Thanks for stopping by!
We are an entrepreneurial, homeschooling, traveling family of eight with a passion for adventure.
The Adventure Begins…
We should have known that our life as a family would always be filled with adventure, because it started out that way from the very beginning. We (the parents) met walking across America from Los Angeles, CA to Washington D.C. over the course of a summer with a group of college students.
We were young… and sweaty… and by the end of the walk, pretty in love.
Our relationship officially started on a trip to Germany for a few weeks and it has been an adventure since then. On that fateful walk across the country, we constantly challenged each other to get out of our comfort zones and when we got married, we made a pact to always continue to challenge each other.
And then there were babies…
Six in ten years to be more specific. And we thought walking across America was an adventure. Parenthood is certainly the biggest adventure we’ve ever embarked on and it makes all the other adventures so much more exciting.
And yes, it makes it tougher at times too (flying internationally with six kids is no easy feat).
In our early years of marriage we also built three successful online businesses in between having babies. These businesses made it financially possible for us to be location independent and also were the catalyst for needing travel and adventure.
As the saying goes:
Why work 40 hours a week for someone else when you can work 80 hours a week by owning your own business?
and that is exactly what we did.
Until one day we realized that we hadn’t taken a real vacation in years and that we were working until 11pm each night just to stay on top of the businesses. We also realized that our oldest children were halfway to adulthood and that we had only a few precious years left with everyone at home.
And then travel…
That’s when we made the decision to automate the businesses as much as possible so we could reduce our daily workload and spend more time with our kids. We bought an RV and some international plane tickets and the travel adventures began..

Yes, Travel is Possible with Kids!
There are a lot of blogs about travel, and a lot of blogs about kids, but very few about traveling with kids (especially a lot of kids). We hope that our experiences in business and travel will inspire you to consider it too!
