Little Susy is six years old. Should she read and write?



When little Susy came into this world, she learned to sit, walk, and speak naturally. Why would learning to write and read be any different?


Today. A tropical beach in the South of Thailand. ‘How do I write sun, mommy?’. I lean over to kiss her salty forehead. With a piece of sea-shell I write the word sun in the hot Asian sand. Her eyes twinkle. With an unbridled enthusiasm she now wants to write down the whole alphabet. I smile. What a contrast to her older sisters. In her six years of age, Susy has never been to school. Instead, she has traveled around the world and turned this world into her home, playground and classroom.  Keep reading

The World as our Religion

Batu Balong Hindu Temple in Lombok, Indonesia

The reason I set off for a trip around the world, un-and worldschooling my children is to raise them with an open mind.

In this post I’ll tell you exactly how to turn your visa extension into a rather quick and pain-free, walk in the park experience! Keep reading

Getting Inked the Thai Way: The True Meaning of a Buddhist Sak Yant Tattoo

My daughter Silvana, Ajahn Mee, and me

I love tattoos and the way they decorate the body, male or female. For years, I contemplated on getting inked but never really braved up to the challenge. Add to that my indecisive nature, and at forty-two years old my body was still like a blank page desperately waiting for a story to be told. That is, until Buddhism and the magic of traditional Thai Sak Yant tattoos fluttered my way.  Keep reading

From infamous Visa Run to Family Fun! Crossing the Thai-Malaysian border

There’s an adventure in everything

We could have taken the easy route and pay 50 Dollars for a stamp, instead we undertook a ten hour journey to the border, and loved every single minute of it.

Crossing borders have never been, and probably never will be, my favorite pastime. Unfortunately, they are part of the word traveling life-style that is rapidly taking over the globe now.  Keep reading
