Worldschooler Connect

Are you a World Schooling Family like ours?

Would you like to meet other families while you travel?
Hillsong Reunion
As to our situation, we have been on the road for 5 months now. We started our #DaddyBloggerWorldTour in December 2016 and have travelled through Philippines, Hong Kong, Dubai, South Africa, and now Brazil. Although our kids meet other children in the local playgrounds and sometimes at our hostel or hotel, it would be great if they could connect with kids their age on a more regular basis!!

Luckily, we just found out about Worldschool Connect while listening to a podcast about Family Travel. It was started by an expat named CJ Singer who is currently in Mexico with his wife and kids. Seeing the need for connection amongst long-term traveling families, he created the revolutionary website called Worldschool Connect.

Here are the steps you need to take to connect with other travelling families like ours:

1) Create your Profile

2) List the countries you will be visiting and the rough arrival and departure dates

3) Search the World Map for other families in your area (it will pinpoint any other travelling families within a 500 km radius)

We are now in Rio de Janeiro and will be making our way to North-East Brazil and the Amazon. From Brazil, we will make a counter-clockwise loop overland around South America visiting French Guiana, Suriname, Guyana, Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Parguay, Uruguay, and finally Argentina!

One of the challenges we face is proper education of our kids while on the road. Of course, Rianne and Ryan are learning through every-day experiences and we prefer a Self-Directed Learning approach. However, at times, we realize that they would benefit from more traditional schooling. Meeting other families provides an outlet for us to share our struggles and our fear as well as our experiences in how we teach our kids while still traveling.

If you are going to be in South America over the next 5-6 months let us know and we would love to meet up…especially if you have kids!
