One of things homeschoolers can do with ease is add travel to school schedules. At the beginning of the year I look at what sort of topics we plan to explore during the school year, and then my student and I plan our “field trips”. We’ve had field trips for Art, World Culture, Foreign language, Science, Engineering, Geography and History.

I got the travel bug when I got out of college. I sailed the East Coast, I traveled in the US. When I started working I took a job that involved travel and I ended up traveling to Europe, Northern Africa and the Pacific Rim. I hope that my student has the same wandering feet! He seems to. Anyone can write about their travels to exotic places we wanted to do something different. What you'll find here are the travels that are part of our homeschool. I hope you like what you find.

You don't have to spend a fortune and travel to the ends of the earth. An adventure can be found in your own town or within driving distance or to sound cliche, in your own back yard! Go camping, spend a weekend at an inn, go canoeing. If you really want it to happen you can make it happen. Give the travel bug to your students and watch them grow and mature. It's a great way to "socialize" your student!

Taking your homeschool on the road is always an experience. Many people have heard of homeschooling but still ask a lot of questions anyway. Once they find out they are in the middle of your "classroom", they share a wealth of information with your student -especially if your student is willing to ask questions.

We love to "hit the road" and the longer we have been homeschooling, the easier it becomes! These pages are probably my favorite ones at this site.

  • "Hittin' the Road" gives resources and ideas on how to take your homeschool on the road. It has a start of a list of good places to go in the US, information about international travel, information about getting online on the road and a fun section called "tips & tales" - stories about other homemschoolers on the road and some of the tips they have to offer.
  • "Our Travels" documents how we have used travel in our studies. Read about our travels and how I implemented them into our studies. Organized by the headers: Topic (What we studied), Subject(s) (the "subject" the travel "covered"), Destination (where we did the study) and Items to Explore (what we offer to explore for your own look at what we did.
  • "Armchair Tourist" was a page that was fun to develop because it discloses where even this traveler is an armchair tourist! It also offers some great reading and other resources for those who prefer to stay in their own neighborhood.
  • "Our Travel Log" - We rarely hit the road without our laptop. Before there was a blog, there was a travel log book. This page has some of our log entries and a listing of our blog entries from most of our travel. It also has a link to our photo journal, because sometimes, pictures are better than words!
