70 - Growing Up in Different Cultures The Thoughtful Travel Podcast

How does growing up as part of several different cultures change you as a person? Or growing up in many different countries? These questions fascinate me and in Episode 70 of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast I speak with two travellers who have experience with these particular questions. First up, I chat with Leah Smileski who recently took her children to spend a couple of months in Macedonia, where their father was born. This was quite a challenge for Leah who doesn’t speak Macedonian, but we talked a lot about all the benefits for her kids and it was fascinating. Secondly, I talk with Jo Castro, who’s the epitome of a wandering ex-pat - moving to rural Nepal with a newborn baby a couple of decades ago! She and her family, including two now adult children, lived in many different places around the world and she has much to say about how this has affected them, in both good ways and bad. Links:Leah’s blog Kid Bucket List - https://kidbucketlist.com.auJo’s website Lifestyle Fifty - http://lifestylefifty.com/Jo’s travel blog Zigazag - http://zigazag.com/Join our Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/thoughtfultravellersTweet me @amandakendleHashtag #thoughtfultravelpodFollow me on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/NotABallerina   Show notes: http://notaballerina.com/70
