As an adventure-loving expat family travelling the world for longer than our teenagers can walk, we hope to share knowledge and inspiration with you! We love exploring our wonderful world and do not get tired of trying new things, travelling to new places and going new routes, as we learn so much about ourselves, others and life in general.

Through the desire to not only sharing our own challenges, but to help finding solutions for fellow travelling parents, teachers and other interested parties, this site was created. Here we want to share knowledge and expertise on educational themes, travel related advice and create a network of like-minded people on issues concerning global education objectives.
