Family Adventure Podcast with Erik Hemingway

Today on the show we have Kristin, originally from Australia now happily living in Switzerland (close to Zurich) with her Swiss husband and 3 kids. What started out as chance to see the world, now 14 years later has turned into an epic family adventure. Kristin shares how minimalism has helped them keep traveling. We've all been there trying to cram the suitcase full of things you *might* need. Simplifying what they pack and travel with has made it easy to get away on the weekends and not feel overwhelmed by trying to take a trip.  Listen to the episode to hear about their next idea for an adventure! *hint* it includes a VW bus ;)

Today on the show we have Photographer couple Jake and Dannie talking to us from in venice on month 5 of one year adventure.  Back a year ago when they were living and working in Florida they decided to take some time off from their business and explore while Lisa was still little as well as a chance to develop and play with new photography skills.  Before this big trip they had done some traveling before, including a big trip to China after they got married along with some road trips up and down the East Coast of the US. With this one year off adventure they are doing things a bit different, mainly by taking it slow. They plan about 3 months ahead but remain flexible if locations or other variables come up.  By mostly staying in Air B&B for longer (usually weeks to a month) it let's them get a chance to really see the city and not feel like they have to rush and see it all in a day. Make sure to listen to the whole episode to hear about some of their highlights from the trip so far!

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.
