From the Conde Nast Website:
Today's the start of the trip of a lifetime for single mom Sue Sandford of Dallas, Texas, and her four children. They're about to spend a year traveling through Russia, Germany, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Austria, Italy, Spain, Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Jordan, Israel, South Africa, Kenya, Ethiopia, Dubai, India, Nepal, Bhutan, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Singapore, Bali, Japan, Korea, China, Australia, New Zealand, Tahiti, Chile, Peru, and Ecuador -- at minimum -- and will be touching back down in Dallas on July 31, 2010.
Sue's calling the trip "World School." That's because it's not a vacation: It's an education. Sue feels, as many of us traveling moms and dads do, that there's no better education--or incubator of global citizenship--than travel. Sue and her kids will be spending much of their time in each country visiting schools, befriending the local children, and getting their hands dirty helping with community projects.
Take that public school!
(Hmm...wonder how the dad feels about all this?)
