In today’s episode of the Zero To Travel Podcast, we dive deep on the topic of learning through travel, Gap Year, career breaks, and beyond.
I had the pleasure of sitting down with Jennifer Miller, head editor at BootsnAll, project developer for the Travel Access Project, and the co-author of Bottles to Backpacks: The Gypsy Mama’s guide to REAL Travel With Kids.
The dominate theme was travel as a form of education (at any age), and the value of learning through roaming.
Is this the best way to learn? Should everyone travel for some period of time if it’s within their means? We dig into some tough questions and cover much more. Give this show a listen now!
