It’s been a year since Lainie and her son, Miro (then age 10), began their quest to live more simply on the road of life. Career burn-out, long hours, a failing economy and dwindling mother-son time aided in the decision to embark on this journey. Their website is a combination of blogs and podcasts that [...]
A single mom, a nine-year old son and a 12 month trip. Add them all together and you have the “Adventures of Theoroda and Zac Conquering the World!” Did you know the universe might just be a computer program designed by big, powerful, super-intelligent aliens? No? Well, that’s what these two are out to discover.
I had the opportunity to interview mother and son not long ago. I do believe you’ll find the replies quite amazing. It may not convince you of the alien program but you will be convinced that traveling with kids is a good thing.
Armed only with a restored 1971 VW Westfalia camper van, their 4 (now 5) year old son Bode, and maybe a bunch of needed equipment, the Rehm family – Angela and Jason – headed off to explore. Explore what, you may ask? Canada, U.S., Mexico and then just head south. Their mission: learn languages, volunteer [...]
You began your travels at an early age. You continued to travel until real life intervened – meaning fell in love, got married, bought a house, had children and worked for a living. It may not have happened in quite that order (for some) but the end result remained the same. Travel was relegated to family vacations and work-related trips to here or there. Regardless, a nagging little voice kept tapping you on the shoulder, “Take a year off. Travel. See the world. Bring the family. Just do it!” And, so it went for lisa Shusterman.
Travels with a Nine Year Old is the work of Theodora Sutcliffe. Together with her son, Z, they are on a year-long sojourn of discovery, learning life’s lessons and simply sharing time together – something Theodora felt was long overdue.
Sometimes, you just have to take the advice of someone else. In this case, Michael Schneider listened to his wife – a decision that opened his (and his family’s) eyes to unexpected and very rewarding opportunities. The OtherGuy’sDime Blog is a demonstration that you don’t have to give up your “day job” to travel the [...]
You and your partner are finally taking your dream vacation. The only thing is, by the time you got around to taking that dream vacation it’s no longer just you and your partner; it’s you, your partner and the kids. It’s not the end of the world…
Two parents, 2 daughters, 12 months, 17 countries, 1 world, 1 trip and 1 blog written by the whole family. One World – One Trip is the record of their journey around that world and back again. Each member contributes their point of view at different times during their explorations. Now home, newer entries are [...]
In his 2007 interview, Wade was described as a “modern-day nomad” and “travel was his lifestyle”. Not much has changed since that discussion. He’s still the “modern-day nomad” and “travel is still his lifestyle” but these days… That lifestyle includes a family. Wade met Chaya in 2008. They married and then gave birth to their daughter, Petra, in 2009. If you think parenthood overrides seeing the world – think again!
What started off as a sailing trip in the South Ocean has turned into an exploration of New Zealand in an old beat-up van for this family of three. Antonia, the family scribe, is a great storyteller, sharing their tales with a dry, witty style.
