Homeschooling is not difficult but it is time consuming. It takes time to prepare and supervise homeschool lessons but it’s no hardship when you love your kid and enjoy being together. I think this is why homeschooling and traveling are a natural fit – away from your regular schedule you have more time for yourself and your family. And whether you’re visiting Miami or Madrid – new places are an inspiration to explore and learn together.
Besides love, I think the next biggest thing that made homeschooling work so well for us was having access to the internet. It gave us the confidence to try it out. There’s an enormous homeschool community online so we could always find answers and advice – everything from help with math and grammar to the story of Pompeii (along with cheap train tickets to get there). Searching resources on the internet meant we didn’t need to pack alot of books so we could travel light.
