents and had an amazing adventure. Here are just a few of the images I managed to bring back home.
