I'm sure I'm biased and everything, but I just have to say how impressed I am with my little traveler. Only 10 years old and she's spent 6 weeks on the road, packing and unpacking, hot, cold, wet, eating strange foods most nights . . . coping with underground trains, buses, strange languages, boring museums, etc. with hardly any complaining. As a matter of fact NO complaining, just some homesickness in the past week. Really, she is amazing! I know that when I was 10 I wouldn't have the fortitude she has had. Now onto Paris and home in 2 days.
