Natural learning + learning about nature
On this blog, we’ve written extensively about following our interests as the foundation of my son’s education (natural learning + unschooling).

Miro and I are both gifted with a natural curiosity which keeps us asking why, where and how? As a result, we are both committed to perusing knowledge based on the constant stream of inquiry inspired through every new experience.

The Qoyllur Rit’i festival is one of the oldest indigenous festivals on the planet.
Translated as the Star Snow Festival, Qoyllur Rit’i is a spiritual and religious event, held annually in June, in the Sinakara Valley in the Cusco Region of Peru. Every year, more than 10,000 participants attend the festival strengthening their ties to their ancestors, ancient traditions and cultural connections.

Robert was my partner for my baby care class in early 1999 before Miro was born. I was as big as a house with less than six weeks of pregnancy left. And I was very newly single.
I had no idea what I was in for, but at that point, there was no turning back. So, never having held a baby before in my life before Miro, I enrolled myself in baby-care classes.
We sat in class together, laughing, putting diapers backwards on a stained baby doll, engaging in talc powder fights and …
“Where has been your favorite place to travel so far?” we are often asked.
The answer comes quickly and intuitively.. but I wait….
“We are travelers,” I say….
But aren’t we all, traveling through life, I think? Only some of us choose to expand our experiences by seeing the world.
