Welcome Y'all!

We are an Alabama family with a passion for independent global travel. A few years ago, we ditched middle school to travel around the world. We spent less on our 5 month global adventure than many people spend on cars--and our memories won't depreciate!

Our mission is to help other families travel boldly. Our motto:

No Travel Agent. No Tour Group. No Trust Fund. No Problem!

Whether you are planning a two-week vacation, or a family gap year, we're here to help! Follow along for trip ideas, budget tips, practical advice, and funny (and not-so-funny) stories from traveling the world.

Your kids only have one childhood...make it one to remember!
