In the 344 days on our European road trip so far, we've tried to find new interesting opportunities to both challenge, inspire and educate our children.... Searching for novel ways to learn topics that can sometimes feel staid and boring in a classroom... So where better to learn than in the greatest outdoor classroom of them all... this time learning about ecosystems, environmental geography and learning a new skill that challenged us all - SUP paddle boarding!!
Ever fancied educating your kids whilst journeying around Europe... well we've taken the plunge and enjoyed every minute...with experiences like this (on Ile de Re) making all the difference!!
Across our journey, we've also discovered that local guides make this learning so much easier... perhaps as it's coming from someone new, maybe as they know more than we do on this region or just cos they're so much 'cooler' than their parents.... well Jordane & Charles from SUPevasion certainly match all 3 of these!!!
All viewed from the 'best seat' in the house with 360° views of the marshlands... our SUP guide Charles seemed in his element, pointing out birds ranging from egrets to buzzards... foraging for edible food from in and out of the water... from describing the 'fleur de sel' and how it is harvested... all whilst desperately balancing on the brilliant Lokahi paddle boards...
