I've spent my post college life traveling the US and parts of Canada for work. Certainly wish I had the wherewithal to do something like your trip prior to having kids. It's pretty much an opportunity lost now. On the bright side, I'm pretty much a God in the Hampton Inn customer hierarchy. Heading up to Jersey and Delaware this week. If you want pics for your travel blog let me know.

i actually don't know that i'd post pictures of first world countries with the frequency i do backwater (allegedly) places around the globe. who wants to hear about your 'adventure' in france where you took a picture with the eiffel tower? whoopdeefugindoo. everyone's seen pictures of that mess. i'm trying to get off the beaten track and blog about/photograph stuff still undiscovered to the average american.

"heres pics of me at the resort in cancun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" piques noone's interest. "trek to balikpapan" is a virtual unknown and thus of great interest to me (and, i hope, to viewers and readers.)

how old are your kids? having experience traveling abroad, even if just briefly on a family vacation, would be invaluable building blocks for them educationally. it opens up a whole new world, whole new ways of thinking. you never know what interests or passions you'll unlock by providing them with a cool experience.

if you ever want travel ideas/advice/cheap tickets hit me up! travel is far more affordable than people imagine.

if you travel to new orleans, completely ass up the entire rat bowl and take pictures of it, i'll blog that

Kids are 7 and 2, so it will be a few years before we do anything abroad.

I haven't had to go to New Orleans for a few years (thank God), but here is a photo from my trip to Dallas last year, It's not a family in front of the the Eiffel Tower but it's close.

philly b. rarely do i get envious but in this case i am. i got to do a pretty good amount of travelling with my wife prior to kids. by no means were they of the scale and scope you are doing. but it was enough to offset the longing while my kids grew.

however, everytime i get Outside mag i just sit there and stare at the sites and want to go grab my gear, get a map, some funds, and hop in the 4 runner and just go see what i can get into.

i salute you sir for following your passion(s). i too have a few personal mountains to climb and soon enough i will.

keep rocking man
