Tim and wife Kerry, and daughters Amy (11) and Ella (9) are the Meek family - a normal everyday family… or so it seems! Inspired by others, they got their first taste of adventure a couple of years ago and haven’t looked back, completing 100 Family Adventures and making some radical life changes.

 

Disillusioned by the Education System and looking to reinvigorate themselves as teachers and their children as learners, Tim and Kerry, gave up their teaching jobs, sold their house and took their girls out of school. They are now spending 2015 travelling around the UK in a caravan and having a year of Ed-Venture; looking for rich and engaging learning, and squeezing in more than just a little bit of family adventure along the way.
