We want more time as a family, especially before our eldest daughter enters secondary school & her teens. Increasingly I feel that the education our girls will get on the road will be so much better than any of the prescriptive curriculum they get at school ... And they will get more attention from us in helping them to learn about what they are interested in. I can't wait!

We are a family of 5 planning to travel from next April/May (2014). Family all know (and are very supportive) and tell their friends, but I have been slower to tell all of our friends ... For lots of reasons. We're getting there tho, and I'm gradually telling more people. Reactions are mostly hugely enthusiastic, with only the odd person who wonders why we could possibly think of pulling the kids out of school (they are 3, 7 & 9) ... But Why wouldn't we???!! I can't wait to educate our children in the real world! The only other reaction was the one asking in horror how much such a trip would cost ... That kind of comment really embarrasses me. I also hope to meet with other travellers on our way ...
