Any 10-year-old can plan a trip, right?

By | January 11th, 2013

Last week, our middle son tried to hit the road by himself. He didn’t make it very far. In episode two of our Away is Home family travel blog series, his big brother explains that it takes more to plan a trip. And he takes him everywhere while trying to explain it.

Actually, most of this video was shot at Full Sail Studios in Orlando (Mom’s old school). There are backdrops for New Orleans, Savannah and even Venice.

But where’s the family really going? Their sister says she knows, and she’ll explain it next week.

  • Very clever series.

    It’s a shame these are not accessible. It would be nice to be able to have captions and understand what is going on.

  • I’m really sorry about that. We’re working on adding transcripts to the existing segments and including them in future episodes.

    Here’s the transcript.

    Older brother: “My brother didn’t make it very far. I had to explain to him that you can’t just go. You’ve gotta plan. So in the meantime, we visited a few places. Like New Orleans … Savannah … Venice, and I mean Italy. We went everywhere … well, not really. So where are we going next? I have no idea.”

    Sister: “I know, I know! Follow me!”

    That’s all you’re missing.
