A couple of weeks back my not so little man Lucas reached double digits! I can’t believe that he is 10 years old! To celebrate, we had our favorite burger at Peter Luger.

Due to COVID, 2020 wasn’t a very good year for anyone. In terms of travel, Lucas and I took a trip to the Netherlands, otherwise, we all went on some bunch of road trips.

While I didn’t write a 9th birthday post for my young world traveler, he was at 65 countries (UN Member States), adding only one new country that year.

This past year fared much better for us. However, we didn’t get back on a plane until late June, the day after the school year ended!

Lucas’s first flight (since our trip to the Netherlands in February 2021) was to El Salvador. After that, we went on a month-long trip around the Balkans. During this trip, Lucas reached a huge travel milestone!

He made it to his 70th country at just 9 years old! (This does not include various disputed territories he’s also visited.) Yes, Lucas is a true world traveler.

Here are some Travel Stats for 2021:
