Greetings One & All! Since our initial post, we’ve been getting a lot of encouragement, and a bunch of questions about our progress on learning Spanish. So consider this an update!
So many people ask us about the kids education in Spain and it is never easy to answer. You see we can’t speak for all of the schools in Spain, we can only share with you our experience. We are certain that everyone has different experiences depending on location, type of school and the biggest variable, the students attending.
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.
We’re going to do something fun in this post. Something fun, and something easy. We get so many comments from readers who like reading our blog, and they often ask how to start a blog of their own. In the past, we have kept our tips and tricks to email, as we wanted to stay true to our Family Travel Blog vibe. Though as with anything, things begin to change. We are answering this question far more often and people look to us as the experts. So, the time has come to share what we know with you and make sure it is easy to understand.
As I sit here writing in Cambodia, a million thoughts are swirling through my mind. Notice I didn’t say “flowing”. Nope they aren’t even running through my head. They are actually swishing back and forth, churning and swirling around like a washing machine. Of course it isn’t just with me, it’s the same for Alan as well. So what is going on in our minds? We are trying to figure out what is next for Wagoners Abroad?
This is a post that I’ve been putting off for a long time. Why? It’s not a particularly pleasing topic, but it’s one that needs to be covered. Heidi and I knew the place was going to be a bit rough, but wanted to visit it anyway. As a tourist, it’s easy to see all of the fun stuff. Beaches, cities, waterfalls, and the like are worthwhile but in this post, I’ll cover the UXO Museum we visited.
Since we’ve been in Thailand, the kids have been very curious about all of the monks we see around town. They are full of great questions, questions for which we really didn’t know the answers. Of course we would often refer to our friend Google for many of them, but they wanted more. I knew of a few Monk Chats in town, so I decided to find one that would fit our schedule. Read all about our chat and how it gave us a thirst for more learning.
Did you know you can make paper from Elephant Poo Poo? Well you can! If you are in Chiang Mai with kids, this is a fun afternoon. Look they have Free WiFi too!
