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

17 Days in Peru with Kids — Machu Picchu and Cusco

We arrived in Peru for the international portion of our adventure year to an inauspicious start. Five people with 102 degree fevers. Then the altitude sickness hit.

Headed North – California and Beyond!

Goodbye Malibu! After spending several weeks in Malibu, we headed north, still in California – what a big state!  We stopped at Yosemite for a day, staying just outside and driving in at dawn, watching the sun rise through the amazing-ness of Yosemite.  The girls proclaimed this the best park ever!  (Later they debated their … Continue reading Headed North – California and Beyond!

From the Mountains to the Ocean: Malibu, Malibu, Malibu

From Steamboat Springs, we headed towards California with a brief stop at Zion National Park. The first of many National Parks on our itinerary, this is an amazing stop in the desert. While the days have huge lines for the buses into the park, we went after five, and were able to find a parking … Continue reading From the Mountains to the Ocean: Malibu, Malibu, Malibu
