Worldschooling – International Version

It's been awhile since we've caught up with our travels. We thought we would post highlights from our activities with photos. While we are sad our month in Italy got shut down thanks to coronavirus shutting down their borders...we are glad we left for our traveling year earlier rather than later. We are so thankful … Continue reading Worldschooling – International Version

Madrid for a Day

The red eye from Cusco, Peru to Madrid, Spain took 17 hours, and we spent two nights in Madrid for the kids to recover before moving onto our destination - Sevilla. That gave us one day to explore Madrid! With only limited time to explore Spain's capital, we tried to make the best of it. … Continue reading Madrid for a Day

Before we left, we paired down the stuff we were bringing … Continue reading Minimalism – Or How We Lived in 270 Square Feet with Five People for Six Months

I was scrolling and scrolling to the bottom the other day and realized it's getting pretty long. And since I haven't posted in a … Continue reading World Schooling – On the Road

From Coast to Coast – Our Trek Across the Country

From Washington State, we drove from the Pacific to the Atlantic, with a detour through Canada. Starting at Olympic National Park in Washington State, we hit Bruce Peninsula National Park in Ontario and ended in Acadia National Park in Maine... all such pearls of national parks. And wow, the United States is huge. Bruce Peninsula … Continue reading From Coast to Coast – Our Trek Across the Country
