We, travel family of five are a bunch of dreamers that decided the daily grind wasn’t for us anymore! Something had to give, so we got rid of it all in search for adventure, fun, and meeting great people all over the world! Are there challenges- YES! Do we know where we are headed next- NOPE! Are we up for an adventure- YEP! Let’s do it! You wanna meet up around the world somewhere?
A LITTLE BIT
THE YEAR OF ADVENTURE
This year was full of epic adventures, we spent four months in Bali and attended a Worldschooling pop up community with over 30 other families for one month. It was full of new opportunities and meeting new friends. The kids met so many other Worldschooling kiddos and created their own friendships. Something that we love to see:). This is also the year that sparked the idea for Future Filmmakers. After teaching 15 kids the basics of filmmaking, and their parents- we knew there was a need for video making knowledge. It has been a ton of work but so worth it.
SO MUCH EXPLORING
We set out on our first real long journey. 3 months around Southeast Asia. We planned a loose itinerary of travel through the Philippines, Thailand and Bali. This was an absolutley amazing experience and made us so attached other parts of the world. The warmth, majesty, innocence, kind-hearted, welcoming, culture, cuisine, smiles, there are so many words that can describe what we experienced. We highly recommend traveling to spots around the world whenever possible, it is so important to get outside of your comfort zone, it makes you feel alive. It is so cool to see the world through our kids eyes, the wonderment and excitement while traveling has blown our minds. We can’t wait to see how this helps shape their lives as they get older. Only time will tell!
THE YEAR THAT CHANGED IT ALL
This year will go down in history for our family. We flipped the switch on everything we knew and set out on a path less traveled. Sometimes you gotta just shake things up and see what happens. Selling everything we owned and downsizing from a house into a 300 sf. RV was quite the task-there were a few moments where we took a step back and said what the hell are we doing LOL and then we snap out of that and get back to it. Taking our kids out of school was probably the most freeing experience of all. Not having to abide by a school year timeline was amazing! Travel was awaiting and we can’t tame her, once you’ve been bit there is no cure!

HOW WE MAKE IT WORK
People always ask us how we travel the world with three young children. I always think to myself whether we are sedentary in a house or traveling, kids will be kids, they will have meltdowns. They will fight and sometimes there will be tears, if it’s going to happen anyways I’d rather be in a tropical location. What we have learned over the past few years is that kids are pretty darn resilient and I don’t think we give them enough credit for how capable they really are. Travel days are probably the most challenging days as we travel. It is typically 8 to 24 hours of travel time which entails boat rides, long taxi / bus rides and flights that may be delayed which leave you sitting in a hot and sweaty airport. It’s not the most comfortable of times and we have seen it over and over again that kids deal with it sometimes better than adults. Traveling offers more than we can ever imagine. The people you meet, the culture you experience, the foods you taste, the languages you learn, it’s endless. The one thing I know for certain is there are a few things you must be ok with- you must be flexible, understanding of certain situations, being able to adapt to other cultures and lots more.
