    147- Sons of Adventure

    Today on the show we have Kate from {Sons of Adventure} to share all about their adventuring around Australia and the outdoor hiking their family love to do!  Kate and her husband Scott have been together for 19 years and have always enjoyed the outdoors so when they had the boys, very close in age, they naturally started slowly exploring the outdoors as the kids got older. Recently, they just finished The Yuraygir Coastal Walk, which for them was a 5 day hike and for 2 of the boys it was their first overnight hike/multiway hike. It was located on the coast which made it a simple hike as far as variation in altitude and an easy one to start out before choosing some more challenging hikes later this next year.   Kate shares a lot of great advice for families who may be overwhelmed by the ida of taking on a massive family full-time adventure and encourages families to adventure when and where they can. She also talks about some of the cool benefits she's seen in the boys as a result of getting out there and explore and what can do for their character and outlook on life.

    Today on the show we have Linn and David from {Home Free Family} who have recently made the move to travel full time! David used to be in the military and they would travel in and around their homeland of Australia any chance or break they could get. When he retired last year they loved the freedom of finally moving into life on the move. 
     
    After planning and preparation, they began to realize it would be cheaper from them to travel full time vs. living day to day life in Australia, that made the decision to go a little bit more easy. We have heard this from several families on the show and think it's a great encouragement if you're on the fence about the finances. 
     
    They share a lot about what they do for schooling on the move or "worldschooling" and why that's been so great for their kids and why it works for them. They also share several tid-bits about backpack travel through Southeast Asia so if you're headed that way....make sure to listen to the episode all the way through!

Surprised to hear that so many families are like us!

We always thought we were weird. The ones that were living small so we could live big! Travel has always been a priority for our family. Our first road trip was coast to coast with our 10 week old. Then we hopped on a plane a month later and her our little family to Europe. We haven’t stopped since. After listing to your podcast we are researching sailing. You have inspired us even after all our adventures. Thank you for offering that spark to families of all levels.

Binge worthy

At first I was skeptical, but by my third show I was hooked. He is a great interviewer and the stories are amazing. I am not about to go on a year long trip with my family, but we are exploring the wonders of our area more.
