Pa se je končno začelo … planiranje namreč :). Karte smo kupili že marca. V bistvu je ful zamimivo kako smo sploh prišli do tega, da gremo na Sumatro. Najprej je bil plan, da se odpravimo v Vietnam … vse odločeno, zmenjeno … potem pa v bistvu sploh ne vemo zakaj, smo se začeli pogovarjati o Mynmaru. Vsi so ga hvalili … Bagan je čist hud. Pa smo si rekli … NORO – TO JE TO. Ampak … potovati z 6 in 10 letnikom ni isto kot potovati sam :). Prvo … otroci gredo lahko povsod kamor greva midva. Sposobna sta, prilagodljiva sta … včasih celo bolj kot midva odrasla (pa tudi sposobna sta včasih več, kot se je izkazalo na Šri Lanki hahahhahaha) … torej tu ni težav. Problem pa nastane, če otrokom potovanje ni zanimivo. In to je po najinem mnenju najbolj pomembna stvar na katero moramo biti pozorni, če potujemo z otroci. Ne se toliko obremenjevati s tem kolk je kje umazano (pri nas sem jaz edini, ki sem kdajkoli dobil drisko na potovanju), koliko je pekoča hrana (vedno se da dobiti nekaj kar bodo otroci jedli). Torej … probem pa nastane, če otroci nimajo motivacije! In to je bil glavni kriterij po katerem smo se odločili za skok na Sumatro. Pokrajina mora biti zanimiva in lepa, biti mora čimveč različnih živali ter prijazni in zanimivi ljudje. In nenazadnje lepe plaže, toplo morje in kakšen koralni greben za snorklanje :). No še en pomemben dejavnik je bil, da destinacija ne sme biti preveč turistična – in Sumatra odlično ustreza tudi temu kriteriju. No pa, da boste vedeli kam sploh gremo … semle … :).

Naslednjič poveva več o tem kako in za koliko smo prišli do letalskih kart … 😉

And so it begins … the planing :). We bought the tickets in March. Basically it is really interesting how we made the decision to travel to Sumatra. At first, plan was to travel around Vietnam … we were decided … then, we actually do not even know why, we started thinking about Myanmar. We heard a lot good things about it, Bagan is insanely beautiful … YES – THIS IS IT, we said. But ther is always a “BUT” … traveling with 6 and 10 years old kids is not exactly the same as traveling alone :). First of all … kids can go ANYWHERE we can. They are definetly capable, adaptable … and they have every quality they need to travel to the same places we can (sometimes they can do it even better as was proven in Sri Lanka hahahahhahaha) … so the problem is not here.The problem is when the journey is not interesting enough to the kids. And our opinion is that this is the most important thing we should pay attention when we are deciding where to travel with kids. It doesn’t matter how dirty the country is (actually I am the only one who “caught” a diarea in our family), how spicy the food is (everywhere you can find some food they Will eat). So the problem is when they lose the motivation! And that was the main criteria when we decided to travel to Sumatra. There sould be interesting landscapes, animals, nice people and some beautiful beaches :). There was another impotant thing … the destination should not be too touristic – and Sumatra fits here also wery well. And now it is time to show you where we are going … here … 🙂

Next time, we Will write down a few words about how we got the tickets and how much did they cost us … stay tuned 😉
