Having a remote job has been something I had prayed about for years now. Giving us the freedom to live and travel anywhere our hearts desire.
Nashville! Donnie has been there but we haven't...so I'm super excited to see the country music capital of the world!
Oh....and we're camping! Yeah! Again! Eek! Well...right now that's the way we roll with a limited budget. A couple tents, a few air mattresses, a cooler, blankets, flashlights.....yeah...I think we can make do for 10 days of travel.
I just love the fact of picking up and just going. We can literally travel anywhere now that Donnie has this new job and the kids now homeschooling. Being location independent is our desire. To spark our vision, we went scoping out RVs....looking at sizes and what can endure the cross country lifestyle.
Yeah...we're nuts! But seriously...why live so conventionally when you can literally explore the world with your little "abode" in tow!
Hmm...Could it be so that within this next year we could be touring the states?? I hope so! The kids are ready...I'm ready. We gotta do it since the kids are believing for this way of living.
Kole is begging for a camera so he can start his travel vlog. He said it'll be called "Dreamer: Adventures of a 10 year old boy who travels the world with his family." This made this mommy heart smile.
All of this traveling talk with the kids has taken me back to my childhood. I remember the times my dad would take us camping and when we drove across the states to San Diego. It also brings back memories of when I was really little living in Chile.
I lived there from birth to about 6 years old. I clearly remember swinging on the squeaky old swing which hung right at the entrance of my grandparents garden nestled in their back yard. This garden smelled of mint and was filled with big juicy blackberries. This quaint little place faced the Strait of Magellan.
This beautiful view was located 4 blocks from my grandparents home, my mother's childhood home...my first home.
Oh and I'll never forget about that shooting star....Oh yes...the one I cried over because I knew it had fallen out of the sky but couldn't find it on the ground.
Oh...all those lovely memories.
The more real and vivid memories are of us traveling. I remember staying at hostels in Santiago. As I got a little older, I dreamed of becoming a flight attendant.
Oh the memories.
Now it's time to help my kids make some of their own traveling memories.
Onward we go...Not sure where our adventures will lead us. I'm already planning for our Christmas getaway. And hoping to stay longer this time.
Thinking up North again. I hope this time we experience a lot of snow.
I am so thankful we have the freedom and flexibility to be able to work on the road.
