Favorite character to draw/write about so far: Bunny Lilka from Soldier Evolution Revolutionary Girl

Things I worry about in Writing: I generalize things a lot instead of being more specific, and I have a tendency to describe unnecessary things, like clothes my characters are wearing. Gotta get to the bare minimum and move on with the story.

Inspirations for writing & drawing: Takeuchi Naoko, Tanemura Arina, & Ann M. Martin Thing I want to do right now: Read a blog & eat tons of food.

In today’s technology-obsessed world, parents often spend more time staring into screens than they do into their children’s precious faces. Time and again, my family has found that an exceptional remedy for these everyday distractions- one that promotes family bonding and enjoyment- is loading up the minivan and heading out on the open road.

As a travel writer, I’m blessed to have a career in which my homeschooled children can enthusiastically participate. We’re not locked down by a school calendar, so I’m free to take assignments all year, and the children enjoy accompanying me. While most of our trips involve a combination of work and pleasure, they ALL involve a great deal of learning. We don’t skip out on education when we’re on the road. I would venture to say that my children learn even more on the road than they do when locked into our routine at home.

But you don’t have to homeschool to embrace the educational opportunity of travel. Children enrolled in public and private schools enjoy the supplemental education that traveling provides on the weekends and during school breaks. Visiting historical sites and seeing artifacts up close and in person brings alive the content that students learn in school. And travel gives families who are locked into the rigor of a school schedule the opportunity to unwind and spend quality time learning together.
