08 – Camping with kids, homeschooling and motherhood with Bohannah Gerritsen from The Simple Folk

Have you always felt nervous to go camping with kids? How about full time while also homeschooling? Our beautiful guest this week does just that – with so much love for her children and enjoyment of motherhood. We can’t wait to introduce you to Bohannah gerritsen from The simple folk.

Bo – along with her husband Tye and three kids Indiana (iggy) Archer and Olive – live an unconventional life, freelancing their way around Australia – working on content creation, homeschooling and spending their days living for the moment. Did we add, they are doing this all while camping in a tent? Bo and her family are so inspiring, down to earth, and so in love as a family.

In this podcast we chat to Bohannah about:

  • Camping with kids – the highs, the lows (and insects!) and just how it really works when doing it all in a tent

  • How they made the decision to travel full time

  • Some of the challenges that come with living on the road

  • How they manage to shop and cook (and the fact that the kids do all the cooking!)

  • How they fill their cups and spend their days

  • What homeschooling really looks like

  • And so much more.

Bohannah and her family are such beautiful souls, and their travels and stories have been really inspiring to us. You can follow along their adventures on Instagram or TikTok.
