Through the Eyes of the Traveling Child – World Travel Family Kids (Boo and D)

  1. Provide us with a little background on who you are, where you are originally from, name, age and what you are doing with your family, any siblings?
    • We have always traveled as far and as wide as possible but 12 months ago we left home in Australia to start a full-time travel lifestyle. Our first year of nomadic family travel is now complete, 4 continents, 12 countries and an incredible year. Now we’re travelling really slow for the summer and through to January next year. We’re stopping a while in London while making shorter trips and making the most of everything the UK’s capital has to offer.
    • We are Boo (7 years old) and D (10 years old). We were both born in London and moved to Australia when we were 1 and 3 respectively.
  1. Where do you call home?
    • Boo – Everywhere.

  1. What do you like most about traveling?
    • Boo – All the stuff you see on the way.
    • D – We see new countries and it’s lots of fun. We get to explore, it’s just fun. We do lots of exciting things and go to exotic places. 5 star hotels and cruise ships are the best fun.

All the countries we have been to so far on this trip are Laos, Thailand Malaysia, Sri Lanka, UK, Canada, USA, Guatemala and El Salvador , but we have been to lots more. In Malaysia we stayed in Back Home hostel, in Laos we stayed in the middle of the river, which sometimes got flooded..We lived in Australia and Britain in our own houses. When we’re travelling we don’t live anywhere..
  1. What have you learned from your travels thus far?
    • Boo – Nothing and maths, I like counting money. I don’t know.
    • D – Lots of interesting things, it would take about 3 years to get through everything. And I’ve learnt to always have fun.

    • Boo – My mum! I hate school.
    • D – My mum homeschools us.. We learn about interesting foods every day. My favourite food was Tom Kha Gai on Ko Phangan in Thailand. We read, I’ve read the Hobbit and The Old Man of The Sea. We talk about things and we watch documentaries, we watched one yesterday about The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, it was very interesting. I liked the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. I learn a lot about money because we have pocket-money every day. We have 10 Baht in Thailand. In Laos we had 2,000 Kip. Travelling around we learn lots of new things. I never want to go to school.

If you want to get to know The World Travel Family a little better, check out their blog. Oh and we can’t forget about dad, he is the World Travel Chef!  A true traveling, blogging family.  Feel free to comment and ask them more questions.  
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.   If you would like to read other interviews in our Traveling Child Series, just click the image below.

  1. Cute interview! And quite the blogging family.

    It’s always good to read what the kids themselves have to say about the experience. We often hear from the adults instead!

  2. You know NZ Muse, if you had asked me 2 years ago I would have said the same thing. I think we are ready for homeschooling now, but time will tell.

  3. I know what you mean Alyson. Our kids could talk and debate Harry Potter for hours. They are just starting to watch Doctor Who. Thanks again for letting them participate.

  4. They’re not really into being interviewed, but I think they spoke their truth. Now if you’d like to interview them about Harry Potter or Doctor Who…6 page essay!

Come on and tell us what you think!
