Written by Kobi Klaf (what a nice change from the norm!)

The island life cannot be fully described in one post. It would have to be a book to deliver what  island life brings you.  We have lived on Koh Rong Island in Cambodia for over a week and plan to stay much longer.  The notation of strolling along the vast beaches, hearing the waves crash on the sand, the Christmas songs slipping from every resident door, and the sounds of the local talking Khmer fills my heart with joy.  The island life is diverse and great. For example, today, the Kids and I (Kobi) went fishing and actually caught few fish and believe it or not, ate it! Yesterday we walked to a near lagoon and had an awesome time in the water.  Finally Gabi and I had the opportunity to be romantic.  We hugged and kissed in the water while ignoring the presence of our kids around us.  The is no doubt that living close to an ocean, especially on an cool island, makes you think about where you want to spend your time.  It made me think that living like that near the water brings me great deal of pleasure.  And this thought brought me back to an old dream I had about cruising the world on a boat. How closer can one be to the water?

We had heard a lot about people who decided to cruise the seven seas on a boat.  The most popular ways I guess to cruise the world would be on either sail boat or using a cruise line.  In order to run a sail boat, one needs to be certified to be a Skipper.  So before we decide to pull my boat’s anchor, learning to run the little machine will come first.  However, I can always start cruising around using any good cruise line’s ship. I have been once in one of the those babies and they are HUGE.  Basically, you have everything you need on the boat- taking from a adult point of view.  But when it comes down to a family, we have to consider our kids’ needs as well which do not include a good bar and a fancy casino.  And if we want to “kill” two birds in one shot, what not have a fun cruise that cover the whole family needs.

Along many great cruise lines about there, there is no doubt that Disney Cruises are a great options to excite the whole family. Not only the family enjoy all a cruise can offer, but also enjoy the presence of the famous movies characters all around you (until you want to through them off the boat). Sure that this is not a substitute to the real deal.  A visit to Disney Land in Orlando should be on every family’s bucket list.

It actually has been on ours for a very, very long time. We’ve looked up here and there how to get to The Land of Mickey Mouse, OrlandoFunTickets.com is a great site to start looking.  I do believe that we are going to visit Disney Land during our next visit in the US otherwise our kids will blame us for everything that is wrong with them when they grow up.  One way or another we are f****d! Cheers.

Every taken your kids to Orlando? Ever felt like a bad parent for not doing it?

  1. My family just wrapped up a week long trip to Orlando. We’re actually driving home now and I happened upon your blog after doing a search on nomadic families. I’d love to start this kind of adventure but keep telling myself I’m crazy!

    Anyway….. we did not do Disney in this trip but did 2 years ago and had lots of fun. It’s a great experience. My husband and I enjoyed it just as much as the kids. We decided to go back to Disney next year. However, this time we focused on the many other things that Orlando (and surrounding areas) have to offer. There’s the different Florida springs, Siesta Beach (gulf side), and the Orlando Science Center that we thoroughly enjoyed. It was a great place to visit!

    Loving your site!

    • melissa my dear. thank you so much for finding us and loving us, in all of our beautiful shades of insanity. thank you. so so so glad to have you hear, a part of the joy and fun and dancing (and crying). so happy. and you are a dear for taking the time to share by commenting. thank you.

      yes, it is crazy based on what society tells us. no doubt about it. look up on the site ‘stop abusing those kids’ and you’ll get a lot more to read about it, but know i was really pissed when I wrote it, thus i was cursing a bit more than usual. So lovely to hear of your disney experiences. it is so on our bucket list. we would love to have that too. So glad you are trying new things, looking out to see what else you can find like the springs and science center and more. keep leaving your footprint by commenting. love it dear, and would love to hear of more of your adventures. hugs, gabi

  2. Gabi, wow thanks for commenting. It was quite exciting seeing this pop up in my emails. I’ve spent the last week stalking your website, Facebook page, and YouTube. Haha. I love your raw, uncensored posts. They’re real and I like that! Humans experience so many emotions but we’re expected to only share the “positive” ones. If we’re sad, angry, or stressed then people don’t want to hear it. I disagree. We shouldn’t suppress any emotions. Let it out. 🙂

    I read the post you mentioned a couple of days ago. How sad that people feel so negatively about your lifestyle. I think it’s a wonderful thing for children! I think we’re ready to do the same.
