Our family has embarked on virtual travels to various countries and regions. To explore these countries and their cultures, we have followed along with the festivals, cooked and eaten traditional foods, learned of traditional handicrafts with hands on exploration, along with many activities to immerse ourselves. Chronicled here are some of these activities.

How Learning About Different Cultures Has Enriched Our Family Life with New Traditions

Having spent the last six years exploring and "virtually travelling" to various countries, our family has celebrated many a festival, and dipped our toes in various traditions. They have all been enjoyed, but there are a few that have become a part of our traditions, adopted or adapted, year after year. 
Multicultural Kid Blogs
You can read my post about which traditions we have embraced at Multicultural Kid Blogs, a website written by various, inspiring bloggers who are dedicated to raising world citizens. Along with the varied posts, with such a range of topics, you can find weekly menu plans, monthly blogging carnivals about various subjects related to multiculturalism, a resource page of the various blogs by topic, a bookclub, give aways, and more. I am grateful to be part of such a varied and supportive community. 


  1. I left a message by your post, but it was so lovely to learn more about you (yes, I know, I'm terribly nosy by nature!) and very interesting to hear about the other countries you have learnt about. Are you planning on posting about those in detail as well?

    1. You know, from the beginning I planned on posting about every country - I thought I'd have Greece up by march - and, obviously, I do not :) This is turning out to be more work than I expected - especially when juggling it with everything else. I am working on it though.


Thanks for stopping by to visit. Please feel free to leave a comment, it's lovely to hear from you!
