Family Adventure Podcast with Erik Hemingway

118- EntreFamily Today on the show we have Stephanie Langford from EntreFamily, currently in Guatemala to talk about how they got involved in family travel years ago and how it's changed to what they do now. Stephanie and her husband had the opportunity to spend a year in Japan as newlyweds which lit the fire under them for future world travel. After finding how they were pregnant and their year in Japan came to a close, they moved back home to Canada, knowing they would prepare for some future travel. Fast forward several years and during the ups and downs of starting their ownbusinesses and life in general. They began to dream of taking 1 year off and with all 5 kids, go live in a new country! As the plan began to grow, it turned into 4 countries in a year, then 10 and when all was said and done, they visited over 30+ countries in 1 year off!! Wow!! Now they have a home base in Canada and take about 3-4 months off and travel a couple countries at once. Preferring the slow paced, live-like-locals-feel verses such a fast paced travel. Stephane shares about the complete change it takes to go travel full time. It's stressful and chaotic and a lot all at once. It forces everyone to learn to live well with the people you love. No one every promised it was easy but what comes through that hardship and challenges is beautiful, strengthen relationships that have really bonded. At that point it becomes more fun, being together and experiencing life simultaneously.
