Nicole of TravelLarge certainly does travel large – with her five children in tow. Her family is much like other families – a mom, a dad, the usual parenting challenges – but at the same time, her view of the world is wider, more encompassing, and more adventurous than most.
As a homeschooling mom, Nicole is the major player in getting her children to see themselves as citizens of the whole earth, to celebrate other cultures and above all, remain curious at all times about other people and places. To that end, she and her husband took the whole crew on a major world tour back in 2014, and now are making plans to head out again in the fall of 2017, this time to see new places in Asia, Africa, and Europe. In between, there have been plenty of challenges, including cancer, financial troubles, and the usual crazy, unexpected ups and downs of parenting five children. But through it all, Nicole has maintained her positive voice, her sunny way of looking at the world – and as a plus, she’s gathered a ton of great cost cutting measures and travel hacks that’s she’s more than happy to share.
Come and hear Nicole spread her inquisitiveness, thoughtfulness, and positive attitude to all at Blog Out Loud.
