We are a family from the south side of Portland, Oregon, planning to head out in September 2013 on a Round the World trip with our two elementary boys, ages 6 and 10. Β  They love adventure and have done enough traveling of their own to know how exciting and fun this whole idea will be for all of us.

We plan to start in Japan in September and make our way through SE Asia first.

    Wow, congrats on the great news about your business. I definitely understand the hard decision around keeping or selling the house, as well as telling the family (though I image it would be even harder to break the news with grandkids in the mix).

    So fun! I just found your blog courtesy of Family Adventure Podcast. We are a family of 4 who sold our house and took off to travel with our kids for a year through Europe in our American RV that we shipped over. And now, we live in Portland! I can’t wait to read your entire blog and see if we were in some of the same places.

    Hello Kim. Recently saw your presentation at the Alderwood REI and I really enjoyed it. It got me thinking about how to make the same change in my life. I would greatly appreciate an opportunity to get more information from you and hear more of your recommendations.
