Children I met while traveling


Traveling is among the best thing ever happen in my life. The best part is, I can do it over and over again. Thus, our hors d’oeuvre for today is definitely on tidbits of traveling. The small tiny aspects during travel which seemed less prominent then, but make a greater impact later after you finish traveling. So, here is my take:

I love looking and observe children while I was on the road. Not to say that I despise or avoid them in my daily life. It just that I have very minimal contact with children in my daily life. I hardly associate with them, except for my nephew who is quite smitten by me 😉 Well, I found out that no matter where they are children are just the same; being children. Somehow, seeing them would make you forget how far you have travel and how tired your feet are. Just by smiling back, you will definitely feel energize and young again.

“The soul is healed by being with children.” -English proverb
