Through the Eyes of the Traveling Child – Tigger from 1Dad1Kid

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.  This will be the first in a series of posts about the traveling child and we have been honored that Tigger responded to our interview.

Tigger is 11 years old from 1Dad1Kid and has been experiencing the life of travel with his dad for over 2 years.  Let’s see what he has to say about his experiences:

What do you like most about traveling?
No public school!  I like homeschool better.

How long have you been traveling and where have you lived so far?

What have you learned from your travels thus far?
About cultures, how they make certain foods, and that some people use pig skin as seasonings.

Tell us about how you are receiving your education?
I use YouTube, sometimes I read. I learn a lot of things from playing Minecraft. I learn a lot from my dad when we are exploring and stuff.

I only really speak English, but I know a little Spanish, French, and Thai. Spanish and Thai weren’t as hard as French.

Yes, I do have a lot of friends. Most of them are nomads like us, and some of them just travel and later go back home.

I can’t say I have a favorite, but probably living where scorpions and iguanas live.

  1. We had the great fortune of meeting Talon and Tigger in Paris. Tigger is a fun kid, well-balanced, personable and bright and my husband and I really enjoyed spending time with him and his dad – even though Tigger tried to get a pigeon to land on my head! ;o)

    • Hi Patti! Oh that is great that you met up in Paris. It would be nice to bump into them somewhere someday! I love the pigeon on the head, good clean fun (until the pigeon decides to relieve itself). Where are you spending your summer?

  2. Great interview! I’ve been traveling for a little over two years too and the only thing I miss from back home are our family pets. There’s something really nice about having the companionship of an animal, and I know our dogs would have loved to explore some of the places we’ve been to! Thanks for sharing Tigger’s tale of travel!

    • Hi Charli. Yes it is tough being without that pure joy when your pet greets you. I am so please Tigger was more than willing to participate and love his answers. Thanks for stopping by to read and comment.

Come on and tell us what you think!
