Travelling 10,000 miles from 3 and half feet up

BY JOLENE FOREMAN
@ VOL 16 ON AUG 12, 2017

In her presentation, Jolene Foreman starts by explaining how she's had the travel bug since a little child. In the summer of 2016, her family embarked on a grand European adventure, where the parents let the kids document the travels on the family cameras. This created a unique perspective of the trip that adults would never have noticed otherwise. Jolene wants to challenge the audience outside their comfort zone and to travel with kids if they can make the opportunity. Borrow someone else's if you don’t have your own!
