Hi, and welcome to The Wandering Daughter. I’m Astrid, a travel-loving mom and a passionate advocate for worldschooling. I’ve been slow-traveling around the world with my family since 2018, and I love learning about the world with my kids. (You can read more about me here)

If you’re new to the concept of worldschooling, it’s essentially using the world as your classroom!

This blog is dedicated to helping families, like you, experience travel in an educational and transformative way. I also want to help you travel in this world more sustainably and responsibly.

By doing this, we’re ensuring that future generations can reap the benefits of travel as well!
