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 36 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 9 years of experience traveling with kids of every age from 0 to 14, 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 Summit conference where you can meet other inspiring families who are doing this in exciting locations around the world. Also be sure to check out our Family Travel Accelerator program where we show give LIVE monthly training sharing what we’ve learned on our journey, along with Q&A for you to get your questions answered and get the support you need.

    While many people would love to travel long-term with their families, the task of figuring out to how to fund a traveling lifestyle can seem daunting. It is hard to figure out where to even begin, when all you have known your whole life is how to create a conventional life with a conventional 9-5 job.

    A Scrumptious Hibernation in Nelson, New Zealand Education / Family / Food / Music / New Zealand / Personal / Travel

    Believe it or not, we’re homebodies. It may seem paradoxical that we’re also long-term traveling, worldschooling adventurers. Those things don’t typically go together, do they? But for us, they seem to work out quite magically. I’m reminded of the hobbits in Lord of the Rings. They aren’t necessarily wired for adventures, but some find travel to be invaluably “precious” in their journey through life. We see worldschooling as a...

    The West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island —Three Traveling Families Sharing One Epic Roadtrip New Zealand / Travel

    Have I mentioned how much more kids learn when they are exploring the world with their friends? For example, what might be “just another hike” morphs into an exciting adventure with new playmates. “Boring” car drives suddenly shift gears as kids learn the valuable art of car swapping, so they can score a seat next to their friend. Party in the back seat anyone? Playing on...

    Centrally located near the top of the South Island, Nelson made an excellent home-base for our three-month visit in New Zealand, and we completely luxuriated in the time we spent there. Because the country is quite large and packed full of awesomeness around every corner, we did occasionally venture to other places as well. Our first trip began with a short stay in Auckland on the North Island, to renew Aysia’s passport....

In this week’s video, we provide a glimpse into our luggage, and offer some packing tips. I share my favorite travel backpack, as well as what’s inside my suitcase. Jennifer struggles with what...

    Bali / Personal / Spirituality

    Meditation is a simple mental focus exercise that can have powerful effects in your daily life. Personally, it’s increased my awareness of the thoughts and emotions I experience and improved my ability to choose how I respond to situations in life, rather than react unconsciously. When I’ve had a consistent practice of meditation, it’s also reduced stress and anxiety, increased my compassion for others, and...
