Oh, To Be In The Fifth Grade Again…

FlyerTalk member olafman took the year off to travel with her husband and eleven-year-old son on a trip around the world, posting about “My son’s fifth grade year: 97,737 miles, 40 flights, 6 continents and 16 countries” that will extend all the way through June 2011 and will continuously post entries in this trip report until the trip is completed.

Furthermore, the purpose of the trip is to actually live in the places at which they visit — not to merely be a tourist in them for a short period of time — and each member of the family was permitted to choose one place in which to live that no other member of the family could veto.

One FlyerTalk member said it best: “I wish you could have been my mother !”
