129- Spit Up and Heels Today on the show we have Stephanie Pletka from the blog Spit Up & Heels. This family has been able to experience a lot of travel thanks to their job. When the idea of full time travel came around 9+ years ago. Both husband and wife were excited and ready to do whatever it took to make it happen. They begin to work extra hard to set up a location independent job in their tech field and stashed away her income for 5 years to prepare for the trip and now it's been almost 4 years of traveling. Their most recent trip was an RV trip across the US to set up a home base in Arizona but they've spent time in almost 46 States and multiple countries in Europe, depending on where the work come from. Now they've began to limit their traveling to the summer when kids are out of school.

126- The Worldwide Webers Today on the show we have Erica from The Worldwide Webers. Her and her husband and toddler have gotten to see a list of amazing places! They were both born and raised in different parts of the States, met in New York and from there started traveling the globe. Spending time in different places depending on where their job took them. Sometimes it works out for them to travel to a place for work and then take time to spend on the weekends in a nearby country! Couple of years later, while living in Johannesburg, they discovered they were pregnant so began to look at options of where to have the baby. Erica said she was still traveling to Asia for work a lot then and learned so much about traveling while pregnant. Living as an expat forces you to challenge what you think about "normal", so they spent a lot of time researching and carefully deciding where to have the baby. In the end they were able to find a place that agreed with what they believed in and here they are now, almost 2 years later with a healthy baby girl. Listen to the episode to learn more about their decision to have the baby in South Africa and their experience!

Since then they have gotten to travel all around Europe using Germany as their home base. Her son is in school there on base so it's the same holiday time as her husband. Time, they use strategically to go explore more of Europe. In the last couple of years they've been to 7-10 countries and plan to see a couple more before their contract in Germany is up. Since Europe is close together is makes transportation and getting around more simple. In the past, they've taken the train to Italy and drove to Switzerland twice. Check out her blog for tons of resources (and occasional giveaways!) including an expat guide for living in Germany! Christine shares lots of tools and tips from her experience living in Germany to make the transition a little easier for others.

124- Abroad Life Today on the show we have Tim and Erin from the blog Abroad Life. They are wrapping up a very long family adventure and were able to share some of the highs and lows of a trip like this. The idea for family travels started years ago during an especially snowing winter in Boston where they were living. Life was good...good jobs, nice home, kids were happy, but something told them deep down that they could be doing more. See more. Live a more broad life instead of a narrow one. So what started with an email to a spouse about a "crazy adventure idea" has turned into years of travel with the kiddos while they were young and plans to travel again in the future. On the show they talk about how they managed to quickly went from the "idea" to traveling, working on the road, realistically what it's like to sightsee with toddlers and a good reminder that not all traveling is rainbows and unicorns :)

About 5 years ago Frances and her husband Matt, started getting excited about the idea of living on a sailboat after a vacation, chartering a boat, in the Caribbean with some friends. When they arrived back home they took a hard look at jobs, the house, and life in general and started the dreaming of someday taking an adventure with their family when the kids were more grown. As part of the preparation stage, they realized they were throwing a lot of money into their older home so they sold their house and moved into a much smaller condo to help downsize and save extra for the trip. Listen to the full episode to hear about their experiences while learning to sail, where they've been and their adventures so far as a sailing family!
