We have dreamed, hoped, planned to be able to take our family overseas on a learning adventure for many many years. The time has finally come.
On Christmas Day part of our gift to the children was to tell them of our plan and to invite them to join in with planning where we go and what we see.
We set aside a day to talk and dream. We had asked the kids a few years back where they would like to go and the general consensus was Turkey and Italy but when we asked them this year they all said England. All of them!!! They then asked me where I’d like to go and I said, Turkey and Italy (since that is where my heart had been thinking for some time) and they all responded – “Oh, yes, let’s go there” and on they prattled about why they would like to go there.
Of course cost is always a factor and we discussed that everything was in dreaming stage until we received a quote. In the meantime we needed to know what type of thing did we think Turkey, Italy and even England had that we would be interested in. Historical ruins and art where our strongest themes until Grandad reminded us that we were very focused on man’s creation and he was surprised we were ignoring God’s creation. We took that on board and have since tried to balance both.

This is a family blog, where each one will contribute every so often (especially once we get travelling) so we hope you’ll join us on our learning adventure.
