Destinations

In 2009, we sold our house to travel the world as a family, experience new cultures and languages, and expand our minds. So far, we’ve been to over 40 countries and dozens of cities and towns. Below, you can find a map of the highlights. Clicking any location will take you to posts about that location. (Note: Some of the places we’ve traveled may not have yet made it into blog posts or on this map.)

We have over 10 years of experience traveling with kids of every age from 0 to 15, and we’re passionate about encouraging other families who are interested in long-term travel.

Families who are interested in doing this often have many questions from education and finance, to packing and luggage, to safety and healthcare, to locations and community. If you’d like support in your travel journey, be sure to check out the annual Family Adventure Academy, a 3-day live bootcamp for parents who want to take their families on a travel adventure.

If your family is ready to hit the road, even for a week, we’d love to see you at the Family Adventure Summit an annual 4-day event for families in held exciting locations around the world where you can meet other inspiring families who are doing this, too, and receive encouragement and support in your journey.

For online support, check out our Family Travel Accelerator course, with over 6 hours of training on questions from how to fund your travels, to how to decide where to go, along sharing what we’ve learned on our journey

Planning a Couples Trip in Maui, Hawaii Hawaii / Travel / United States

Each year, Jen and I take a couples trip together, just the two of us. This year, we chose one of the most paradisiacal places we’ve ever been to – Maui, Hawaii. (Here’s a video of it our 13-year old daughter Marie put together for us). Maui is so incredibly beautiful! The weather is just about perfect, with a misty rain that periodically falls throughout the...

Shopping Spree – What Gear Am I Replacing From What Was Stolen? Travel

Due to last week’s theft, where I lost nearly everything, I have a lot of shopping to do. However, being in Europe, it doesn’t make sense to buy most items here, as the majority of products I need either aren’t readily available, or are much more expensive than buying through Amazon in the U.S. So I’ve been filling up my digital shopping cart and getting...

Exploring Transylvania Romania / Travel

Transylvania took us completely by surprise. It is nothing like we expected. Not that we really thought we’d see vampires, bats, and monsters in castles (and we haven’t), but we didn’t realize how culturally rich, historically preserved, naturally lush, and energetically grounded this place is. We came here mostly to run through the program for our At Home in the World Retreat, which we will...

Spain / Travel

We did it! We walked 180km as a family from Trabadelo to Santiago de Compostela, Spain, over the course of 9 days. With several hours per day of walking, this was a fairly intense experience for us. Our friends had walked much further, having started near the French border in the Pyrenees mountains. We joined them for the last stretch of the trip a couple...

Hungary / Travel

Having been at this “travel the world” thing for over 9 years, you’d think we would have learned a few lessons. But a couple recent experiences have shown us how easy it is to forget or to become lazy in our approach to handling both travel details and safety. I share this to help other travelers out there avoid the same mistakes, and to keep...

A Gritty and Real Portugal Road Trip Portugal / Travel

We drove from Porto to Lisbon on a 9-day road trip, stopping in Coimbra and Sintra on the way. Here are a few things that stood out to us about our time in Portugal, and photos of some...

San Diego Visit 2017 California / Travel / United States

Back in March 2017, we spent a few weeks in San Diego, California where we attended a conference with some of our friends and team members, visited family, shot some testimonial videos for my Music Teacher’s Helper business, and visited a few beautiful parts around this city. Our 12-year old daughter Marie edited a fun video from footage I took during our time there, which you can...
