Thanksgiving in the USA for Australians

Today is Thanksgiving in the USA for Australians and we have just returned from Hollywood to be with our LA friends. We are sharing the meal with friends to our hosts. While having our meal, we hope to seize the opportunity to get more luxury travel experts advice from these locals – host and friends. Single parent travel requires that you be inquisitive and gain as much knowledge as possible about the area you are visiting. By doing this, you get to know all about the unknown beauties of a place, making your family travel more adventurous.

We arrive and are greeted with a turkey dip. Not sure if you can see the vegetables in the shape of a turkey?  Sitting down, we all give thanks for something.

I am very thankful for this trip and here are a few things realize I am thankful for too:

  • for being so much freer;
  • for feeling like I am living life again;
  • for new friends;
  • for my son.

Next, we hear some great poem before the meal.   This is really new to us as we experience Thanksgiving in the USA for Australians for the first time together.

The table is long – it goes through two rooms. Our host is a great cook and there are lots of yummy treats and the food has been prepared with love.

Our friend is also a Pinterest fan. So she has made Indian and pilgrim hats for the kids which are pretty fabulous.

Here we all are – having a great day that goes into the night. We are full inside our stomachs with turkey, mash and gravy and all the vegetables. And of course, some fabulous desserts follow at the end.

The kids then entertain us. They are all dancing at the end.
