Downsizing and Saving for Full Time​ Travel with a Family. How this Colorado Family Made the Leap.

For years I have been fascinated with the idea of full-time travel. It’s the main reason why I decided to homeschool my youngest children. I wanted them to see the world beyond our front door. For us, downsizing our family was a potential first step. But what are other families doing to plan and prepare for a life of full-time travel with a family? This Colorado family made the leap into full-time travel in 2018 and haven’t looked back. I got the chance to interview them to learn more about how they downsized, saved and planned in order to make their dreams a reality.

Minimize Travel Stress with One Bag Packing for the Whole Family

When asked, travelers said that the planning stage of travel was the most stressful part of a vacation, especially the packing. This should be a chance to relax, unwind, and have fun, so find ways to cut down stress wherever possible. If you are a mom packing for her husband and kids, then the packing struggle is even more real. Therefore, consider embracing minimalism. Even if you have three or four children, one bag packing is possible. Cutting stress in this area allows you to spend more time planning activities, so you and the family can really enjoy your trips together.

10 US Travel Destinations (That No One is Talking About.)

I admit it, my favorite past-time is scouring the internet for affordable U.S. travel destinations. Tom and I let our passports lapse last year because we knew the next adventures we wanted to take (after paying off our debt) were the ones located in the good ‘ol U.S. of A. After a visit to the Dominican Republic a few years ago, we felt kind of silly when the tourists there from Ireland and the Netherlands rattled off long lists of the places they were dying to see in the U.S. Here we were with all of these amazing sites and festivals all around us and we weren’t even taking advantage of them. Now, of course, there are big hot spots most people know like LA and NYC…but what about the rest of the country? I’m quickly learning there are a ton of US travel destinations that no one is talking about! So, I’m here to break the cycle and start filling you in on all the places you might be missing out on America.
