We are a family of five who packed up, sold or stored most of our stuff in the USA in May 2017, then hit the road to explore the whole world. We are kind of slow travelers, kind of fast travelers and kind of expats, just making it up as we go along.
Currently, we have settled for a few years in Spain and are adjusting to Spanish life, where we never eat out for dinner, since the restaurants open around the time we are getting ready for bed, and we are never more than 80% sure of what anyone says to us in Spanish ( “I’m 80% sure you are supposed to go to school today dressed like a shepherd”, “I’m like 80% sure he said it was okay to park here”, “I’m about 80% sure we are supposed to go to the stadium between 5-7 pm on Thursday to pay for your soccer team”). We take off from our new European home base whenever we can to travel and explore.
Here is a summary of where we have been since we left home:
2017 – We toured through the Western USA, along with some of the Midwest during our USA Road Trip, before we got to Europe, where we visited Iceland, Scotland, England, Belgium, Switzerland, France, Spain and Portugal
2018 – We took our big European Road trip over summer vacation, and also a few other trips throughout the year, visiting Spain (again), France (again), Andorra, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Montenegro. During the fall, we took trips to Morocco, Sweden and Denmark, ending the year with a few weeks in Florida in the USA.
2019 – We have big plans for the year, some of which we are still working on, but so far, in addition to our time in Spain, we have trips planned to Germany and Austria, Jordan, Canada, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina and Uruguay.
