Some people like the white picket fence, the dog, the job and the kids lifestyle. No so for Chais and Shawna Meyer. They’re out to explore something others have been known to fear – the world outside their own comfort zones. Join them as they feast on the delicacies only found through travel and following a dream.

    Hats off to you both. We shall live but once, thus, might as well live it to the fullest.

    More power!

    Thank you very much David!

    It is incredible and sad how, when living in the United States, our world didn’t seem that much larger than our own Country’s borders. While we’ve been traveling for the last six months, we’ve been blown away at how awesome the rest of the world actually is!

    We agree on the bravery side of things, we’re trying to get our friends and family to come and see us while we’re living overseas. Hopefully we’ll twist a couple people’s arms to get them over here!

    Thanks again,
    Chais & Shawna Meyer

    Thank you very much!
    We love that saying/quote: “We shall live but once, thus, might as well live it to the fullest.” and we strive to live by this moto daily!

    Thanks again,
    Chais & Shawna Meyer

    Thanks for your blog. It does take a while to get used to travelling overseas. When I started looking at travel in China, I had no idea where or what I was getting into.

    So far so good. Only real nightmare: homicidal cross town bus driver.

    I found your post very interesting. I am just a Freshman in college and I have not decided my major yet. However, I am a person that does want that family life EVENTUALLY, but before that I want to travel. Actually, this summer I am going to Kenya on a mission trip!

      The thumb. A very useful part of the anatomy, especially when you decide to head out into the world, hitchhike and use other modes of transportation. For Jo Magpie, it (both actually) have served her well in her travels – always heading east. She’s once again on the move. Yup, east.

      Naomi, David and their two sons are ‘on a slow roam around the world’. Though both successful, David didn’t want his children to view him as the dad who was always working. So, with the business and house sold, possessions relocated – the four set off to explore. Their style of travel allows them to live/work in comfort while spending quality time with Lucas and Easy (Ezekiel).

      In 2008, the Annison family moved from the UK to New Zealand and bought a boat. In 2010, they upgraded to a camper van to explore the country. Though the cats stay home to help the elder son with the yard work and house, the remainder of the family (including the dogs) traverse the open roads of Kiwidom, searching for hidden treasures.
