Travelling With Kids:The Multicultural Kid Blogs Vlogging Telephone

Vlogging Telephone

If you remember, the motto of this year’s TEDxDelft event was “Do try this at home”. When I live-blogged for them, I felt quite inspired and thought what I could try at home that would challenge me a little (or a lot). I wanted to do something different, and then I remembered that I was once interviewed on ARTE television and that reminded me on how much I hate cameras. And then the BLUNTmoms came up with a great idea  of a vlogging telephone game where one person asks a question to another person and answers the question from a previous person.

It would have been possible to do this in a normal, written blog. But the BLUNTmoms decided to do it in as a chain of videos.  The result was so awesome,  especially getting to see and hear all these wonderful, super funny bloggers in action!

I am also a part of the Multicultural Kid Blogs, and decided that this group would be perfect to try out this idea: of making a video. Of vlogging.

Now I am much more eloquent in writing and usually prefer to communicate in writing. I feel safer that way but it is also because in writing I can collect my thoughts much better and it makes for a more reasonable, sensible communication.

But this time I tried something new and the result was really cool- thanks to the very awesome and knowledgeable bloggers of the Multicultural Kid Blogs who shared their funny, surprising or educational stories from all over the world.

So here it is: the Multicultural Kid Blogs Vlogging Telephone– I am starting on the MKB website and please click through to check out the other videos- it is fun!

      Right? I wish I could see him- not necessarily to get the bag back, but more so that I could see his face when he opened it.

    I just found this via google+, and I am quite excited to see so many other bilingual/trilingual families. I live in the Netherlands now, but I’m originally from Ukraine, lived in the US, and am married to a Friesian/Dutch man. In between all of our cultures/languages, we end up speaking three languages at home.

    I’m sorry that your luggage was stolen – that must have been such a headache!

      Hi Marysia, thank you for commenting! No it’s mission difficult but not mission impossible! And I guess a lot depends on how far you go!

    I am always amazed at people who can travel with kids – sometimes I find it tough enough to take care of myself, haha! All the best!

      Hi Lauren, thank you for commenting! I am also amazed and don’t know how people do it if they have to fly for more hours, for example from Europe to the US or even to Australia! All the best to you, too!

      Hi Adelina, thanks for commenting and for your kind words. It wasn’t really that hard but I think it took me several trials until I got it right!

    So the whole vlogging thing is so completely foreign to me but I really want to explore it before I start traveling long term so kudos to you! Thanks for linking up to the #SundayTraveler 🙂
