Homeschooling Snapshots, I Hate Homeschooling, and If I were President of the World- Our Istanbul Apartment, Holiday Lettings Pashas House, Istanbul, Turkey
We are ying and yang. We always have been. One minute happy, one minute ready to die. One minute overjoyed to be out there, seeing the world; one minute, wishing it would all go away and I can curl up into some tiny nest in a cave. Alone. And yet, still the road is just a great classroom, forcing us to be open to that Which We Are and not escape it with busy-ness.
It’s a classroom for our soul, our family dynamics, our lives; and, a classroom classroom where we try (sometimes successfully) to teach our kids a RRR education. Some moments we’re on high, all dancing in the rays of doing it right; sometimes, we’re all choking and knowing that there is no point at all to pulling teeth, hair, and each others’ nerves.
Here are a few of glimpses into both worlds, all in the same tiny nest at Holiday Lettings Pashas House in Istanbul, Turkey.

I Hate Homeschooling and Men Who Makes Salads
Do you home school? Do you wish you did? Are you glad you don’t? Ever feel the ying yang of emotional roller coaster existence?
You can see our first Turkish home with Holiday Lettings Pashas House for yourself. And… ARE YOU READY?
Owner Barbaros was so delighted by the way we lead our life and inspire others and was so overjoyed to be a part of that magic that he said anyone who contacts him and says they came because of The Nomadic Family, he’ll give them 20% off their rental. God, how did we find these angels.
So, we have nothing but ‘thank you’s’ and admiration for our new Turkish friends who hosted us so remarkably. Should you be in Istanbul and desire to feel that magic, go to Holiday Lettings Pashas House and when you communicate with Barbaros let him know that you know us and he’ll set you up. Life really is good.

About the Author:
Insanely unorthodox, embarrassingly honest, and on her path towards spiritual awareness, Gabi Klaf blogs about her family’s ups and downs in their now third year of non-stop budget world travel. This family of five has lived with an indigenous tribe in the jungles of Ecuador, hitchhiked throughout the world, danced with drunk Vietnamese at weddings, and hiked the entire Annapurna Circuit trek where a film crew accompanied them for the documentary movie about how The Nomadic Family is redefining modern family life. They are now spending six months in Goa, India. Gabi writes about the untold sides of family travel life, those moments that take your breath away, adventures and mishaps while globetrotting, and how bits of her soul remain in this small town and off the side of that river. She is a guitar-stumming, energy-healing, ADHD wind-loving scaredy cat. Hugely romantic, tantalizingly sweet, and hysterically funny, Gabi Klaf represents a rare Rubik’s Cube of family world adventure.
We’re out doing crazy stuff and making our dreams come true, every single one of them, and a few more that sort of flew into our mouths while we were smiling into the wind.
