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

Bali / Education / Indonesia / Personal / Travel

Our daughter Emily (15) has been passionate about the environment for many years. In our travels, she’s seen some of the most pristine and beautiful natural wonders on this planet. She’s also seen beautiful places covered in trash, coral reefs destroyed, and glaciers receding due to increased temperature. Being strongly moved by this, she has dedicated herself to learning more about her own impact on...

Two Weeks in Kerala, India India / Travel

With the dozens of countries we’ve visited over the past decade, we kept putting off traveling to India with our kids mostly because we heard it can be a bit intense, and a place where it’s easy to get sick. We’ve always wanted to go, but with young children regularly putting fingers in their mouths, we thought it would be best to wait until they...

How Fulfilling Are Your Relationships? Family / Friends / Goals / Personal / Spirituality / Travel

How connected do you feel to your partner or your kids? To extended family and friends? To a community? And how fulfilling are those connections for all involved? In our modern culture, we’re often taught the value of becoming self-reliant and independent. Sometimes as we “succeed” in this, it leads to a sense of isolation. Or we may shut ourselves off from deeper emotions in order to...

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...
