I’ve always loved to travel and have lived, worked and studied in several different countries. When my husband and I had children, we decided to settle down for a while as a family, albeit in a foreign country (my children were born in Spain and spent their early years there). I kept thinking about how great it would be to travel with the children, home-school them and raise them as global citizens. When they were eight and ten, we took them out of school to go traveling for a year or so. That was about five years ago and we are still living the digital nomad lifestyle now.
Our lifestyle has given us tremendous freedom as a family, and allowed our children to have experiences they just couldn’t have through short-term travel. I wrote about the advantages of being a digital nomad family, in this article The Educational Value of Long Term Travel With Kids.
