We have been in the midst of researching, sorting through belongings, getting passports; I'm in the middle of a personal development and leadership course; and we have our families wondering what the hell we're doing with our lives.
So, in light of all that, I'm going to give out some information that we are using to make our decisions. There is an absolute plethora of information to be found about traveling with your family; this is the mere tip of the iceberg. But it might answer some questions you have.
I will be here more frequently now, reporting on exactly what this journey looks like for us. For now, you can be inspired by some of these:
