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

El Valle de Antón

On Monday, we got a late start in the morning, which has been typical for us, lately. When went to the Serpentarium, which we’d heard was a lot of fun, and they let you hold a a boa constrictor, we realized they were closed. We’re not sure for how long, so we might try to go back. It was during the noon hour, so it...

Not having the Internet has thrown me off a bit, as it appears I forgot to post about Valentines Day, but did the two days following. Anyway, here is what we did on Valentine’s Day. This year, we spent Valentine’s Day in the picturesque town of El Valle de Anton. We all slept in that morning, relaxing and enjoying being in this beautiful place. The...

El Valle de Antón

On Sunday, we planned on going to the Penonome branch for church, about a 2-hour drive from El Valle. Fortunately, church started at 12pm (we thought), so we had time to get ready. We left a bit late, and really didn’t know how to get there, but we left anyway, and made our way to Penonome. We got to the city right about noon, but...

El Valle de Antón

Our second morning in El Valle, we got up early (6:30am) hoping to see some birds and other animals. We heard the same pretty bird songs as the day before and other pretty sounds, but didn’t see any animals. We had a nice walk, although the girls were pretty tired and ornery that we got them up so early. I forgot to mention, we did...

El Valle de Antón

Wow, wow, wow. That’s what I have to say about El Valle de Anton. It is absolutely breathtaking. Take the lushness and flowers of Kauai, mix it with the manicured gardens of Kyoto, and the drastic peaks and valleys of the Rockies, and you have El Valle. It’s a lot cooler than Panama city, with temperatures generally between 65-75 (from what we’ve felt anyway). El...

Panama City

Before we left for Panama, we ordered a rental car through Thrifty for three weeks. We got a small Toyota Yaris for a great price – $437 for 3 weeks, which includes picking it up in Panama City and dropping it off in David (a $150 charge). (Note: There wasn’t an option to drop off in David on their website, so I had to call...

Panama

Okay, now that I’m without Internet access where we’re staying, I’ve been writing the content of the blog and pictures while off-line, then coming to the Internet cafe to put everything on the blog. It’s a little inconvenient, but seems to be working okay. What I miss most, however, about not having the Internet is just being able to look things up that we’re learning...

El Valle de Antón

Just a quick note to say we’re here in El Valle de Antón! Taboga Island was beautiful! We spent two days there at a rental house overlooking the water. We played at the beach, walked around town and had a great time. More details later. Now we’re in El Valle which I think is five times as beautiful as Taboga (but without the ocean since...

Panama City

Today we went to church at the Bella Vista ward. It was quite different from the ward we went to last week near the Temple. This ward was comprised almost entirely of Spanish speakers, so obviously, everything was in Spanish. The past few days, Emily has been very distraught after getting dressed in the morning, saying that her clothes feel funny. Today was especially bad,...

Panama City

Today we had a nice big breakfast at our hotel. For some reason, I was really hungry and able to eat a lot more food than usual. It felt good to have a large breakfast. We let the girls play on the playground for a bit, while chatting with a woman from Ireland who’s actually living in the Torres de Alba apartments while her husband...
