|Bryce and Denali on a plane|
So far on this trip, we've flown on planes, rode on fast commuter trains, enjoyed a leisurely steam train in the country, driven in rental cars on the wrong side of the road, hopped in taxis, and walked dozens and dozens of miles throughout the Scottish highlands, lowlands, cities, and farms. These kids have traveled.

As adults, we don't seem to revel in the means of transportation. By that I mean we don't get as excited anymore about the flight or the ride on the bus as much as we do about the destination. To our children, these activities have equal merit. Forgive the cliche, but they enjoy the journey as much (or sometimes more) than the destination.

|Waiting for the plane...we're VERY tired.|
Can the trip itself be the end goal? Can simply driving, riding, flying, or boating be the goal? I certainly hope so.
