In the end Budapest would provide me with my most difficult traveling experience to date but not without showing me the wonders of travel through a child’s eyes.
While I was trying to figure out how the metro system in Budapest works I heard English and naturally gravitated to it and met Chris, Paul and little Jack. They were on holiday from Brittan and kindly let me join them while we all tried to navigate through Hungary’s capital city.
Since I don’t have any kids I’ve never had the opportunity to travel abroad with a wee one and Jack’s charming personality was invigorating, I was thrilled to see this bustling city through his eyes and remained enchanted with his laughter throughout the entire day.
Here are a few photos from my day in Budapest through the ever adventurous Jack
Then it was time to give Jack a chance to document his view. I told him to take pictures that I could share with my readers and he was thrilled to have a crack at it!
I bet this is a very common view for kids, always with cameras in their faces with adults trying to capture the wonder and excitement of a child.
Jack informed me that we were traveling on a “silly bus” because it is green, “What a silly bus” he kept saying.
Spending the day with Jack and his family really opened my eyes to how different a city is compared to an adults interests and attention span. It was fun to travel a bit differently and I am really grateful they were willing to share their travels with me. PS Paul and Chris if you are reading this please e-mail me because I lost your information
What’s your opinion traveling with children vs. adults?
