Pearce Family

Who Are We?

We're a family who left behind our suburban lifestyle in the USA to explore the world together and expand our horizons while educating our kids and running an online business. Read more about us.

My Journey with Ayahuasca

Over my birthday this year, while the family was in Ronda, Spain, I took a train to Madrid for a 3-day retreat where an Amazonian plant mixture called ayahuasca was used to facilitate gre... Read More

Adventures in Andalucía

We were so impressed by our visit to Barcelona last year, that within seven months we found ourselves back in Spain once again, this time beginning in the southern part. Brandon gave Emily some fun new trip planning and navigating responsibilities as well. Since we planned to stay a night in Bangkok to break up the journey, he put Emily in charge of working out the... Read More

Menjangan Island, Bali

Just off the Northwest coast of Bali, Indonesia lies Menjangan island. Surrounded by clear water, colorful coral, and incredible numbers of fish, it's a spot we've been wanting to visit for some time. So we invited our friends, Brian and Scottie and their 5 year old son, and spent a few days there together. Well, actually the island is uninhabited, except for some monks. But there are seve...

My Solo Trip and Silent Retreat

I don't know about you, but there are a lot of thoughts swimming around in my head, and sometimes I get really tired of the inner noise. It's easy for me to get caught up in preparing for the future, reliving the past, or the constant chatter of labeling and critiquing everything in my present experience. Sometimes, I wish the voice in my head would just shut up and let me have some peace and q... Read More

Creating Home in Bali

We're enjoying Bali more now than ever. Last year, we were quite ready to leave when I wrote about what we love about Ubud and what we feel is lacking here. But lately, many of those lacks have been filled. From finishing a year-long remodel project, to finding several wonderful classes and friends for our girls, to connecting even mo... Read More

Savoring Singapore

After so much traveling before we came back to Bali this last time, we decided we wanted to keep our visa run as short, sweet, and simple as possible, while also acquiring a social visa for Bali. This way we are able to stay put for a while and also continue the finishing touches and organization of settling into our new home. So, off to Singapore we went. Si... Read More

Discovering Dubai

We were excited to go to Dubai when we booked our plane tickets, but then we became quite nervous after reading things like this online. Not your typical laid back, go with the flow, type of rules there. And, since we tend to feel a bit rebellious with things like that, we hoped we wouldn't be ov... Read More

How I Cured My Irritable Bowel Syndrome

After struggling with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) for over five years now, and trying every method I could to heal it, I think I've finally found a permanent cure! I've written about IBS before, and some of the tests, diets, and methods I've tried. And I've had a few periods of reduced symptoms that have lasted up to 3-4 ... Read More

Blissful in Barcelona

From the very first day we arrived in Barcelona, life for our family suddenly felt exquisitely harmonious and balanced, and remained so for the entire two month duration of our stay. We all felt quite blissed out in fact! That's the kind of magical effect Barcelona seemed to have on us, and it continues to infuse our memories of the place with a very special energy. And to think, we... Read More

Making Mormonism More Good

There is a lot of good in Mormonism. There are teachings of love and compassion, of service and productivity, of humility and integrity. Within its community, there is a sense of belonging and safety. And I see much sincerity in its people. However, I'm concerned that too often, the ability for members to live by these good principles is handicapped by other teachings in the church that when ... Read More
