Travelling Slow with Mozart: Interview with Jeanne from SoulTravelers3 (Part 1)

Plenty of parents take their kids travelling. But how many parents go into early retirement, sell their home, and head out with their young child to travel the world, slowly and for as long as they can?

That’s precisely what Jeanne and her husband are doing with their daughter Mozart (her internet nickname). Since the middle of 2006, they have been travelling through Europe and northern Africa – with no end in sight.

One Man’s Global Quest for a New Home (Interview)

For most of us, travel is a leisure activity: a temporary disruption of every day life. For Dave, travel is much, much more than that. It’s a means to an end.

Dave is on a global quest to find a place to call home. So far, that quest has taken him across Europe and Asia on an overland journey from Portugal to China. And there’s more to come, as Dave is still looking.

I caught up with him to find out more about what drove him to travel the world in search of a new home.

Living the Rural Dream

In May 2008, the Family Smudge sold their house, quit their job and took to the roads of Europe with a camper. (Interview with Alice Smudge)

Baby on Board: Interview with Alice Smudge

Ever dreamed of living life on the road?

Meet the Family Smudge: Scott and Alice, 1-year old Isabella, and Milla, the family dog. Earlier this year, Scott quit his full-time job, and they sold their house, scaling down their belongings to live in a camper. Three months later, the Family Smudge hit the road, setting out from their home in England on a long-term road trip around Europe. This isn't just a family holiday: this is a complete change of lifestyle.

In this interview, TravelBlogs talks to Alice about their decision to pack up, live in a camper, and travel around Europe.

    • A Girl and Her Thumb

      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.

    • Home and Away

      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).

    • Kiwi Blog Bus

      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.
