12 Jan Once a year.. at least!
At least once a year visit new places!
Meet the people. Learn.
This piece of advice should be taken literally. It’s so important for ourselves and for our children. They learn best by experience. They will remember what they’ve seen, what they’ve felt, what made them laugh or look in astonishment. No school book will ever be as effective.
What we see on TV or read in the newspaper is not enough to know a country and its people. We must go there ourselves. We’ll discover similarities and differences between our cultures. But we’ll find out that, in the end, the values we share are often the same.
Packing for a new trip, even the shortest one, always cheers me up!
I’m starting to plan my spring break 🙂 and you? Have you got any plans?
