Working your Way around the world with kids
We have 2 school children 8 and 10 that we would have to 'road school' and plan to start out by going to Greece where we have Greek relatives to visit and then move onto countries like maybe Turkey using places like Wwoofing and workaway to help keep down expenses and really get to know the culture. We would eventually end up in SEA and I already have a BS and plan to get certified in TEFL and settle in to work for a bit and then figure the next out from there. Problem is, we won't really have anything to come 'home' to in the US other than starting over so the cycle might just continue as our new mobile lifestyle!
This is very very preliminary so any thoughts, critiques, ideas, websites and opinions would gladly be welcomed! We want so badly to take the leap but do not want to fall flat!!!
My husband had a rewarding job to return to - if he had not, we would have been excited at the prospect of spending time elsewhere teaching and living. In fact the very day he went back to work there was a job offer in his inbox for a two year position in Istanbul where we had just returned from. It was tempting, but he had just accepted a new position at home and wanted to proceed with that. We had originally planned to only travel for a year, but once we were enjoying life on the road hubby applied for an extension to his Leave Without Pay and was granted an extra three months with the condition that he then return! The thought of moving indefinitely would be very attractive to me. Even with kids. I'd encourage you to go for it.
