Hi and welcome to CaringBees.com!!!! Thank you SO much for joining/following our exciting family travel adventure!
So, you are probably wondering:
“Who, what, when, where, why and how is this family traveling?”, right?
Well, the actual question I ask back to you is: “Do you want the short or the long version?”
Here is the short version, sort of:
Let me introduce you to the adventure team:
Fritz – our team spirit
Terra – our motivator
Ky – our researcher
Kai – our marketing guru
Caring Bees was created because our family is passionate about our health and discovered Manuka honey, specifically, to have amazing versatile natural caring/healing properties, above most other foods and herbs! Also, we have great concerns about the future of our lovely bees and would like to look deeper into this issue, find out what we can do to help and share with the world!
When & where?
Now, 2015-16! To New Zealand, Australia, Fiji then who knows where else!!!
Bees are the most important insect in the world. If they die, we will be left to manually pollinate everything, in order to survive. Our goal is to bring awareness to this utmost important issue and also research ways each and every one of us could help around the world!
As for personally, we do not want to live with regrets. The timing is right for us and we feel, if we do not take the opportunity now, we might not have the chance to do so in the future.
And what are you going to do after that? Well, the future always brings opportunities, so we are excited for all of the possibilities! Worst case scenario, after our great adventure, we could come back and start over. 🙂 We would rather live with having an amazing experience traveling, learning and educating the world and coming back broke, than to watch the days pass by, wishing we had tried.
Selling our “stuff”, will give us the money needed to get going. We will also be looking for online ways to create additional income and sponsorships, to continue our work of learning and spreading the word about the delicate bees.
The longer additional version:
– Ever since I was a young child, I dreamed of traveling the oceans, like Jacque Cousteau. I am a huge advocate of making childhood dreams and passions come true (my Uncle tells me, all of the time, I need to be a motivational speaker).
– We would like our children to experience other cultures and to further their understanding of the world.
– I would love for my husband to have a break from overworking and spend more time with the kids. He has longed for this, since they were born.
– And, one of the biggest issues affecting all living things seriously needs our attention…our planet’s bees…
What about the kid’s schooling? The answer is: homeschooling.
Homeschooling allows us the freedom to travel, yet gives an opportunity for the kids to learn in a larger platform environment. More on homeschooling in future posts 🙂
I hope this gives you a well rounded sense of the who, what, when, where, why and how 🙂
Our next posts will document some of our steps taken to prepare for such a journey and how you might be able to use our experience for your family’s next adventure 😉
Give bees a chance…
