  1. I think we’ve covered about 8 with our 2 year old so far which is ok considering she’s tiny. Most were ticked off during a Vietnamese holiday this year. Cruising along Halong Bay, stopping at islands and caves. Can’t wait to tick off more with her 🙂

  2. What an awesome idea! We want to travel as much as we can with our daughter. She’s nearly three but has already spent six months living in Thailand and has been to Cambodia, but it’s easy to overlook the simple things that we did as kids like catching a yabby and learning to skim stones. Your list is a great reminder that these things are important and can be a great experience too.
