*Day 3 of 31 days of Traveling & Living Overseas with Kids
**All stories are true.
In all countries there are commonalities
and finding them makes the world feel smaller.
Kids will play with kids whether they understand each other or not…
…we had to wait late into the night for a delayed flight in Istanbul
and my kids made a new friend playing iPad games together.
(This scenario has happened countless times.)
Everyone needs to eat.
We try to find restaurants where the locals congregate.
It’s fun to discover what makes the spot special,
even if it does mean getting a parasite or two.
Everyone gets lost from time to time.
At least once a week I usually get lost,
but that’s good because then I see a few new streets
and can practice lowering my blood pressure.
Many people here will roll down their window and yell over to the car next to them
asking about roads and where to turn. I am thankful I am not the only one who gets confused!
Please note taxi cab drivers know the best ways everywhere!
(Even if it means cutting through a nursery parking lot to get away from traffic).)
