Jack-knifed fuel tanker. Lost tire. Stranded in the desert. Learn from our misadventures before planning your Namibia road trip.
We are an Alabama family with a passion for independent family travel. In 2013, we withdrew our daughters from middle school and traveled around the world. We spent less on our 5 month worldwide adventure than many people spend on cars—and our memories won’t depreciate!
Although our "big trip" is over, we are still exploring. Our blog is full of trip ideas, tips to stretch your travel budget, practical advice, and funny (and not-so-funny) stories about our adventures and misadventures across six continents.
We hope our blog inspires you to pursue your wildest dreams, no matter how unconventional they may be!
