10 things to do before you turn 10. Top travel ideas for the family.

Anita McLachlan - 17th November 2009

"...and as a parent, these are the experiences that shape your children, so that hopefully they'll grow up to be just like you. Only better with computers."

I inhaled this article in the recent October/November issue of Australian Traveller. It's one of the best I've read in a long time.

Talk about great belly laughs. I think it's because I could relate to what Dorian had to say and could appreciate his wise words which have obviously been forged from may great family experiences.

Click here for a link to the entire article in Australian Traveller. Here's a sliver of what Dorian has to say:

  • 1. The World is not enough: Theme Parks. Dad's Tip...Take your own sangas and drink to cut down on the wallet bleed and avoid you throwing up your Dagwood Dog in the Big Dipper.
  • 3. A capital idea: The Cultural Holiday. I like Canberra. (apparently one of the least used phrases in the English language)...
  • 10. The Great Outdoors: The Camping, Caravaning & Fishing Holiday. Anyone can stay in a hotel and watch cable TV while the kids discover the hotel's free internet and sit on Facebook all night. Around the campfire, your kids are actually forced to talk with you!

Enjoy the read!
