Big Trip 2015

Four-and-a-half years ago we pulled our kids out of 6th Grade and 2nd Grade … for a 9-month trip around the world.

We toured the eastern USA … spent 4-months on Semester at Sea, a college study-abroad program that functioned as a “floating classroom” … and wandered on our own for another 3 months through Europe.

We homeschooled our kids … rode camels… ate mopani worms and puffin.   We reached Barfcon 12.
