Travel Philosophy

From letting it all go to getting the most out of any moment, we discuss our philosophies on travel, family and coping with life.

A Dream Worth Striving For

From eating a croissant by the Eiffel Tower to climbing Mount Everest, every person has a secret dream of what they one day hope to accomplish. Mine is simple and attainable. So why is it going to take me a lifetime to achieve it? A hint, my dream is not a destination, it's a state of mind.

Where’s Home for a Barefoot Nomad?

Where is home?

Is it a place? The house you grew up in? Where you keep your most treasured possessions?

Is it a country? Lines drawn on a map, forged by treaties and wars and negotiations?

Once, home was what I knew, what was familiar, what was nearby. The world was unknown, full of places I hadn't seen and unfamiliar people.

We've been on the road, off and on, for over ten years now. First as a couple hanging out in dodgy hostels and hanging off the back of tuk-tuks in Thailand, and now as a family with two little travelers leading the charge.

All those years have left an imprint: Home is a mosaic; a collection of places and people, tastes and sounds.
