I read last night in another author’s book that you need at least a year to prepare for a family sabbatical abroad. Well…I guess we’re on the fast track. We will have had about 3 months to purge, pack and prepare for our sojourn. No wonder I’m a bit stressed. I don’t have much time to blog about this process, however I will be doing a one hour webinar through Melibee Global on Feb. 23. Click on the link to get the details. http://melibeeglobal.com/melibeeu-planning-a-family-sabbatical-abroad-february-23-2012/
My son Adam and I are working on setting up a family travel blog. Stay tuned! Its going to be chock full of articles, photos and videos about our travels -from 4 different perspectives-(Carrie; the mom, Bob; the dad, Adam; the 14-year-old son, and Benjamin; the 12-year-old son.) The website will be unveiled in a few weeks!
MelibeeU: Planning a Family Sabbatical Abroad (February 23, 2012)
If you have ever dreamed of picking up and moving your family abroad, for a year, to live and learn in another culture, this workshop is for you.
Carrie Wagner and her husband Bob had dreamed of a family sabbatical for years. For Carrie and her family, it’s a natural step on their path to global citizenship. Like any worthy endeavors, the experience will be transformative and invaluable.
When Carrie tells people that she and Bob are taking their two sons to South America for a year of exploration, immersion, and learning, many think they are a bit crazy! But there are others who understand that dream and think “I wish we could do that.” The good news is that you probably CAN with a little guidance!
In this one hour webinar, Carrie will take you through an inventory of questions that will help you determine whether a family sabbatical is right for you. She will share a preparation “to-do” list, considerations for travel, and a resource guide that is specifically geared for family trips, as well as answer your many questions! We hope you will join us for this informative session.
