My name is Amy, my husband is Mike, and our wonderful children are Lan and Kayden.
Before we had children, Mike and I traveled a lot together. We drove a camper van to Mexico (twice), Guatemala, Belize, America, and across Canada. Then we took almost 10 months for our honeymoon backpacking around South East Asia. It was on our honeymoon, with plans of little ones in the near future, that we decided we wanted to set up a lifestyle where we would travel the world with our family. For the last six years we have been working towards the goal of picking up and leaving the familiar and comfortable life we have in Canada for a life of adventure in the wide world.
We want to teach our children all of the things we learned while traveling. The world is small but wondrous, people are inherently good, materialism should never be a primary goal, and love is living.
Amy is the writer of this blog, mother extraordinaire, and passionate traveler. She loves noodles for breakfast, make-you-think books, going against the grain, and making silly faces. She is a stay-at-home homeschooling mommy who is trying to find that precarious balance of being a good mom without losing herself in the process.
Mike is the kind of guy who can always make you laugh. His witty, satirical humor will always give your stomach muscles a work out. He is a Journeyman Carpenter by trade and loves to build things with his own two hands. He is also an amazingly talented artist and hopes this trip will give him the spare time he needs to explore his art.
Lan is an amazingly bright and spirited boy. He loves to learn about the world, natural disasters, dinosaurs, space, and most importantly Star Wars. He loves building amazing and imaginative things out of Lego and he loves all things spooky!
Kayden loves anything to do with sports. He is the type of boy who longs to be in the great outdoors. He is also our little ‘Dennis the Mennis’ and performs amazing acts of dare devil bravery that sets our hearts racing. He will climb anything and everything without fear of falling (or of mommy completely freaking out!)
