Artist Elena Orwick – Through the Eyes of the Traveling Child

This is interview number eighteen in our series Through the Eyes of the Traveling Child”.  We have a creative traveling child for you to meet and her name is Elena Orwick!

Elena Orwick - Through the eyes of the traveling Child. We often are asked about what the kids think of their experience as a traveling child and how things are going. Do they have friends, how are they being educated and are they social? We thought these are likely questions for all types of families, so we decided to start a family travel interview series “Through the Eyes of the Traveling Child”. We don’t often get exposed to the opinion of the kids and perhaps think we should. We all know the Wagoner kids are full of their two cents worth and are loving travel.

We are thrilled to share her story with you and hope you enjoy.  Elena is doing amazing things with her creative talent and she is just 11 years old!  We know so many families who travel full-time, part-time and are expats.  So many people wonder what the kids think about all of the travel, so that is why we started this series.  We hope to show you exactly what the kids think.  The words are directly from them, so let’s see what Elena has to say.

1 Year Of Homeschool – You Can’t Learn From Travel?

We spent 1 year touring Southeast Asia and during that time education was done on the road.  We called it homeschool, as they were learning wherever home was.  We weren’t really sure what to expect, but we all seemed to have one thing in mind when it came to schooling at the beginning.  By the time the year ended, homeschool evolved into something quite different.
