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

Friendly Fiji Family / Fiji / Friends / Travel

I know many of you have been waiting a long time for this post. Doesn’t it just kind of seem like everyone wants to visit Fiji? We were certainly no exception. After leaving the extremely cold, dry, high-altitude conditions of Breckenridge, Colorado, in the snowy mountains of North America, we were especially excited to land in the intensely hot, humid, sea-level Fijian climate, in the...

Bonding in Breckenridge Colorado / Family / Spirituality / Travel / United States

We thought we’d be extra adventurous this year, and trade our typical tropical climate for a brave escapade into an extremely harsh and frozen one. Our girls have been craving snow almost ever since we left it six years ago. To appease them, we decided to venture a ski vacation with Brandon’s Mom and sister Ashley’s family, over Christmas and the New Year. Little did we...

A Victorian December Education / Entrepreneurship / Family / Friends / Photography / Victoria

Have you noticed we keep coming back to Victoria? This time we settled in for the month of December, curious to see if its winter season was really as mild as cold-phobic people like ourselves tend to prefer. This is Canada we’re talking about, after all. Wouldn’t you know, we discovered it really does live up to its reputation! It’s in a sub-Mediterranean zone, not...

Colorful San Miguel de Allende, Mexico Family / Food / Mexico / Music / San Miguel

Arriving in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico precisely in time for Day of the Dead, we enjoyed an exceptionally festive atmosphere. But in reality, there’s always some sort of celebration happening in this colorful town. The residents are friendly, respectful, and welcoming of visitors. It has a safe, small-town feel, where people recognize each other and say ‘hola’ on the streets, but it’s large enough to...

The Nostalgia of Coming Home Family / Music / Personal / Travel / United States / Utah

We’ve made five visits back to Utah since we moved away six years ago, and our most recent stay was the longest and best yet! There are always an abundance of emotions to process for our traveling family surrounding the idea of “coming home”. What does that actually mean anyway? For us, amid all the places we’ve lived these past several years and with everything we’ve...

Highlights of 2015 Personal / Travel

Another incredible year has passed! In 2015, we visited 7 countries, spent time with extended family, made many new friends, and found ourselves gradually integrating experiences and letting go of thoughts that have been holding us back for years. It hasn’t always been easy. We’ve had physical, emotional, and relationship challenges. We’ve felt tired, anxious, overwhelmed, and bored. But we’ve worked through it and learned...

Times Square Family / New York / Travel / United States

If I had to describe Manhattan in one word, it would be “energetic”. This intense place is buzzing with activity and excitement. Mammoth skyscrapers, throngs of diverse individuals, flashy advertisements, and the noise and smells of a big city. During our ten day trip there, we found ourselves feeling awed and engaged, but also exhausted and overwhelmed. It was a bit surreal to visit landmarks we’d heard and seen in countless movies, stories, and music...

Playing House in Victoria Canada / Family / Travel / Victoria

Ah, Victoria. You’re kind of our favorite. We spent July through September in this magical, perfect-sized, quaint, and oh-so-friendly place. It feels just like a warm hug with really delightful and cozy people. There’s seemingly always someone available to give you a smile, a helping hand, or a congenial chat. I’m beginning to think that many of the residents are actually angels incognito. I would go out...

Oaxacan black mole with cheese and dozens of other ingredients including chocolate, chili peppers, onions, and more at La Cocina restaurant in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Food / Mexico / San Miguel / Travel

One of our best-loved things about traveling to so many different places has been experiencing the culinary delights available in each one. We’ve been thoroughly enjoying Mexican cuisine ever since we first arrived in this festive country a couple of weeks ago, and it’s certainly one of our favorites! So, we thought we’d look into savoring a food tour while we’re here, and we enjoyed such a lovely...

Northwestern Delights Family / Oregon / Travel / Washington

As you may recall, when we left Paris in July, we were headed to Seattle for a much anticipated visit with our Grandma Alli. Along the way, we flew through the Calgary airport, where many of the senior citizen employees were dressed in cowboy attire and welcomed us with a lively musical performance, complete with a lassoing of Marie at the end, and some gifts...
