Big Rocks First - welcome to 2023
We have a massive responsibility to each other, enormous. It becomes self-evident when we have children that we need to care for them and do our best to make life beautiful for them, but when all comes to all, we have the same responsibility for everyone else as well.
Are you happy?
Sharing our take on happiness, finding the good life balances, the ways we balance an ever-changing life, and the story of how we attended a great festival in Germany for home-educating families. Read on to learn our thoughts on routines on the road, lovely gratefulness exercises, and how we handle some of the basics of practical life on the road.
The secret to good planning
How we did not travel to England and what happened instead. One of the hidden perks of being a full-time traveling family is that we learn to sharpen our WHY and HOW all the time. In this blogpost we share what we have learned about planning and handling plans that changes.
Chateau Jasmine and how to handle big dreams
“If your dreams do not scare you, they are not big enough.” This is such a powerful truth. I remember being so afraid of the bus, afraid of leaving my country, afraid of letting go - yet the dream was powerful; I had to do it.
Unschooling is just life
Unschooling is just a fancy word for living, said a meme I saw on social media this week. It is true. Another, longer, a post I read was about how ambitious we can all become while following each other's unschooling journeys on blogs and social media.
Beauty is down the road
Just a short reflection on the importance of mindset

Do nomads have a social life?
Do you have any friends? This is one of the all times most asked questions we get as a full-time traveling family. In this text, we share the answers and perspectives on the idea of having a social life on the move. We would never have imagined this reality before we left, but now it is our everyday life of adventure.
Do you know how to stay with your own truth?
Sometimes I “download” something. A clear message. Sometimes it is more powerful and clear than others. Often I ask for it, rarely does it make its own way to my mind.
Are we rootless?
Do we need to have a house, a base, somewhere to call home? Will it take too much toll on the children to keep moving? Is it good for us?
You never regret the changes of the sunset
“Mom, you never regret the changes of the sunset. You enjoy the sunset. But you don’t want it to be the same all the time. Then it would not be a sunset, would it?”
Do we have to read Shakespeare?
"I feel sorry for people who never read Shakespeare", my 15-year-old son told me one late night in the darkness and the tiredness after just another of the many parties we attend while visiting our home country.
Are You Always Busy?
Life is in the moment of the things we do. Whether we are studying a language or talking to a friend, or going for a walk, the most important is not to have a mind full of all the things we are not doing in this present moment.
Unschooling is about freedom
Letting go of control and ambition is not letting go of presence and enthusiasm. We trust the flow of life, the joy of learning, the natural curiosity everyone possesses and do not plan a curriculum for our children.
If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales
Einstein apparently said the following. “If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”
Education and learning cannot be stopped
Education and learning is an intrinsic element of human life, can not be stopped, and institutions are not necessary for children to get good educations. The world would be a better place without compulsory schooling.
How to make dreams come true
We left a wonderful lifestyle in a beautiful city to get an adventurous lifestyle based on traveling, unschooling, community, and our open hearts to the cosmos. It has been magic, and it still is. We are very grateful for the freedom and the love.
The unschooling perspective on education
So, we unschool. We believe in personal growth and educating yourself. Education should be voluntary and self-directed. Motivation is the key factor in learning.
How to get Independent children
From personal freedom grows independent persons. Children need the right to pursue their own path in life.
What we learn from fear - The nomadic blessing of the moment
We do not act on fear. But we listen. Fear can be a good signal, an alarm bell, so we can listen to it and asks: what do I need to learn here?
