A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,600 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 27 trips to carry that many people. – 2015 WordPress Report

  1. Hi,
    I stumbled on your blog and I love it!! You have such interesting photos and I like your writing. We are just beginning to travel now that our daughter is a little older, it is really hard to travel with a young child, but now we have a chance to see different places. What places would you recommend that would interest a child of nine and her parents? Thanks!

    • Hi Laura,
      We love to travel as a family. And I think 9 is a great age to get out and see the world. Kids are curious at this age. SB was 9 years old when we made the cross country trip from Florida to Los Angeles. We found this to be a great age to do a road trip. She was old enough to entertain herself for the 6 hours a day drive in the car, and she loved getting to see all the changes in the land and people across the country. We also found at 9 she was old enough to enjoy trying new foods. That made dining out part of the adventure. I know other families that have had good success with road trips at this age. Beach vacations, National Parks, and amusement parks are always fun for this age too. Places like Yosemite, and the Grand Canyon offer a range of programs for all ages and fitness levels. They also offer a range of lodging accommodations so you can pick what best fits your family.

      I find that international travel at this age can still be a challenge. We took SB to China when she was 8. She had a very hard time with the trip due to the extreme cultural differences. The food tasted strange to her, and she has a hard time with strangers reaching out and touching her all the time. In China it is acceptable for strangers to walk up and touch young children on the arm or head. We Americans are not used to that. She had a very hard time on the China trip. International travel to a place that is similar to your home environment would probably be easier at this age.

      I think that the best family trips for us have been the ones that include a selection of activities that each family member can enjoy.

      Have a great trip! And If you feel like sharing, please let me know where you end up going.
