Our family did it. We took our kids out of school, and took 11 months to travel the world. Sometimes I can’t even believe it. I’m still processing it and transitioning home myself. We got back to Kentucky at the end of May 2013.
Our adventures are detailed on our blog but a quick run down is we drove across the USA, Rafted the Colorado River, sold our car in LA. Flew to Guatemala. Lived in Antigua for a glorious Month. Flew to Peru. Visited the Amazon for two weeks, Machu Picchu and Lima. Flew to Fiji. Then Three weeks in New Zealand. Six Weeks in Australia. Bali for Christmas. Kuala Lumpur, Borneo for several weeks. Singapore, then Thailand and then on to Africa. Dubai then Spain. Six weeks in Italy, then Austria, Germany, Holland, France and England.

But if we can do it so can you. We are the typical American family. We are hyper scheduled. Over involved in sports and school activities. We totally believe our business will fall apart without us. And I have a four pound dog that goes with me everywhere. How could I possibly up and leave!!!!
We did. Things all worked out and everything was here when we got back. The details will be different for you. But you can make it happen! What does your dream look like?
