Living Differently

Travelling with Less Clothes and Dumpster Diving

Hi guys, greetings from London where we’re sweltering in the final throws of summer. We made the mistake of taking the tube into China Town on the hottest day of the year for a family lunch today.  It was a great lunch, it’s a family tradition of ours to do lunch on Chef’s day off, …

Travel Doesn’t Change You, You Find Yourself

I get ideas for posts in all kinds of ways, sometimes I want to tell a story about some cool  place we’ve been, sometimes I want to help or inspire, sometimes ideas just pop into my head and sometimes, like today, I get ideas from other people’s words. Earlier this week I read a post …

Living Differently, Uncertainties, Stories, and Bookings

My husband (Chef) was on the phone to his sister. She asked where we were, what we were up to, where we were going next, “Well right now I’m eating breakfast in a hostel in Kuala Lumpur, but tomorrow?

Living Differently. Owning Less, Living More

But to some it must look crazy. How can we prefer backpacks to bedrooms, co-working spaces to steady jobs and challenging destinations …

1 Year 16 Countries and Blogging Progress

It may look like we’ve spent most of 2015 not travelling, sitting here in our little house in Romania, but we’ve been to 16 countries this year. I know! I couldn’t believe it either. They haven’t all been short trips, a month here, a month there, a few flying visits and long stays in London and Romania, …

Homeschool on the Road. What Gear Do You Need?

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. I’m not going to write a list. We were homeschooling on the road for over 5 …

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. When we strew, we leave useful, interesting, attention getting, fascinating, educational objects and materials in the paths of our kids. They are then able to discover them for themselves and learn more about them, …
