    Alyssa's Virgin Islands Experience


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     iCostello thinks 4 years old is the best time for a child to start traveling.
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    I have been very grateful to be able to travel the world. In 2012, I decided to introduce my then five-year-old daughter Alyssa to the world outside of mainland America.

    From the moment we boarded the plane, she was excited to visit an island. She talked for hours! The plane ride was longer than expected for her. She slept the entire flight.

    Once we arrived, she noticed that cars drive on the left side of the road. There were giant lizards crawling on sidewalks. Nothing brought joy to my heart more than when she finally was able to see the ocean. It was a trip she still reminisces about today.
