110- Summer Sailing Adventure Today on the show we have Rasmus Jensen who interviewed with us in the beginning of 2016 during our big break. We thought the interview had been deleted but were excited to find it on an old memory card! They set out on an awesome adventure and we're glad Rasmus took the time to tell us all about it. Before they started on their summer trip, Rasmus went to look at boats to purchase. They figured this would be a good way to travel and have a "home base" travel along with you. He said all it took was 1 step on the right boat to know it was the one for them and within an hour he started the paper work to purchase. They left their home in Denmark as an Air B&B out their house and used that money and also his work as an independent illustrator to left them travel throughout the summer of 2015. The kids at that time were 6, 7, and 10 years old. He says the trip wasn't all smooth sailing but living on a boat or full-time travel like that forces you to deal with problems as they arise.

Their family travels began a couple of years ago when they decided to House swap their home in Utah with a Military family from D.C. During the 18 day road trip to get to D.C., they decided they wanted to do this full time. Live life on the road. A more simple and slow life to explore the world around them. Didn't know all the details yet but wanted to pursue that. Once arriving in D.C. and within 2 months got an airstream and a truck and were ready to hit the road!

108 - Were is the World Kyla from Where is the World joins us on the show to talk about why she travels with her family and some of the cool places they've experienced including over 5 weeks in West Africa with no electricity or running water where they stayed. She shares about how they enjoy places of the beaten path, 3rd world countries and non-touristy places where they're all forced out of their comfort zones. This helps the kids learn how to be flexible in any situation She writes on their blog "This doesn’t mean we never go to more traditional travel locales, we find an excuse to go to Paris whenever we can! It just means making an effort to travel to places a little less typical and a little less touristy." Read More on our site @FamilyAdventurePodcast.com

105- 3 Kids Travel

Today on the show we welcome Elise who shares about their family traveling adventures! 

Currently they take trips from a home base with hope of someday (soon!) going out for more extended periods of travel or possibly a year or 2 off! 

The kids are luckily immersed in a dual- enrollment school where they live, because of that the kids are now able to speak Spanish fluently and connect with others around the world who maybe don't speak English! What a great opportunity for the kids and how useful it will become later on down the road and throughout their traveling! 

Listen to the podcast for more details about stories about places they've seen, how to work while traveling and How the kids do with traveling so often!

104- Salty Kisses Today on the show we've got Carl + Carly from the blog SaltyKisses to talk mainly about their sailing adventure through the NorthWest Passage. Up and over the world! What a cool adventure to be able to see a part of the world few people travel to. At one point they were only 900 away from the North Pole! Since wrapping up that trip last year, they've bought a different boat (not a steal one like they needed for the North) currently in St. Maartin and have spent the time fixing it up to head into the Caribbean and see a bit more of the islands.

Our Life is a Trip! Today we are joined by Tracy from Our Life is a Trip and they've got a pretty sweet set up! Her husband works as a firefighter & Tracy works as a flight attendant by day and in return gets free flights for the family (Learn more in the episode!)!! On their time off they have gone to some pretty amazing places. The kids do great and even the little ones on occasion will beg to get out traveling again if they've been at home for to long ;) While on the move, Tracy says they stick to a more unschooling approach to school...allowing the kids to pursue their niches and favorite hobbies like videography or art while on the move. However, they're also enrolled in a charter school back home in California that works with their constant travel plans.

Today we are joined by author, AK Turner! AK and her husband traveled extensively before having kids. They have the same idea as so many others, to continue traveling just as often, even after the kids were born. They currently are based in the States and take several extended trips per year to different parts of the world, usually 1-3 months at a time.
