So you want to be a confident world traveller too?

Great! The right frame of mind is the best start. We know leaving your everyday family comfort zone isn’t easy.  We know not all travel or holiday experiences will suit all families, just as no one expatriate posting or living experience can compare to another. Through a combination of our own travel stories, guest blogging contributions and interviews with fellow expatriates and travelling parents we aim to be your go-to resource for tackling overseas adventures as a family.

You can learn more here about the blogger behind the Globetrotters Keri Hedrick – as well as the kids that have helped make this story possible – these are Our Globetrotters.
