Welcome to our journey, a tale of chasing freedom through family travel adventures with our kids.
Ok, here is our story.
We’re a typical family from the UK, at least that’s what we’d like to believe (though opinions may vary!). For the past decade, we’ve lived, worked, and wandered across international borders, all the while looking for any and all opportunities to travel with kids.
Our story began in 2010, pre kids, when we made life changing choice – booking a one-way flight to Malaysia (an enticing offer from AirAsia at a mere £99!). With a head full wanderlust and insufficient bank balance, we embarked on an adventure that would impact our choices forever, traveling for as long as our funds would allow.
Six months later, reality caught up with us, and we found ourselves counting pennies. In pursuit of this dream, we discussed how could we make this our full time life, we ventured to South Korea, where we embarked on a new chapter teaching English.
Two years and a baby later, we realised that teaching could be our gateway to maintaining an international lifestyle. We briefly returned to England for fully qualified teacher training and welcomed another little rascal into our family before finding ourselves in North Cyprus, teaching at an international school.
From Cyprus, our journey took us to the lush landscapes of Brunei in Southeast Asia, where we spent the next five years surrounded by the jungle. However, when the grip of the pandemic locked down the country, we were stuck within its borders. It was during this time of reflection that we made a commitment to truly living life (didn’t we all?).
The world was calling and we ready to take the leap
We wanted to expose our kids not only to new awe-inspiring places, captivating cultures, the joys and challenges of meeting new people and the amazing adventures, but also to the invaluable lessons learned through travel.
In 2022, the decision was clear – we quit our jobs, parted with our possessions, packed our backpacks, and began our life as a world travel family.
And so, this …is where you join us
We are now a full-time world travel family, making our way around the world in search of new experiences and learning opportunities with the kids. Our journey unfolds on a budget, as we seek affordable adventures that spark joy and curiosity.
Our blog started as a place to inspire other families to travel and help others plan their trip.
