One family's quest to learn together
We are Simon and Gina, and our two beautiful children Lucy (11) and Oscar (6). Our other website is Our Global Adventure. Over there we publish tips and tales from our quest to travel the world together. It’s the story of how we quit our jobs and school, sold out house and everything in it, to chase our dreams. This website is all about our unschool adventures, the day to day learning that we do together. Mostly, this space is for the kids to record their digital journal of Our Global Unschool Adventures, but mum and dad have got some stuff to say as well.
Simon is a Tradesman (Fitter and Turner) turned IT Support Officer, then Recruitment Operations Manager, and long-term logical thinking, problem solver. Most of all though, he’s a dad and husband. Always fair, patient and kind, it takes a lot to rattle this man.
Gina is a School Teacher turned Cupcake Shop Owner and mum. She is the organised one, the dreamer and the one with her eye on the clock. Always flitting from one to the next, Gina is learning to slow down a little and focus on Homeschooling / Roadschooling Lucy and Oscar.
Lucy is a like her dad. Not much phases Lucy, and cool, calm and collected is the norm for her. Lucy is an avid reader and her favourite books of all time are the Harry Potter series and The Hunger Games. She is thoughtful, generous and kind and always ready with a warm hug.
Oscar is a little pocket rocket. He’s full of energy, spunk and charisma, (although cheeky comes to mind as well!). He is always switched on and alert, looking for mischief and confidently tackling new challenges. Oscar loves Star Wars and his big sister.
