  1. So true!! As a teacher and parent I vote for travel with kids. They learn everything you describe without realizing it:)

  2. I think travelling is one of the best ways to learn, even as an adult! I didn’t travel much as a child, but the trips that we did take I still remember and I learned a lot from. When we have children I want to start travelling with them from a young age

      So glad to hear you talk about remembering the trips you took as a child. I think many people fear that the kids won’t remember so they shouldn’t make a point of taking them. It is an interesting thought, too, since most would agree that kids learn every single day – even tiny ones as every single thing in the whole world is new! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I agree with all of these. It makes history so much more real when you see it in person rather than just reading out it.

  4. I think you learn a huge amount by travelling. It helps to build empathy and understanding of different cultures/races too. We see people doing similar things in a different setting and suddenly we are brought closer. It breaks down stereotypes and helps build knowledge about a range of subjects as you have detailed. Great points and I completely agree

    So true!!! The best part… the kids are having so much fun at the same time:) Thanks for this piece:) Happy Travels!!!

  6. Love, love, love this post! My wife and I are both educators and found this to be re-affirming.

  7. Every one should be travelling. Travelling the world gives you a broad mindset. No doubt about it.
