    I would LOVE to do this! How do you afford it? I am a single mom, already homeschooling and work from home. How does one support themselves while traveling for years?

    Love this! I really like that you look at an older man with his ‘time for adventure’ behind him, and contrast it with your son – who has many experiences ahead of him! Lucky boy 🙂

      Well, I wouldn’t say my time for adventure is behind me. I’m just putting his needs above mine since these are such important years for a child. I’m not done adventuring. 😉

    Your son looks like a content lad these days … all that world travel has set him up for a great life in the years ahead!

      He’s a happy guy. Always has been. It will be interesting, though, to see more fully how this life has affected him in the long term.

    Can I take the easy way out and just say DITTO! 🙂 We feel exactly the same way and were asked that question over and over on our recent visit to the USA (after almost 3 yrs away). When we see how our kids have matured and think more openly, it is amazing. It is almost as if the fear hasn’t been instilled in them yet. The fear of failing can’t exist for us. We just keep trying until something works and that is how we model things. I think fear is what holds most people back and they will rationalize why it can’t be done! Kudos to you on your 1500 days!

      I very much agree with your comment about fear. It’s so paralyzing! And thanks for the congrats!

    Very moving and life-affirming. You are giving your son (and yourself) gifts in the form of experiences that will never end, as all travel is internalized over time and part of an endless initiation into the sacred, independence, imagination, and the character-building.

    If my parents had not had me on the road almost my entire childhood through my teens, I would not be who I am, with such a strong sense of identity, with such a curiosity, love of the other, and empathy.

    Congratulations on teaching your child to think beyond our shores, beyond isolationism, beyond conformity…

    Bravo! I love this so much – because it is crystal clear in priorities – and global acceptance. Congrats on the 1500 days – that’s amazing!
