This week, the family is taking over the Learning Across America blog. Each family member will be sharing their stories about our first year of full-time travel. Pull up a camp chair, and see what we’ve been up to.
A Year of Travel | Sophia’s Story:
Hi. I’m Sophia Godfrey and I am 12 years old (soon to be 13) and I am on a life changing adventure. On March 17, 2014 my family and I started traveling across America. Traveling isn’t always easy, it is often unpredictable, and sometimes scary or random, but that’s what makes it fun. You may think that your family will never get along in such a small space, but in truth it brings us closer together.
A big advantage of traveling is making new friends. You might think that moving around so much would prevent you from making friends, but really it makes it so you have more. We have made friends in about almost every state we’ve been in, and we keep making more each move.
Another advantage is sight-seeing. There are so many wonders in this country alone that you could be traveling your whole life and never have seen them all! National Parks are a great place to get started. National Parks are fun, informative, and they preserve natural resources.
My favorite state is Arkansas. It is very beautiful and lush. The people there are friendly and conversational. There are many landmarks such as Crater of Diamonds State Park, Buffalo National River, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, and much, much more. They even have their own sports hall of fame!
At first I wasn’t sure about traveling, but I’m glad we decided to. I have had so many amazing and awesome memories and have many more to make. I have gone so many places and done so many things. I am a visitor, staying neither here nor there. I am a sightseer, seeing the wonders of America. I am a wanderer, not knowing where I am going to go next. I am a passenger, riding on the train of adventure. I am a traveler.
