We’re Home, What’s Next?


We’ve been home in Ho Chi Minh City for two months but I still haven’t unpacked Big Blue, the rolly suitcase we lived out of during our 10-month world schooling adventure, because I don’t want it to be over.

Our awesome World School travel team: Big Blue, Miss M and Sunny. At Osaka train station getting reading for our WorkAway gig in Kamikawa.

It’s pretty obvious that I didn’t keep the blog updated while we were traveling. My last post was from Australia, so you guys don’t know what we got up to in Indonesia, India and Japan. We really did have an amazing time!

I will share some of our adventures here soon. Promise.

In the meantime, I’m keeping busy with some new projects at home.

Last week we launched a new tour, the Calligraphy and Coffee Trail. I’ve taken two groups out so far and it’s been so much fun.

The other project is huge huge HUGE. I’m putting together a home schooling co operative. The plan is to have a class of eight students, taught by a qualified teacher. There will be lots of fun excursions, and, ideally, a procession of traveling WorkAway volunteers to act as teaching aides or specialist tutors. You can read our help wanted ad for travelers here.

There are quite a few home schooling families in Ho Chi Minh City, and I’m hoping to meet them over the next few weeks.

The idea has been bubbling along for a while now. In a way, it’s an extension of our world schooling adventure, where we set out every day to learn something new.

As part of the preparations for our home schooling adventure, I compiled a huge list of activities for kids in Ho Chi Minh City. I’ll be updating it regularly as things really do change fast here.

Oh, and by the way, if you know of any teachers who’d like a nine-month adventure in Ho Chi Minh City, let me know!
