Kids Fishing in Hoi An Vietnam

Hoi An, Vietnam

The sweetest moments traveling can come while waiting for transport or during a mishap. My bicycle got a flat here, so while my boyfriend took off to fix it; I wandered around. Watching these boys fish reminded me of my own childhood and got me to thinking about how many children are losing out on a wild upbringing by sitting inside and staring at screens.

Traveling reminds me that kids need to be kids!


Stay tuned for our next Instagram challenge coming soon!
