Travel Memories. How Can Kids Record Them?
Mini bloggers Part 1.
Travel memories are a huge reason why we started this blog. Not just for us, but for our kids too. When we first started out I tried to encourage the kids to complete a journal. Their enthusiasm for it lasted about a week. I think they would rather pull their own teeth out than complete a journal, so I asked them to come up with a compromise.
Sometimes they produce PowerPoint presentations on places we have been to, or things we have seen. Sometimes they make a record through photos and other times they draw pictures. Im happy as long as they are doing something! Today Evie asked if she could write a blog post. I thought it was a great idea. Will it become a regular feature? I hope so, but I wont hold my breath….

How do kids record their travel memories? Mini bloggers Part 1.
At the moment im in Cambodia but I have already been to Thailand and Vietnam. They are both very different country’s including Cambodia. My favourite country was Vietnam, then Cambodia, then Thailand because I was very excited to go to Thailand but it wasn’t like I thought it would be.
I’ve been on 3 trains, 5 buses, 3 mini buses and I don’t even know how many taxis I’ve been in.
A few days ago I went to all the temples in Angkor, including the Tomb Raider temple and we found the dinosaur carving!!! Angkor Wat is massive, it was the biggest temple I have ever been in. I learned loads of things, like all the carvings tell a story and have a meaning.

We had our own little tuk tuk driver from the homestay and they were a very nice family. We stayed an extra night there and we went to the play park with them and it was a fun fair. It was cool! We went on bumper cars, a bouncy castle and a roller coaster, then we headed back to eat at a restaurant that serves very nice Cambodian food.
Everybody seems to love the temples but I don’t love them, I like them.
When I was in Germany last year I was so excited to be going on a big trip to South East Asia and I was right about being excited!
Thank you for reading my first post.
