14. He Was a World Traveler By Age 4
Continuing the Barack Obama childhood vibe, let’s dig into the fact that he was better traveled by age four than most Americans are at 40. After Barack was born in August of 1961, his mother took him back to the United States mainland (Seattle) to continue her education.
The following year, she returned to Hawaii with her little boy in tote, and Barack Sr. ventured to Cambridge, Massachusetts, to study at Harvard.
Ann met Lolo Soetoro in 1962, a Javanese surveyor, who was studying geography in Hawaii. Ann and Barack Sr. ended their marriage in 1964, and in 1965, she married Lolo.
In 1967, she took Barack to Jakarta, Indonesia, to live with Lolo. Now you know why President Obama can speak Indonesian fluently. In 1971, Barack moved back to Hawaii to live with his maternal grandparents, where he would stay to complete his secondary education.
