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

More Friends in Volcan Volcán

The past couple days we’ve spent most of our time with people we’ve met here in Volcan. On Thursday, we drove Marisol around Cerro Punta, and the neighborhoods of Volcan, while she told us all about the area, how the farms work, what it’s like to live here, the best places to buy different things, and a lot of other interesting information. We then bought...

Rock with an ancient map Volcán

Today we went to an archeological site called Sitio Barriles, near Volcan, which has unearthed hundreds of artifacts from the time roughly between 2000 B.C and 300 A.D. We saw a large rock with a map (supposedly) painted on it. We were told that the spirals probably represented mountains or volcanoes, and circles represented cities, as it described local geography from the Caribbean to the...

Emily doing a Panamanian dance in our living room Volcán

Today we met and had lunch with a nice family we met on some Panama forums before we left. Bernie helps people protect assets and minimize taxes through foreign trusts and foundations, and we had some long talks about that. Marisol and Jen talked a bit about health and home schooling, both of which we’re interested in. They also have a 2 year daughter named...

Emily with miniature pony Volcán

Monday morning I woke up early and got a fresh start on the day with some tai chi before anyone else was up. I also got some work done in the morning, and it felt good to get caught up a bit more. That afternoon we went to Finca Guardia (Guardia farm) to ride and see some miniature ponies they have there. When we found...

Volcán

On Sunday, we went to the Volcan LDS branch – what great and kind people! We even got invited to dinner this week by a sweet retired couple who maintain this website of pictures of Volcan. We may be seeing other members this week as well. Emily went to primary without a problem today, but Marie was too shy to go. During Relief Society, Jen...

Volcán

Yesterday, we made the 1.5 hour drive from Boquete to Volcán, Panama. While Boquete is beautiful, and many people choose it as a retirement destination, it didn’t hold a whole lot of luster for us as a place to stay more than a few days. We found the town to be a bit too crowded and cramped for our tastes. As soon as we made...

Boquete

Yesterday we had breakfast and lunch at home (cereal and peanut butter and jam), then went to the Paradise Gardens Wildlife Rescue Center just outside of Boquete. What an awesome experience! Where else can you not only see, but hold, pet, and interact with a variety of unusual animals? We got to pet a blue hyacinth macaw, hold a baby two-toed sloth, pet a baby...

Boquete

On our first morning in Boquete, we received quite a shock about the place where we’re staying (Cabanas Sabrin). When we stepped into the shower, we discovered there was no hot water! All the faucets, including the shower, have only an option for cold water. So we both took cold showers, which really woke us up! And Boquete is colder than where we came from...

Boquete

On Wednesday, we left El Valle and headed out for our next stop – Boquete – a five hour drive on the Pan-American highway. We left our rental house about 9:00 a.m. and drove straight to Penonome (1.5 hours) for gas and snacks – with a couple stops along the way for Emily to recover from car sickness. She threw up once on the way...

El Valle de Antón

I’m going to keep this one short and just summarize our days’ activities, as more of a log. We tried the Serpentarium again – still closed. Spent more time at the library. Ate lunch at Casa de Lourdes. Beautiful restaurant. Food was okay. The price is probably more for the atmosphere than the food, in my opinion. Came home, had cookies, and watched cartoons together....
