Some people have a travel gnome, I have my Maxwell

Standard

Film people are ALWAYS travelling.  And if you have a child, that precious one oftens comes along for the ride.  In the US, I was always defending my reasons for taking him out of his normal day to day and guilt would start fermenting inside me.  But after travelling Europe for 8 months and meeting similarly minded parents, I have to say that I feel lucky for giving him this gift of travel.  Maxwell has lived in Paris, Barcelona, California, and Louisiana.  My dear friend’s son, Gomez, has been homeschooled throughout New Zealand and Europe with a wonderful group of International crew member’s children while she worked on the Narnia films.  The two boys have developed kinships with children from wonderfully different places like Iceland, England, Malaysia, and Dubai.  I can’t help but think that this will give them a sense of belonging beyond the borders of their usual neighborhoods.

Lately Lily is a heartwarming site about a wonderfully vagabond child.
