(Not thrilled with California.)
I've been composing a post in my head this week about only children, our society and the often disregarded positives of having a singleton. One of these pluses is the enormously easier task it is to travel with just one whining kid, as opposed to two or more complaining things.
Also,I'm guessing you spend a lot less on Xanax, and/or in-fight alcohol! In fact, you spend a far smaller amount on everything, from the number of plane tickets needed to be purchased, to meals, the hotel room, and most of all, a lot less crap from the stupid souvenir shop. Having an only child almost makes travel worth the hassle and debt!
Therefore, when the money tree that I planted starts blooming, I fully intend to milk this only kid thing for all it's worth, and hit the road! And so I present to you, my (basic) travel wish list, which I naively pronounce to be a five year plan.

Now, if only I could remember where planted that tree......
