Name: Cana (2), Wake (2 months)
Location: Phenom Phen, Cambodia
Favorite Family-Friendly Place To See or Thing To Do Here: Visit the king's palace. See if his flag is flying -- if the flag is up, the king is in.
Best Tip for Traveling with Kids: About a week before we left I could feel myself dreading 37 hours of travel to Cambodia with a 15 month old. Then, I decided that it was going to be a great story, and I was going to take great delight in living the story. As it turned out, Cana gave us a lot to delight in. She was like a mini-celebrity on the plane. She specialized in blowing kisses and giving high fives on the way to the bathroom.
Favorite Way to Make it Feel Like Home: Getting the bulk-head seat was a lifesaver. On international flights they can install a bassinet there (take bedding to put in it). Cana slept 14 of the 18 hour flight in that bassinet.
An Item you MUST Take With You While Traveling: We've always enjoyed the adventure of being away from home as a family. If we're all together, our kids feel like they are loved, and that's a great traveling "home".
