Today, we are celebrating Charles William’s 3rd birthday! Oh, how time flies so fast!
This was Charles on his 1st birthday:
This was Charles on his 2nd birthday:
This year, we decided to have a simple celebration with his friends at the nursery. We just used his classroom as the venue, and the teachers made a simple decoration and provided eating utensils. All we brought was food for the kids. Charles definitely enjoyed his airplane cake.
I know my son is not the most-traveled kid out there. However, we are still thankful and fortunate that he gets to travel at this young age. I remember when I was a kid, we can not afford to travel or have a car. I was 18 years old when I first set foot on an airplane and flew internationally.
At 3 years old, Charles has done 64 flights, 1 cruise, and numerous road trips. He has been to 10 countries, namely USA, Qatar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Jamaica, Mexico, Honduras, and Belize. We hope to visit more countries in the future!
Booking a Flight. When finding cheap flights, we try a combination of search engines to ensure we’re not missing out on the best deals. We use SkyScanner, Expedia, Kiwi.com, Kayak, and Google Flights, then compare them to the prices shown on the airlines’ website.
Booking an Accommodation. We prefer staying in hotels. Booking.com is our favorite when it comes to finding the cheapest rate. Again, it won’t hurt to check the hotel’s main website. They usually offer discounts for booking directly with them. For last-minute booking, check out HotelTonight. There are also other types of accommodation like Airbnb, hostel (Hostelworld has the largest inventory), and Couchsurfing.
Sightseeing & Tours. We like DIY tours – it gives you freedom and flexibility. You can take advantage of the CityPass and Sightseeing Pass. But we have joined in several tours that maximized our time and made our trip easier. Feel free to check out Intrepid, and Trusted Tours & Attractions for discounted offers.
