Are you a young (25-40) parent, with kid(s) under two years old that wants to travel the world? Then we want you to join us.
We’re new parents. Our daughter, Olivia, just turned four months old. As you know, the shift to parenthood is a dramatic one. Life changes. It’s suddenly difficult to relate to those without kids—it’s impossible to understand the intensity of the passion and devotion you have for this child, and the shift in priorities, until you’re faced with it.
But on the other end, many parents are caught up in the hustle and bustle of status quo life. They’re content to burn the hours of the day on a decent job, to buy a decent house, to get the kids in a decent school, and to find a two weeks a year to forget about the the other 50.
Nothing against it, the average life has just never been for us.
Parents outside the box
We’re not sure where it will all go, but we’re intent on breaking the mold:
1. We’re going to retire by 40—not to never work again, but to leave the 9-to-5 life for a couple years. Yes, to travel the world. Maybe we’ll end up back where we started. But I doubt it. Either way, it will be a journey to never forget.
2. We’re going to be homeschool travelers. If it goes to plan, Olivia will be about 7 when we kick off our journey—just in time to be starting her studies. We have a lot of work to do to be able to pull it off, but it will be quite a start to her education to see the world.
3. We’re going to find a life without borders. I’m thankful for my 9-to-5. It has and will continue to serve me well. But it’s a chain to an old life. The world is transforming before our eyes and there is endless opportunity for those who seek it. We want a life free from borders. Where a stop in Buenos Aires, or Hong Kong, is no different than a weekend in Seattle. We want to be able to live and work anywhere.
Do you want to join us?
I’m sure you’ve heard, “Get used to your life now, it’ll be that way for another 18 years.” That’s nonsense.
Our children are a blessing, and one we must honor by teaching them passion for life. Without kids this would be easy. But with kids, the payoff is so much bigger.
