My daughter has been a traveler since she was like 15 yrs old.. Her first trip, she jumped on a train and went up north without me knowing about it till it was too late...But, living in Finland is such a blessing when it comes to children and safety.. Dont' get me wrong, you still have to be careful, but its nice that they can venture out and you dont' have to be at the end your seat all night long..LOL
Last year for her 21st birthday, her and her boyfriend ventured to Sweden, which is just on the other side of the big pond..LOL They jumped on a cruise ship, stayed on there all night, had dinner and then in the morning spent the day walking around Stockholm, enjoying the sites..
Well, This photo is of her standing on the bridge of the ship and Stockholm is in the back of her.. I love this photo, even with the sun in the background spoiling it ..LOL
I know, you would really like to see what I'm talking about right?...LOL
