The winner of this giveaway was Allison who said, “All of the videos look amazing!! I think I’ll say Bali, though, because it’s one place I haven’t been yet! Great ideas in this post, too!”
THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED
I am thrilled that Angelina from The Little Travelers is our Guest Writer today.
Over the years I’ve been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel a bit and learn from many great teachers around the world. My intention for my blog is to share what I’ve learned in the realm of parenting and raising children. I hope that what you find here has as meaningful an impact on you and your families as it’s had on mine.
Learning about the world through food
One of my favorite ways to explore other cultures is through their food. If started when your children are young enough they will gladly join you in the journey. Remember, children eat what they’re used to eating. Indian children eat curry, Thai children eat Pad Thai and German children eat Schnitzel. If you only offer your children chicken fingers and carrots with ranch dressing they will likely turn their noses up to Persian stew. So start young and really stretch their pallets while they are malleable.
Join the Little Travelers as they find true paradise in one of the most magical islands on earth, Bali, Indonesia. On their journey they meet new friends, play in the rice fields, hunt for coconuts and run into a little monkey mischief. Start your adventure now!
Join the Little Travelers as they spend a week on a horse caravan in Ireland, hunt for Nessie, the Loch Ness monster in Scotland and visit the homes of Beatrix Potter in England. They also go to Knight’s school in Alwick castle, which was used as Hogwarts in the Harry Potter movies. You’ll not want to miss this one!
Join the Little Travelers as they travel to Japan and spend three months discovering the culture, food and customs, while making many new friends along the way. From trips to the market to a day in preschool, squat toilets to eating snails, their days are full of adventure. They meet monkeys and ninjas, dress up in kimono, and even take a Taiko drum class. Come discover Japan through the eyes of two young girls and be inspired to become a Little Traveler yourself.
