We thought it would be fun to ask some of our fellow family travelers about the amazing educational experiences they have had while traveling: we call it “Worldschooling Wednesday”.

Today’s featured bloggers for Worldschooling Wednesday:

Catherine, Richard, Lottie & Libby from Life In Our Van.
We highly recommend you check out their blog about exploring Europe in a motor home.


Ever wanted to pack your bags, jump in a motor home and go off and explore Europe as a family? Well that’s exactly what we (Catherine, Richard, Lottie & Libby) have done since September 2016.

Picture this. All your belongings safely stowed in the back of your mobile home. Imagine you sitting in the driver’s seat, with the kids in the back, ready and raring to go for yet another family adventure in your trusty motorhome….Our road trip really has become that adventure in every sense of the word, with every day full of surprises as we move from one location to another.


So although the idea of leaving it all behind and embarking on a family adventure around Europe might seem to some extraordinary…..I can safely say we are anything other than extraordinary. Just a normal family of 4  who decided to focus on educating our own children rather than others. So we’ve stopped teaching at schools in the UK, taken the plunge, and purchased a motor home. Traveling across 26 countries in Europe for the past 332 days! Hence the appropriately titled name for our blog ‘ LifeInOurVan’.


Homeschooling our children each week, whilst embracing new travel opportunities and growing together as a family. Each family adventure or experience faithfully recorded on our blog at Life in our Van. Now, every day brings a new outdoor classroom / playground / family adventure for our two wonderfully energetic and entertaining young daughters. As well as making you want to start your own road trip, we hope it’s also great for ideas for things to do with children across Europe.

  1. This is so cool!!!! How are the kids enjoying it? I always also wonder what about school, are kids being home schooled when they get to travel the world?
