Considering his age, S-boy is the most well-traveled member of our family. C & I have decided to allot him his piece of prime real estate on Dotted Globe, our travel blog.

S-boy has some seriously enviable travel stats. He has been traveling even before he was born; I traveled to Jordan and India while 5-months pregnant with S-boy. Till date he has been on 9 flights and spent more than 50 hrs flying. He has traveled to 2 countries: India and Qatar. He has been on many road trips within the US. He has visited Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Atlanta, New Orleans, Tampa, and Key West and seen many picturesque communities and towns. He has been on a short cruise and traveled in auto-rickshaws while in India. He has camped by the beach, AirBnB-ed and stayed in unique hotels and resorts.

S-boy is a foodie in making and has tried varied cuisines including American, Middle-eastern, Qatari, Thai, Indian, Mexican, Creole, and Seafood. He has eaten plenty of weird things including camel, pigeon, and alligator as well as the regular fare of shrimp, chicken and red meats. He loves chocolates, ice-creams and sno-cones. He has bobbed his head to jazz blues in New Orleans and tapped his feet to Islamic music in the souqs of Doha, Qatar. He loves moving his hands and dancing to Bollywood (India’s film industry) songs. He has traveled to the beach, mountain, desert, villages and more.

S-boy’s idea of travel is very simple. Spending time in the backyard, going for a walk in the neighborhood, driving to our local park, flying to beautiful destinations; it’s all travel to him. When C & I tell him that we are going out, he expects us to be ‘out’ within the next few minutes. On the road, S-boy is a very happy and no-fuss traveler. He has taught us many things about being flexible and enjoying the journey.

    Wow, S-boy is a very lucky little man. I’m quite jealous of his great travels and adventures. Also his taste in cuisine especially his love of sno-cones. I hope to do some travelling soon and maybe someday i’ll catch up with S-boy. x

    I think this is the biggest gift that you can give to your child. To see the world, to encounter with different cultures, to experience all this helps him to be a better, tolerant and more understanding citizen of our world. You are doing great and also lucky a bit, my son can’t stand traveling for long, he cries even after an hour in the car. But he is still little hopefully he will grow out of it and soon starts to enjoy exploring the world.

    Ahh what a lucky boy he is! Its so great for little ones to travel and explore our world, I think it’s hugely educational too!

    Introducing small children to travel at an early age is education in its self. Your little one is well traveled and learning so much. He is very lucky child.

  • Dogvills

    You have quite a traveler right there. I am amazed that he does not fuss during trips. That’s such a relief for parents. I am glad that he is not a picky eater and is open to try new food. He’s got the world as his learning tool, thanks to great parents like you!

    He is a brave little traveller! Everyone who has the chance to show the world for kids is absolutely the best idea. Seeing something else than just the neighbouhood in young age certainly makes a difference when they grow up.

  • Stringsofheritage

    S Boy is lucky to be the most traveled boy of your family. As travel provides most of the practical knowledge, he have got so much knowledge in such a young age. Best of luck S-boy for new exploring horizons

    It’s sometimes can be a little difficult when you grow up living in different countries as I and some of my friends have. However S Boy is at least doing this as a tourist and is learning different experiences while having a solid home in a single place. It should give him great perspective as he continues to grow.

  • Ana De-Jesus

    Aw what an absolute dream. Amazing that S has already visited two countries and has been able to explore different cultures. I wonder where he will go next? x
