Family Information:

We are Ricardo (49) and Monique (47).

We were born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela.

We have two kids: Sabrina (8) and Alexander (6).

We decided we want our children to get educated in a different way:

By getting immersed into the local culture, habits and language of the countries, villages an towns we plan to visit and /or live in.

Monique is kind of scared but excited at the same time.

Me? (Ricardo)

I'm thrilled!!

We're doing this because we want our kids to have an expanded vision of everything.

We want them to grow by accepting and embracing both changes and "the unknown".

We're doing this because Ricardo wish his parents would have done this when he was a kid (he wants to be able to wake up in the morning and go surfing nice waves :))

We're taking this leap to break with the paradigm we were raised with: "go to school, earn a degree, get a job, make money and save it so you can travel once a year"

Once a year!!!!

No way!!

We have a better plan for our kids...

We believe life is more than just going to a classroom (to learn?) and then making money (working for others or for yourself) just for buying things. We prefer "invest" our money by living the life with our kids, meaning, watching - first-hand -other countries' people and nature, discovering new places, speaking other languages, tasting all types of food, breathing the air of other villages, running, jogging, surfing, playing music, free diving, scuba diving, snorkeling, etc.

We do believe life is about doing a lot things and experiencing success and failure by discovering the world as we discover the greatness within ourselves.

We decided it's way better to send our kids to the world instead of just sending them to school...
