Äiti irtisanoutui ja lähti matkustelemaan tyttärensä kanssa

Koti & Asuminen Matkailu · Terhi Piiroinen

On sanottu, että lapset oppivat parhaiten asioita näkemällä ja kokemalla. Tenavat voivat nähdä kirjoista tai ruuduilta muista kansakunnista ja kulttuureista, mutta vasta matkustelun avulla he voivat hahmottaa maapalloa ja sen monimuotoisuutta. Evie-niminen äiti halusi, että hänen tyttärensä voi kokea mahdollisimman paljon.

Evie menetti läheisen ystävänsä. Nainen ymmärsi, että elämä on liian lyhyt paikallaan olemiseen. Hän lopetti työnä ja päätti käyttää kaikki säästönsä matkusteluun. Mukaan lähti myös kouluikäinen tytär. Kaksikko on sittemmin matkustanut ympäri maailmaa, mutta eniten Aasiassa. He päivittävät kuulumisiaan suosittuun Mumpack Travel -blogiin.

Daily Mail on koonnut kaksikon julkaisemista kuvista ja videoista koosteen Facebookiin. Monille vanhemmille inspiraationa toimiva nainen on onnistunut yhdistämään lapsensa kasvattamisen ja matkustelun kadehdittavan ihailtavasti. Tytär käy koulua siellä, missä perhe matkaa. Heillä ei ole ainakaan vielä suunnitelmia kotiinpaluusta ja tasaisemman arjen aloittamisesta.

We are having a home day today in the nice warm apartment, I am trying to do a HIT workout after months of inactivity ? in front of one amused and critical child, a perplexed dog and disinterested cat. The rest of the day is for lazing. I love homedays! ? This is one of my favourite piccies of me and a Emmie from our adventures, and it was taken in China just a few months ago. Like most mums I don't have a lot of pics of us together but there are a bunch of hideous selfies that we just keep on the phone for us. Anyway this pic was taken at the incredible Jiuzhaigou National Park, about eight hours north of Chengdu by bus. The lakes here are deep and blue and crystal clear and the forest and sky is reflected in it like in a mirror. We had a great time with a bunch of people we met from the hostel and traveled on a crazy bus ride with (the guide kept screaming down a microphone and every time we stopped I would pull the cord out haha) – Malgorzata from Poland, Nata a Russian model and your typical fabulous Israeli man, Daniel – active, fun and athletic. We had a ball together and donning these Tibetan costumes for a pic was a nice rest from hiking ??? . . . . . #gltlove #traveltime #traveltheworld #openmyworld #familyfun #escape #besttimes #funtimes #worldschooling #travelfam #travelwithkids #familytravel #famtravel #kidstravel #travelkids #holidayswithkids #takemethere #instagood #travelgram #travelbuddy #traveldiary #instapassport y#chinatravel #mytravelgram #ouradventure #worldschooling #lpkids #travelmum #roamfree #mytravelbuddy

This time last year I had just finished work after resigning and was packing up the house for our trip. It's almost a year since we left Sydney and it's scary how fast the time has gone. Our plan was for a year of travel, but that's just not long enough so we're staying away til June now ?? The past 11 months seem like a dream, it's just flown past us. I honestly can't believe how fast it's gone. This pic is from our first stop on 1 Feb – Cebu in the Philippines and our stay at the awesome Shangri-La Mactan. I got Emmie up for some early morning sunrise shots…she wasn't too happy ? Of course we had to start our trip with some luxe and a good rest after the chaos of packing up and leaving!! ??⭐️ it was such a fab way to begin, and one of the best resorts we've stayed at ? . . . . . . . . . #shangrila #shangrilamactan #cebu #itsmorefuninthephilippines #travelwithkids #luxe #beachside #sunrise #bestsunrise #instanature #mornings #bestmorning #travellingdestinations #mybestfriend #loveshangrila #explorerkids #travelwithkids #traveldiary #tinytravels #holidaywithkids #luxurytravel #traveldiaries #escapesnaps #wearetravelmums #instagood #holidayswithkids #traveltheworld #instagold #mysomewhere #opentheworld

Even though a bat pooed on me last night and I am slightly hungover I am so happy and relaxed and loving life after our super 10 days on the island ? It kind of broke the bank – we were supposed to only stay four nights – but Emmie was so happy with her little friends that it was worth every extra US dollar (and there were lots of them)!! We caught the boat back over to Sihanoukville this morning and take a bus up to Phnom Penh in two hours…tomorrow – China! ??? . . . . . . . . . #cambodia #kohrong #visitcambodia #explorerkids #khmer #kohrongsamloem #lovecambodia #beach #travelwithkids #traveldiaries #littlestepsasia #tinytravels #holidaywithkids #luxurytravel #lazybeach #traveldiaries #escapesnaps #wearetravelmums #beachtime #paradise #traveltheworld #traveldeeper #traveljunkie #bestplaceonearth #travelcambodia #travelblog #cambodiawithkids #lonelyplanet #mysomewhere #opentheworld

I'm going through photos to share with the Morning Show on Channel 7 for our chat next Tuesday eeeek! We can do this! It's exciting, and Emmie will be there to control the action ??. This is the pic I mentioned when I posted the kangaroo selfie a while ago – Emmie showing the roo and getting her approval before sharing the selfie on social media. ??? Good manners Emmie! . . . . . . . . #sydney #australia #kangaroo #roo #ilovesydney #symbio #nature #wanderlust #kangarooselfie #lovesydney #explorerkids #wildling #traveldiaries #wildlife #wanderlust #mytinyatlas #funtimes #friends #happydays #bestdays #escapetravel #holidayswithkids #wearetravelmums #familyjaunts #traveltheworld #instanature #mygirl #loveher

Here's one of my fave pics from our last trip to China in June – we camped overnight in the Great Wall of China and it's one of my most treasured memories from this trip so far ??? [even though as usual I carried all the bags with Emmie running ahead impatiently yelling 'come on, mum' as I staggered behind] ? ? We leave China tomorrow for Hoi An, and we should be at a hotel in Shanghai right now but I stuffed up – I knew I should have grabbed train tickets before today but I left it to chance and whoops – we trudged out to the station at lunch time carrying the backpack and bags of Emmie's Christmas presents, all ready to go and… uh oh no seats til 10pm tonight…so we are still in Wuxi, back at the house-sit. Emmie is ecstatic she gets to watch more episodes of Ever After High on Netflix and I'm just biding time and checking tomorrow's flight details so I don't mess those up too! Train trip then a cross city taxi and a few hours at the airport Starbucks til morning and our first flight of the day ?? ? Thanks so much for all the supportive comments after yesterday's story! I love our community here and how kind and encouraging everyone is to each other. I was surprised at the nasty comments online but that's prob because I'm so used to being here and chatting to everyone and just being in a really nice place. So thanks everyone for making it so awesome here ??✨??? . . . . . . #greatwall #greatwallofchina #beijing #china #greatwallcamping #lonelyplanet #lpkids #mysomewhere #goeverywhere #openmyworld #travelwithkids #travelmum #travelbuddy #chinaholiday #instanature #climbing #travelchina #mytravelgram #traveladdict #chinacamping #chinagreatwall #explorerkids #travelwithkids #lovechina #chinahiking #familytravel #travelgram #visitchina #familyfun #hwk50th

Watching the sunset on Koh Rong Samloem right before Emmie became overconfident and hit the deck. ? My preferences of surfaces for head and body landings: 1️⃣ Sand (hopefully a soft landing) 2️⃣ Wood (heads bounce) 3️⃣ Ceramic (never; heads crack). ? She got wood and sand on this one. The best two out of three – way to go Emmie ??? . . . . . . . . #cambodia #kohrongsamloem #visitcambodia #explorerkids #khmer #lazybeach #lovecambodia #kohrong #travelwithkids #traveldiaries #littlestepsasia #tinytravels #holidaywithkids #luxurytravel #beach #traveldiaries #escapesnaps #wearetravelmums #sunset #kohrong #traveltheworld #traveldeeper #traveljunkie #beachtime #instasunset #travelblog #mysomewhere #kathmandu

✨UPDATE: OMG the GoPro has come home ✨ I've had a shitty day and I'm so annoyed and grumpy. I tried to start my Mac this morning and it's totally dead. I'm over this stupid computer. It's just over a year old and I've had to pay for two hardware fixes, its wifi card is broken (I'm using a USB wifi ATM) and it's now dead. And Apple agrees it's a dud but will only replace it if I go back to Australia. Thanks so much @apple_macbook_air ? Then we went on our El Nido island hopping tour ?⛈ and I lost my GoPro in the Small Lagoon ?. It must have slipped off my kayak and floated away. So now that's gone and I haven't downloaded any pics from it [I am scared someone will find it and do one of those Facebook searches with pics from it and use the ones of me in my bikini on the rope swing – so I guess things could get worse?] So I have no GoPro and no photos and no computer. I will have to buy a new GoPro (with what??) and I have no idea what to do with my Mac. ??? ✨but I also know how fortunate we are and this is just a shitty day and everything will be fixed so it will be all good tomorrow ??? . . . . . . . #cebupacificair #soulofthephilippines #philippines #elnido #palawan #itsmorefuninthephilippines #travelph #bummer #lostgopro #travelwithkids #traveldiaries #jetsetkids #tinytravels #holidaywithkids #luxurytravel #travelstoke #palawan #philippinesphotocontest #visitphilippines #shittyday #traveldiaries #mysomewhere #escapesnaps #wearetravelmums #cebtravels #loveph #traveltheworld #traveldeeper #mysmilesnap

Jiuzhaigou is one of our most favourite places in China – I think this visit kicked off my current obsession with lakes. The water here is clear, blue and still and surrounded by gorgeous green forest – and it's said the last wild pandas live here too. ? This year I discovered how truly beautiful China is, I really wasn't expecting anything like the nature we found here. It's so stunning. ? Has anywhere you've visited really surprised you for being so much more than you thought it would be? . . . . . #jiuzhaigou #instanature #china #mytravelgram #travelwithkids #travelgram #mypassport #kidstravel #travelmum #familytravel #instagram #instatravel #visitchina #instanature #seechina #aussiemum #funtimes #kidsadventure #lpkids #travellingdestinations #travelchina #chinatravel #bringthekids #lake #beautifulnature #worldschool #kidstravel #LOVES_CHINA

It's raining in Wuxi, China so we are mall hanging…but this mall is like a fun park! Emmie has just finished rock climbing, next up she is on the trampoline and later we're going to ice-skate. Of course this isn't Wuxi ?, it's one of our favourite places – Malaysian Borneo ??. We spent a lot of time there this year spotting wildlife, meeting local people, trekking in the jungles and swimming on untouched beaches. We also met Emmie's dad on Mabul Island off the east coast of Sabah. Mabul has crystal clear waters and beautiful corals and fish and turtles, and is home to the Bajau Laut people. Bajau are thought to have originated in the Philippines but until recently lived on the sea, and are known as Sea Gypsies. Many now live on land in shanty villages and crave being back on the water. Their lives are not easy as they are stateless and rely on local governments turning a blind eye to their communities on islands and coastlines. We were privileged to spend time with many of the Bajau on Mabul and I'll post my fave pic soon. In the meantime, this is Em just floating around after a big snorkel session out in the Celebes Sea. . . . . . . . . #gltlove #traveltime #traveltheworld #openmyworld #familyfun #escape #besttimes #funtimes #worldschooling #travelfam #travelwithkids #familytravel #famtravel #kidstravel #travelkids #holidayswithkids #takemethere #instagood #travelgram #travelbuddy #traveldiary #instapassport y#chinatravel #mytravelgram #ouradventure #worldschooling #lpkids #travelmum #roamfree #mytravelbuddy
