Europe Tour

There’s a reason I haven’t blogged for a while. We’ve been in Europe! I’m sure the coolest-ever way to homeschool is travelling! History, religion, social studies, LOTE, maths, english, life skills and so much more! It’s all there.

We started with half of the family in Ireland for one week and then met the other half of the family in Holland where we spent our second week. We have Dutch rellies so it was big fun to hang out with them, speak some Dutch, eat great food and explore this country.

From Holland we took a train to Switzerland. We climbed mountains, hung out with some awesome nuns in a remote town, did a tour of a chocolate factory and visited the Freddie Mercury statue. (Professor Daddy is a huge fan).

After Switzerland, we caught the train to Rome. Another week was spent discovering this amazing city. History really comes to life in Rome. We stood on the steps of the Pantheon where Julius Caesar was murdered, we visited Vatican City and marvelled at the genius of Michael Angelo, and we ate our fair share of pasta! We had a day trip to Pisa and another day trip to Pompeii. Both incredibly beautiful.

Then it was onto Monaco where we only had one day. It was far too short but we enjoyed every minute of it. We walked along their stunning beaches, did a bus tour to see all of it’s most famous parts and checked out the million-dollar yachts!

From there we went by train to Barcelona. Another week, another extraordinary city. Some highlights were the Magic Fountain, Mont Serrat, everything Gaudi and sailing around the coast in a catamaran.

Our holiday ended with us getting a train to Paris where we spent our last 5 days. Sacre Coeur, the Eiffel Tower, Monet’s Garden and Euro Disney. It’s possible we’ve had just too much fun!

Now it’s back to life in Melbourne which we are so grateful for. Australia is still very much the Lucky Country. We have so much space, so much wealth, so much work for those who want it, and so many opportunities. Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Oi, Oi, Oi!

Live, Love and Learn,

The Clarabel College Conglomerate
