Originally from Montana they left life behind so explore Europe while their kids are at the perfect age!  They share about they route and countries they've visited as well as how they've adjusted to life on the road with work and school. Getting to spend about a month or so in some amazing countries Italy, Croatia, Germany, Slovenia, England, Scotland and more.  All this has been such an education for their kids and also allowed the family to be able to connect in an incredible way.

Today on the show we have Kate Pratt to tell us about her families travels and recent cross-country move across the U.S. Kate and her husband have travelled in the past before having their daughter, Laurel, but Kate shares how their view on life altogether has changed since having Laurel. They realized they were on the path that most people start down of trying to "check all the boxes" until they realized they wanted something less "normal" and to live a bigger life. While their daughter is still young they enjoy traveling as much as they can locally in their new home in Oregon- sightseeing what's around them and experience what they can day trips or long weekends away.

Today on the show we have Joe and Noela from {Lost and Loving it} sharing about their current trip throughout Australia! This family is not new to the family travel scene. Joe said their first trip overseas was in 2003, with about one big trip every year since then and the kids haven't slowed that down one bit.  This year in January, Noela pushed them all to make a plan for some full time travel.  Although Joe says it took him longer to get used to the idea and get on board,  75 days later they hit the road! Whew! Currently traveling Australia coast by camper they said they do have backpacks incase they decide they want to be a bit more mobile and leave the camper behind.  Be sure to listen to the full episode to hear about how they work out the finances while on the go, and how they've discovered that it actually costs them LESS to travel full time!
