Geek Boy Travel Photos



My husband and I both work in software. Our children, poor lambs, could type before they could write. Having a three-year-old who’s more technically literate than many most of the adults around him was extremely cool in 1999. Now, I’m paying the price. When we’re traveling, my child will take my camera and take detailed photos of technical glitches in information displays anywhere and everywhere we happen to come across them. The photo above was taken in Darling Harbour, Sydney.


This display should have been showing information about Dugongs at the Sydney Aquarium.


At the International Space Center stop on the bus tour of Kennedy Space Center.


With the NASA logo visible in the background – you know, just in case you didn’t believe that NASA too suffers from the “blue screen of death”.

Happy Photo Friday!

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!

    This is hysterical… and yet I suspect most of these glitches are caused by our 10 year old, who has a way to find glitches in software if they exist… At 2 he caused his seat back computer to hang on a 9 hour flight to Amsterdam, meaning he wound up using mine the entire flight (they couldn’t reboot his until they landed?!?!?). Why we didn’t switch seats I’ll never know.
