Travel Notes from my Son

ME: Hey Alexander. Look at this great vacation my friend is taking in Jamaica.

We look together at Kris’ Instagram stream

ALEXANDER: Where is that?

ME: Jamaica

ALEXANDER: Isn’t Jamaica dangerous?

ME: Not in resorts it’s not. [I then show him the resort website]

ALEXANDER: But resorts are boring.

ME: You liked Costa Rica.

ALEXANDER: I liked Costa Rica outside of the resort.

ME: It would be the same kind of vacation. We’d have activities planned for each day.

ALEXANDER: But we’d just come back to pools and restaurants and white people. That’s so boring. I want to actually go somewhere and really be there.

For the record I completely agree with him… until I’m presented with no air conditioning and a lumpy mattress.
