Round-the-world adventures with the Andrus family

Think planning your own round-the-world trip is hard? Try it with four kids (ranging from pre-school to high-school aged) in tow.

The Andrus family undertook just that challenge, which they chronicle in their blog, Six in the World. They began in Utah in May of 2006, and headed west around the world with plans to finish up their journey this August (after using nearly a million frequent flyer miles). Currently, they are in Chennai, India, volunteering at a kids home.

The blog discusses the joys of traveling as a family as well as the difficulties, including the ordeal of getting everyone vaccinated, the difficulty of home-schooling on the road, and kids who get motion sickness on long, windy roads (with photos to prove it).
