Welcome Y'all!

We are an Alabama family with a passion for adventure and cultural travel. We ditched school (twice) to give our daughters a global education using the world as our classroom.

From Iceland to Thailand—the Great Wall of China to the Great Barrier Reef—we share how to plan extraordinary adventures on an ordinary budget.

Our mission:  Getting other families out of their bubble and into the world.

Our motto: No trust fund. No tour group. No problem!

Whether you are planning a two-week vacation, or a family sabbatical, 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!
