  1. Great list! We moved to Germany last year, and have travelled to a few different countries in Europe since then. I find that not only were my children not really aware of different cultures and ways of the world, but neither was I! I think it’s very important for everyone (not just kids) to learn that their country/culture isn’t always the “best” or only way of doing things! 🙂

  2. Arrrrrrgh! I am not able to pin your facebook posts from my iPad. and I really, really want to be able to do that. This is the third time in a couple of weeks, which means you’re posting WONDERFUL STUFF!

    Thank you! I appreciate all the hard work that goes into your blog.

  3. Love this. One thing I would want my child to be is articulate and worldy as I see too many uncultured people around. haha
