In Thailand, we met a French family of six, traveling by bicycle. Sometimes the logistics of travel can seem daunting, but for parents cycling with four kids (ages 5, 9, 11, and 13)?! We found it hard to imagine. So when we met with them again, we asked if we could travel with them for a day. I was impressed by this family, but after spending a full day with them, my admiration skyrocketed. In this photo we have stopped by the side of the road for some lunch on the way up to the Bolaven plateau. -w
Claire the amazing bicycle superhero pedals with us out of Pakse, Laos. We met 9-year old Claire and her family who have been traveling mostly by bicycle for the last 7 months. We were happy to have the opportunity to pedal with them and get a taste for life on the road with 4 kids. Henry and Isabella are giving their children a year that will shape them in unimaginable ways and it’s been a great inspiration for us to know them. Four months into their trip, Claire’s parents asked her what she had learned so far, she answered that she learned that she had the power to do it. Brava! -k.
