Manti-Ravioli,Yoghurt & Olive Oil-  Red Basilica Cafe & Otel, Bergama, Turkey

Manti-Ravioli,Yoghurt & Olive Oil- Red Basilica Cafe & Otel, Bergama, Turkey

All of this learning magic was made possible because of Fatih at The Red Basilica Hotel who was kind enough to host us for two nights and Izim at SmallHotels.com.tr who was insane enough to coordinate for us a 5-week tour with the Small Hotels across Turkey. We could never say thank you enough to those who believe in us enough to say, “Yes, come, child. I will invest in your dream,” and to Fatih for believing that man is man (regardless of the flag and what governments try to teach us) and that love is love (regardless of where you come from). Fatih, as a retired international basketball referee who had visited Israel many times, reignited in us a passion for sports which we converted into buying a skateboard and soccer ball in Bergama and using with great family passion. YOu can find them on Facebook here and see our arrival Facebook album here. Should you come to Bergama, we truly hope you stay at the Red Basilica Hotel with...

Most Magical Place on the Planet- Cappadocia, Turkey- RTW Nomadic Family Travel Question #29

Most Magical Place on the Planet- Cappadocia, Turkey- RTW Nomadic Family Travel Question #29

After three and half year globetrotting, it’s a huge honor to sit back, sigh, and reflect. There were moments that sucked beyond comprehension, moments where I wanted to crawl into fetal position and be ‘home’ (whatever that really means); and there were moments when I raised my hands to the heavens or hugged my kids and Kobi even closer still, and thanked God/the fairies/the stars for our unreal fortune and luck to have been able to have had just that moment. We grew so close, fell apart, witnessed, cried, laughed, got lost and found in seventeen lands and always still in the chamber of our own souls. And sometimes, we’re asked THE question, the one that take my breath away- where was your favorite place in the world, which is evergreen bittersweet for there is something unquenchably romantic about the longing of the human heart, and how, no matter how wonderful it was, or how it could never be that again, or even no matter how remarkable the Now...

Worldschooling Education- When Parents Abuse Their Kids and Kids Learn Irrelevant Stuff [Video Montage]

Worldschooling Education- When Parents Abuse Their Kids and Kids Learn Irrelevant Stuff [Video Montage]

People sometimes assume that we are abusing our children [Do not read if you don’t feel like an elevated heart rate]. Some think we are in a never-ending mid-life crisis in which we are dragging our poor children around the globe (with nothing to do all day) with no end in sight. We actually have concrete evidence of the abuse and, on most days, we feel like we’re doing a pretty good job teaching our kids too much about sex, how to hate missionaries, and how to leave your mess for other people to clean up for you. We’re also keen on the lessons they’ve learned about how to be unmanly, how to fit into the hood, and how to take risks that almost kill you that maybe you shouldn’t have. But after all the dramatic stuff there is a lot of learning that takes place in living like a local, knowing nothing, and  hating this home and that one. Some learning take place in the quiet crevices of...
