MEET YOUR HOST

Hi! Our names are Kate and Ben, and we have three awesome boys who are 2, 8, and 9 years old. We have been traveling almost full time and worldschooling since May 2023. We do occasionally stop in to our home base in Tulsa, Oklahoma, or our home away from home base in Kauai, HI. Speaking of Kauai, we are so excited to share this magical island with worldschooling friends! Our first time in Kauai was for our honeymoon in 2013, and we have been bringing our kids back regularly since 2018. We normally spend a few weeks at a time there and visit at least a couple of times per year, so we have become very familiar with Kauai- but never so familiar that we aren’t still amazed at it’s wonder and beauty! We also have been so grateful to learn about the beautiful culture there and the way they steward nature, as well as get to know some amazing people in the local community.  

As far as the rest of our travels go, we love a combination of city and nature. Some of our favorite places to visit so far have been France, Switzerland, Costa Rica, and Australia. We have learned to slow ourselves down, and so we try to spend 3-6 weeks in each location now. When we started last summer, we moved faster and it was not sustainable for our family. Our travel goals are to really immerse ourselves in a place and culture, meet people, and leave with more empathy for our human family. We want our kids to become curious, courageous, and compassionate citizens of the world, and we feel this gives them that opportunity.  We are so looking forward to meeting other worldschooling families and learning about what they have discovered on their journeys, what works for them, and their unique goals and desires! Oh and sharing the magical island of Kauai with them and connecting while we soak in the beauty!

LODGING & NEIGHBORHOODS & TRANSPORT:

Kauai is a small island, but only has one main road around it so drive times can be long. Because of this, we will spend most of our time on the North and Northeast side of the island, with either a day trip or overnight trip to the South and West Sides. 

The areas of Kilauea, Princeville, and Hanalei will be central to most activities, Anahola and Kapaa are other options that are not far. There are many hotels and condos available in Princeville and Kapaa, a few hotels in Anahola, & Airbnbs can be found in Kilauea and Hanalei, though Hanalei will be the most expensive. Camping is possible, my recommendation would be Anini Beach Park. The host family will be staying just outside of Kilauea, which is also very close to Princeville.

For the night we may spend on the South side, Poipu and Koloa will be most convenient and have many hotel options. Camping at Koloa or Polihale State Parks are also an option that night if you are adventurous. More info on this will be shared in the Facebook Group as we sort details. 

A rental car is recommended for this trip as only the center of towns are walkable, and the bus is a very slow method of transportation. Uber is also available, but not very reliable.
