* We’re Debs and David with our two brilliant boys Daniel and Darley, aged five and three, plus Mr Colin Dog (a lively collie!) that loves travelling together and seeing our children learn by astonishment! We’re on a journey in our motorhome to visit people, places and things that have the wow factor and that will educate by astonishment. Sticking to the British National Curriculum subjects we see it as a fun way of learning – one that will be amazing, memorable and as exciting as anything on earth!
We’ll be donating to UNICEF for every astonishing person, place or thing we specifically set out to see. If you do something similar with your children, why not incorporate the life lesson that thinking of and giving to others is the best way of happy living.
* We’ll also be carrying on with our Face2Facebook Project when we pass close to friends and family. This all started when in autumn/winter 2014 we went on an adventurous challenge to Face2Facebook as many as possible of our friends and family who we’d not seen for too long. We downsized our house in order to help afford our lovely Swift Escape 696 motorhome – and then lived this excellent adventure to visit as many of these amazing people as possible.
For each person we visited we donated £2 to a cancer charity. We then put forward that person to “Face2Facebook” a friend or family member they’d not seen for at least a year, who they should do their best to visit within the next fortnight and show their support by continuing the £2 charity donation or forfeit at least £4.
For every person visited a face-to-face (or nose-to-nose!) photo was posted on this blog. (We think photos in sepia or mono work the best to give a nostalgic feel and stand out.) We hope this F2FB “friendship & family fiesta” will spread to do a whole lot of good – and make the world go round with love!
Special human bonds and relationships should be cherished. It’s what life is about.
