Exploring South America with Kids

Meet Michelle Mundy. She and her husband have been exploring South America with kids and recently settled for a while in Peru.

In this Epic Education Radio interview, I talk to Michelle about traveling in South America with kids, living in Peru, and how they found the school where their kids are now enrolled.

They have lived in Mexico, traveled in Colombia and Chile, and spent significant amounts of time in Ecuador and Argentina. Now based in Peru, Michelle walks us through a day in the life of their town, as well as what education means for her family.
