It´s an exciting time for a young Colombian toddler, named Santiago Valencia. This July, he will leave Colombia and travel to the UK for the first time to meet his grandparents.
The intrepid 3-year-old will be on a wonderful adventure, which we know he deserves. You can follow his journey on the Travel Mono website. We will keep you updated with our regular posts, updates, and pictures from his journey.
Santi will initially travel around the South of England, visiting some beautiful and fun locations. His father will accompany him on the journey, and he told us they have planned to visit areas around London, Bristol, Bath and the South Coast. But they also hope to make at least one European trip.
Santi’s father told us “This will be Santi’s first time away from his mother, but they will stay in contact using Skype and FaceTime. It will be important to keep Santi occupied with some interesting activities every day. He is an extremely inquisitive boy, and we hope this trip will be great for his development.”
It certainly sound’s like Santiago is going to have an action-packed time with his dad. His dad also mentioned Santi was interested in painting and Lego building blocks, so maybe they will incorporate his interests into the trip. Legoland Windsor or the National Gallery maybe? Well, we know which one Santi would choose.
We have agreed to sponsor part of Santi’s journey, by providing $1,000 (USD) towards the expenses. We will keep you updated with regular posts in our Santi’s Travels Section.
