Long term travel absolutely fascinates me. To actually know and see families doing it and on a budget is even more exciting! It means that it doesn’t have to be just a dream anymore! It is achievable and there are many families out there doing it showing us the way.
Long term travel is becoming a more acceptable way of life now providing possibly the best education a child can get and so many are now doing or considering it!
In some cases, the families have sold off all their worldly belongings and headed off overseas for long term travel to explore the world together as a family, and on a budget, not knowing what the future holds!
So just how do these families do it? How do they plan for an adventure like this? How do they support this amazing lifestyle? We ask all the burning questions that you are yearning to know the answers to about long term travel, especially with kids!
