"Armchair Tourist" is a collection of great reading and other resources for when you just can't get there in person.
Our Travel Log The link to our blog spot, also our essays and other writings about homeschooling on the road.

We all do it, fancy ourselves the intrepid traveler, unafraid of any destination. Kathmandu, Tangiers, Marrakesh, Helsinki, Hong Kong, Bejing, Seol, Moorea, Papatee, Galapagos, Marshall Islands, San Pedro, Ixtapa, Cairo. I've been some of these places, others I imagine myself aboard an amazing 41 foot Hans Christian® with these destinations on the list of stops (though not all have ports). I've been an armchair sailor for years. I sailed for a while when I got out of college, and I haven't quite gotten that one out of my system yet. I want to return to sailing one of these days... it's on my list. I developed this page because it was fun to do. It might also serve as the start to your homeschool adventure on the road. Read about it. Learn about it. Go there.

Happy Trails!
