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!

    Yikes – I don’t know if I could’ve gone in one, and I’m not even particularly claustrophobic! Just kind of scary, I think.

    It really puts those tunnels into perspective when a ten year old can’t stand up in them doesn’t it! We visited there again two years ago – the tunnels were just about perfect for my 4 year old. For the rest of us, crawling through them certainly made us appreciate more what people lived through during the war.

    Great photos! I’ve been here and it’s an absolutely fascinating place to visit and learn about the Vietnam war. It was also here that I realised that I do not like being enclosed in small spaces!
