Getting to Know Us

One of the most amazing things about Worldschooling is the number of incredible, like-minded families we’ve had the opportunity to meet. When my husband and I first set out from the U.S. to teach in Japan in 2007, we didn’t know anyone who had done anything like what we were getting ready to do. It all seemed so terribly adventurous because there was so much that was unknown.

Fast forward to 2017, when we left Japan to begin our new life of full-time travel, and we had a few examples of families who had done what we were considering. Intrepid travelers like Karen King and her family had not only begun their journeys before us, but they’d also had the foresight to chronicle their adventures in blog posts and videos that helped to explain a little more of the whys and the hows of selling it all and roaming the globe.

I am forever grateful to those who don’t just do, but also share generously from their experiences and teach others who want to do what they have done. I love how they have helped us to expand our circle of friends to include even more parents who want to literally give their children the world, just as we do. It is because of their examples that we even had an inkling that our desires were not as completely insane as many led us to believe.

Now that we are 1.5 years into our nomadic explorations, we are excited to have the opportunity to return the favor! We are happy to count as friends people we once only read about from afar. We are excited to be using the resources they provide and using the suggestions that they have shared to enhance our travel experiences around the globe. They have welcomed us into a whole new world of possibilities for travel and Worldschooling, and we want to be able to do the same for you, dear reader!

You can check out our recent feature on Worldschooling Central here, to learn a bit more about who we are and how we got started. This is one of the most in-depth interviews we’ve done do date, and I’m honored to be able to share such detailed information to contribute to the Worldschooling community in this manner.

Our journey as Worldschoolers started in our kitchens, and we traveled vicariously through the dishes that we created with our children and shared with our community. We continue to do the same from Our Kitchen Classroom, no matter where we are in the world! Care to join us?
