My research is hampered by the language barrier, so please correct me if I’m wrong, I’d love to hear about families homeschooling in Romania and I know that some do …

What is Enough Socialisation? – Worldschooling & Homeschooling

I received an e-mail from a reader recently. He and his wife were thinking of taking their child on a travel adventure, a taste of worldschooling, but were concerned about socialization. They thought she wouldn’t “get enough socialization away from her friends” and asked for my opinion. It’s an interesting question. Homeschool socialisation ( and …

Which things do you really need to homeschool on the road? (Some call this form of homeschooling travel schooling, road schooling or worldschooling) What books, supplies, materials, equipment and resources do you need to carry with you? It’s not much.

Strewing The World. Strewing, Homeschooling and Worldschooling

Strewing is a word used often in homeschooling and unschooling circles, I’ve not yet seen it used in relation to worldschooling.

They are then able to discover them for themselves and learn more about them, …

Tikal With Kids. Discovering the Maya in Tikal Guatemala.

The highlight of our time in Guatemala was Tikal National Park, the most incredible set of Mayan ruins in the world. But Tikal with kids, is that really going to work? Is it safe? Is it too hot, too high, too boring, too far? No way, the boys had a ball. It’s always important to learn …

Stonehenge, Avebury and Prehistoric Britain

Stonehenge would probably be pretty high on any non-Brit tourist’s wish list. Some of us get a bit blase about our history in Britain, we’re forever tripping over castles, stately homes and prehistoric monoliths. I must have driven past Stonehenge 20 times in my life and never, ever, stopped. Not because I don’t think it’s …
