I thought quite a bit about this week’s Gallery theme, “Education”, and decided to go down the non-school route for it.
Of course academic learning is important, and having lived in Switzerland and now in Germany, we are lucky that the “free” schools offer very good education leading to a wide range of possible careers and professional prospects.
But for me discovering the world was always as important as doing well at school. Exploring new countries, coming across different cultures, tasting exotic foods, having to compose with new languages – so far my kids speak three – or simply dealing with the myriad of situations that can occur during a trip, all these aspects give children and us adults endless opportunities to learn and expand our minds.
So let’s hop on that plane, train, car or boat!
