Imagine for a moment that you could go anywhere you wanted to go. Where would that be? What places would your children like to visit? What experiences would inspire research or lifelong hobbies? What cultures would get your kids excited to pursue a new language or delve into a new art form?
We’ve dabbled in on-the-road homeschooling, and we’ll continue to do so for the simple reason that my daughter and I adore traveling. She likes the planes, trains, and automobiles and is intrigued by new places. I enjoy experiencing new cultures and ecosystems. We make a good traveling team.
If you’re considering a summer road trip or a year-long (or more!) adventure, it’s best to learn from the experts: parents who have taken their children on learning adventures. They can give you a sense of the tricks and the trials of extended travel with kids. To fuel your inspiration, here are some of the most intriguing travel and homeschooling blogs that I’ve found in ye olde web-o-sphere.
