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.
