Have you ever wanted to travel to India? Maybe you have wondered what the Arabic world was like. In December 2013, my family and I traveled to India with a short stay in Dubai at the start of the trip. I wrote daily about our trip. During the trip we learned so much about this part of the world, and fell in love with the places we saw and the culture of India! We also volunteered when we were in India. My son, Sean, said to me the other day, “Mom, even if you had not made me learn traditional academics, I would know more than most kids who go to regular school, because I have traveled to so many different places both inside and outside the United States.” If you can do it, travel can be a big part of a secular, eclectic, academic homeschool journey. You don’t have to go to India either. Sean’s favorite trip was cruising around the United States this summer staying in our pop-up trailer.
I am reposting the daily articles from our trip 2 years ago for those who want to learn about what we did and saw. You can find the daily links here, Dubai and India on Facebook, or you can read them all at once on my blog, Dubai and India on Blair’s blog. (I am editing each post daily, so don’t get ahead of them though. When I travel I worry much less about typos and much more about sharing our experience.)
एक दिन, मैं आप हमारी यात्रा पर देखने की उम्मीद
Eek din, main aap hamaaree yaatra par deekhanee kee ummeed
One day, I hope to see you on our travels,
