Ever wanted to pack your bags, just jump in a motorhome and go off and explore Europe as a family? Well, that’s exactly what we (Catherine, Richard, Lottie & Libby) have done since September 2015. Ok, so we’re a practical, adventurous family who love getting active outdoors. So we’ve enjoyed Bobsleigh in Norway, Climbing into Mt Etna in Sicily or Kayaking the River Dordogne. As for us, well Libby is the most active, whilst Lottie is the bravest… and as for us the parents, well we just tag along for the ride!
What's the first questions we face when telling new people about our Roadschooling Adventure across Europe.....? Well it's almost always 'How did you set about teaching your kids?'
With experienced teaching backgrounds behind us, we were pretty confident we could structure the daily learning using more traditional methods (workbooks, daily dairies) alongside the obvious educational benefits of visiting places like the WW1 trenches, Chateau des Engimes or Postojna Caves. All of which made it into our 'Top 10 Educational Experiences across Europe'... but what else have we used to help the girls learning?
Well, we've spent hours researching and experimenting with various apps, until we got it down to these 5 'easy to use' apps below, so we hope they help others considering road schooling/homeschooling their children
So for a family that has lived across Europe for well over 450+ days... who use the internet daily to update their website, road school their children and research new family experiences for the days ahead.... we really do need a stable, cost effective solution to the problem of internet access abroad.
With data roaming charges creating huge bills abroad, it needed to be a solution that provided the ability to get wifi signal or cellular data.... so how has the Kuma Hotspot Package fared against it's rivals?
The best thing about owning a motorhome is the variety of places it allows you to visit, whilst the beautiful thing about learning is that no-one can take it away from you.... So it was always going to be hard to choose our 'Top 10 European RoadSchooling Experiences'. We've discovered some amazing learning opportunities on our roadtrip around 27 European Countries .... But always keen to share, we hope your family might find some inspiration from our Top 10 road schooling experiences below..
