Here We Are & There We Go – Teaching and Traveling with Kids in Tow
Here We Are & There We Go – Teaching and Traveling with Kids in Tow by Jill Dobbe
Non-Fiction – Travel – Memoir
A heartwarming travel memoir filled with temper tantrums,disorienting jetlag, and zany, once-in-a-lifetime family adventures.
Who says you can’t travel with kids? Dan and I find out we can do just that as we set off with our two very young kids, first to live and work on an island far out in the Pacific, then on to the continent of Africa with a few stops in between. Armed with strollers, diapers, and too much luggage, we travel to over 25 countries throughout a 10-year span, while working together as overseas educators.
After surviving typhoon Yuri, almost being mauled by lions, and, nearly being shot by a presidential guard, we happily endure all of the good times and bad, while living life to the fullest. A decade’s worth of experiences and lifelong memories remain with us, as we return to the U.S., now with two teenagers in tow, and begin to experience our very own version of reverse culture shock.
Since writing her first memoir about her travels, Jill has lived in Cairo, Egypt; Gurgaon, India; and Tegucigalpa, Honduras, where she now resides with her husband, Dan.
