About Brittany

My name is Brittany and I’m the main author of the language education, travel, and international family-related information you’ll find on this website.

Here I share useful information about traveling (with kids!), slow travel, and raising bilingual kids.

I’m a CELTA-certified language educator with more than 10 years of experience in second-language acquisition in various capacities and I have a Master’s degree in Language and Literacy Education.

I grew up as an American military brat, moving around the world with my family. My most-recent hobbies include RAISING A NEW BABY, and striking a balance between adventuring and cozy-ing with my family!

You’ll also find other related topics on this website from my “previous life” such as our travel tips, inspiration, and information about working and studying abroad.

About Philippe

Phil mesmerizing us with a deadly pit viper in Sulawesi, Indonesia

Phil is an ecologist currently working on his PhD in Vancouver, Canada and is originally from Montréal, Québec. He’s the talented multi-language speaker in this household, fluent in English, French, Spanish – and pretty darn good at Indonesian too!

He is also passionate about research and education! Phil’s experience as a science educator and researcher has taken him to ecological hot spots and sites in Honduras, Ecuador, and Indonesia. His discovery of a parasitoid wasp in the Amazon rainforest has been profiled in Scientific American, CBC News, and Smithsonian.com, among other news outlets.

Phil is also the co-founder of Wide Open Projects (WOP), a non-profit organization assisting in educational, social and conservation projects in Raja Ampat, West Papua, Indonesia. Phil loves rock climbing, hiking, biking, and telling dad jokes.

About Wayfaring Humans

Research has shown that multilingual children gain cross-cultural awareness from a young age and learn early on to empathize with others around them. Hopefully we can all help to promote (in whatever small ways that we can) a better, kinder world through education.
