Our full-time family travels inspire others to adventure together at home and away
We’ve always moved to our own beat. Then we started a family.
Some people say that when you have kids, you put your dreams on hold. We decided that having kids meant helping them learn how you make your dreams come true, big and small, every day.
Now, we are the Learners and Makers. Through travel, homeschool, and more, our everyday adventures combine lifelong learning and joyful making. We make our destinies and guide our kids as they learn to make theirs.
Jodie is a photographer, video editor, and social media manager; she is also an amputee who uses a prosthetic leg. Anthony is a writer and videographer. Our school-aged children, Connor and Aster, bring curiosity, vivacity, and insight to every trip. Traveling as a family inspires us and helps us inspire others!
Family travel, slow travel, and accessible travel
Our travels are wide ranging. We’ve spent weeks road-tripping and popup camping throughout California and the US West. We’ve wandered Oaxaca, from the city and nearby ruins, to the calm beaches of Huatulco. Our travels in Asia so far have included Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, and Japan. You might also catch us RVing in a Class C motorhome from coast to coast of the USA. Wherever we go and however we get there, we value:
- Traveling as a family
- Outdoor adventures: hiking, camping, and more
- Flatwater kayaking
- Accessible travel/accessibility for visitors with mobility impairments
- US and global/RTW family travel
- FOMO-free slow travel
