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

Panama City

Friday night, we took the girls swimming in the pool that’s at the hotel. They were so excited to go swimming. We even bought them inflatable life jackets, goggles, and a beach ball to play with. However, when it came to getting in the water, they were absolutely terrified! They didn’t mind sitting on the edge to splash their feet, and maybe taking a step...

Panama City

It’s been a few days since my last post. The main reason for this is that our current hotel doesn’t have Internet access. Well, it does – you can either take the elevator to the computer room and use their computers, or you can pay $7 to get the Internet in your hotel room for a day. Since I needed to use my own laptop...

Today we totally took it easy after having a long, but wonderful day before. We had breakfast in our pajamas again. Then we had the people at the hotel do our laundry. Jen was thrilled that she didn’t have to do it herself. We then wrote and read blogs and I did some computer work and e-mailing. The girls ran around in the yard here...

Okay, here’s my list of 25 random things about me, that everyon’s posting about these days. There’s some pretty personal stuff in here that hardly anybody knows, so by reading this, you will know more about me than just about anyone except my immediate family and my wife. I have had open heart surgery to replace a broken valve. Scary, huh? I don’t remember it...

Panama City

We got home late last night so I didn’t get a chance to blog, but we had so much fun yesterday! We slept in a bit, and had breakfast about 8:30 or so, in our pajamas. Then took a taxi to the top of a nearby hill, Cerro Ancón. There were great views of the city from up there, as well as of the Panama...

Panama City

Today, we had another wonderful daily breakfast at the Balboa Inn. (I especially love the fresh fruit.) Then we had a taxi pick us up and stay with us most of the day. He offerred to do so the night before when he dropped us off, so we had our own driver today for about $50.  One thing I forgot to mention yesterday about Panama...

Today was a lot of fun. We went to church in the morning. I had printed out a paper with a map and address of the church before we left home, and we gave it to the taxi driver. We also handed him a map and picture of the Temple, which we thought would be near the church. He took us to the Temple, and...

Panama City

What an awesome day! (See pictures at the end of this post.) This morning, after breakfast, we were picked up at our hotel by Anne, who was raised in Seattle, but has married into an indigenous Indian tribe in Panama who call themselves “Embera“. We took a one hour drive through lush tropical jungle, and then rode in a canoe (powered by a motor) for...

Panama

Today, I woke up about 7am, after about 11 hours of sleep, which seemed just about right with how much sleep we lost the night before. During my shower, I could hear pretty bird songs loud and clear, as there’s an open window in the bathroom. It was great! Once I got ready, I did my tai chi and a little standing yoga to get...

Panama

After a long and hard night of sleeping in airports and on planes, we finally made it to Panama! We flew from Salt Lake to Los Angeles at about 8:50pm, had a 3 hour layover, and then left for Houston at about 1:00am. When we got there a few hours later, we had 3 1/2 hour layover, and then we finally boarded the plan to...
