Solo travel, couples travel, expat travel, family travel, RV travel and digital nomad travel, we've done it all and don't intend on stopping any time soon!
Are you ready to travel more and create better memories?
We're ready to help you!
From Big House to Full Time RV Travel with Kay (Mom Trotter)
This podcast interview is with the inspiring Kay Akpan from the popular Instagram, YouTube, and blog, The Mom Trotter. She is also a writer, speaker and advocate for gentle parenting.
Kay created The Mom Trotter to share her budget travel tips, homeschooling life, parenting as well as to connect with other families following the same path.
Kay joins me to chat who and her husband Sylvester sold their way too big house to buy an RV and put family at the center of their life as they travel full time with their son Aiden.
We chat about overcoming your fears to just do it, life on the road, homeschooling, reducing debt and smart money matters for kids.
I love how Kay embraces our family travel philosophy that travel doesn’t have to stop after kids. Her passion is to empower parents to see how travel with kids is possible and doable as a one income family, stay at home parent or while working a full time job.

Teen Travel and Mother Daughter Trips with Tamara Gruber, We3Travel
Have you ever wondered or feared what it's like to travel with a teen?
Tamara Gruber from We3Travel shares her tips on traveling with a teen and how it can evolve as your family life does.
I've long admired how she has made family travel a focus of her life especially with her mother daughter trips with her teen daughter, Hannah.
Tamara is a marketing professional, travel writer and podcaster. In 2013 she launched We3Travel.com to share her passion for family travel and her detailed trip itineraries and tips to help make planning a family vacation quicker and easier.
Since 2016, she has also been sharing her love of travel as co-host of the Vacation Mavens podcast, offering destination information and tips to get you out the door.
As the mom of a teen, she recognizes the need for women in their midlife to take time for themselves and recently launched YourTimetoFly.com, a travel and lifestyle website for women in their 40s and 50s.

Tips for Living Abroad: Interview with Tim Leffel
Have you ever considered living abroad? Are you looking for a better life for half the price?
There are so many reasons to live abroad, one of the main ones is that it makes the ordinary extraordinary, offers a more immersive travel experience with rich memories, and can often be soooo much cheaper.
If you’re going to be living anyway, you might as well make it cheaper and better right?
In this podcast episode we discuss the benefits and value of living abroad with expat Tim Leffel.
One Week South Florida Road Trip
In this episode, we head to South Florida on a week road trip from the Atlantic Coast to the Gulf Coast and the regions of Martin County, Sebring, and Manasota Key.
You’ll discover enchanting ancient hammocks where Florida panthers still roam, thrill rides on air boat rides through spectacular scenery (and alligators), barrier islands you feel are yours alone to enjoy, the serenity of tucked away rivers, and plenty of fresh and delicious farm to table experiences.
We're BACK! Updates from us
After an almost six month break, we are back recording our travel podcast. We didn’t intend to be away for that long.
We are firm believers in “do the best from where you are with what you have.”
And that was been 2020 for us. Our bandwidth was limited, our stress levels high, and our challenges were numerous.
I guess it just all got to much for us and we took a step back.
Sharing all in our first podcast for 2021

Great Insight Into the Travel Industry and Where It's Going
The Y Travel Podcast is a lot of fun to listen to. Caz and Craig are great story-tellers who obviously know their stuff when it comes to travel. I especially appreciate hearing their insights about where travel is headed during these uncertain times. Highly recommended.
Real and heartfelt commentary about a life of travel and parenting on the road. The episodes aren't stereotypically saccharine where every trip has the polish of an Instagram post. Instead, Caz and Craig genuinely share their family's triumphs, challenges and well-earned expertise.
Awesome Expert Advice And Entertaining! A Must Listen!
Caz and Craig are true travel experts and a joy to learn from and listen to. As a Father of two small ones I love soaking up all of the knowledge they share and admire what they've been able to see and do as a family. You can tell they are having a blast with this podcast making it a fun and easy listen. Keep rocking the mic!
