Now that our house has sold and Simon has resigned from his job, it’s so lovely to finally be able to share our plans with everybody here in Adelaide and abroad. As a result, we’ve been blessed with so many new followers here on the blog, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter. We really hope that you enjoy traveling with us through our blog posts, and that maybe we might even inspire others to have an adventure of their own!
As you have learnt, we plan to slow travel with our children. We’d like to live and work in different communities around the globe, immersing our family in different cultures, languages and experiences, learning as we go. Simon and I will need to work as we travel (there isn’t an endless pool of money unfortunately) but by keeping our living expenses low, our dream is to work less, and live more with the children. We are also hoping that this blog, and it’s associated social media outlets will also help generate a little trickle of income to keep us travelling longer, and that’s where you come in dear readers!
We need your help… Blogs make money through advertising on the side panels, sponsored posts, product reviews, and paid writing for other sites, BUT to get the attention of travel related companies and products we need to have a constant flow of ‘traffic’ visiting our blog as well as a strong following of subscribed readers. YOU can help us without even leaving your couch, and it won’t cost you a cent. If you like what you read on our blog, Facebook etc, please share it with your friends. If you think that you might know somebody who dreams of world travel with or without children, long or short term, please send them a link to our blog or social media accounts. If you haven’t already subscribed to receive email updates from the blog, please do! Basically, SHARE, SHARE, SHARE like crazy! We would be eternally grateful for each and every comment on the blog or other social media platforms, and for each time that you hit the ‘share’ button. In return, we promise to keep you updated with regular posts to inspire you to have your own adventures (big and small) and to keep you updated with the realities of family travel on a budget.
Before we head to Europe later in the year, we are spending 3 months Housesitting a gorgeous rural home in the Bega Valley in New South Wales. From there, we will be able to explore a beautiful part of Australia that we’ve not traveled to before, as well as see lots of Australian wildlife. We’re using this time away from the distractions of suburban life to focus on family time, our health and general well-being, and further exploration of Unschooling and natural learning with our children. During this time I also hope to put together a little guide on how we went from regular suburban family, to a world travelling, Unschooling one! I hope that this will be of interest to a few readers as well, so keep an eye out for that 🙂
Once again, thanks so much to all of our followers. Having you all come along for the ride makes us feel like the world really isn’t so big and scary at all!
