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.
As with most ‘wanderers’, Sam Kynman-Cole has traversed certain parts of the world. From Asia to Europe, the US, Canada and a few others, he’s been playing Squash. No. Really. He likes playing Squash. He also likes driving across country and doing road trips. No matter where he goes, it definitely is his ‘playground’!
Indie (the dingo-looking dog) invited Jenny Hoobler and Ryan Kilpatrick to South Africa when Jenny won a Fullbright Award to conduct research at the University of Pretoria.

Kristine Arndt lives the ‘Beat Generation’ life style (think Jack Kerouac and Albert Camus) and is loving every minute of it. From singing for the President of Kazakhstan to herding cattle in Guyana, she has not let adventure pass her by in any way.
Turning 40, it seemed the right time for Julie and Jason to rent out the house, break from their jobs, buy a motor home and obtain Charlie’s pet passport. What was to be a one year tour of Europe has them thinking they may remain on the road awhile longer. Charlie (their terrier) seems all for the extension too. Can’t argue with a dog…
Frustrated with guidebooks and website information, while in Ankara (Turkey), Mike decided to started his own informational site. It is filled with personal stuff, as a traveler and tourist, that will aid others in finding those little gems we’d probably miss on this big blue orb we call home. His posts are realistic portrayals of his adventures.
Kristin Spencer and her husband are on a mission, one dictated by a ‘higher power’. Wherever they go – so go the ‘sprouts’ (aka their 2 young children). In fact, they are missionaries who’s serves having them traveling the world and it’s a family endeavor. Enjoy the entries of their adventures and the tips on how to make to make it all work.
A 19 year old London black cab, 3 friends, the British Red Cross and the Guinness Book of World Records -what do they all have in common? Normally nothing. But, in this instance – everything. Three friends decided to drive a London black cab from – you guessed it, London to Sydney, Australia – raising money for the British Red Cross and breaking the Guinness Word Record for the longest taxi ride. They broke the record and haven’t even reached Sydney yet.
