is there a snake theme here?


portugal with children snake farm

I got a huge kick out of the comments readers left when I posted a photo of the WanderDad with a huge snake – taken in Zambia in 1969. On reading these, WanderDad suggested that I follow up with my photos of the next generation of our family with a python – taken at a petting zoo outside Algoz in Portugal.


As I mentioned last week, Spring Break is a great time for low fares to Europe and The Algarve, on the south coast of Portugal is quite beautiful at that time of year.

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!

    Funny how every time I’m with my son or my students, I have to pretend I’m all into touching the snake, or giant cockroach…I put my foot down at tarantula though.
    Cool photo, the kids look so into it.

    I can remember being fascinated with snakes as a child – but now that fascination is gone & I’m with Carolina. I have to force myself to act interested instead of squeamish each time we go to see the “reptile man” in Seattle or a snake exhibit in a zoo.
