Where We Roam!
After a series of life events, Scott and Emily kinda felt they were being pushed toward traveling in a big way. They came up with the idea to spend 12 months in 12 countries, wanting to live like a native of that country. Curious to explore the world and learn what it would be like to live in the country and not just “tour” it.
They said it was enlightening to see how others live and enjoy the small details in everyday life while living out of 36 Liter backpacks. However, right before they left on the trip they got pregnant. So they pushed off the trip just until after the baby was born and then head out!! They relied hugely on Airline Miles and ending up flying all their major flights with points they had earned. Scott goes into great details about using airline miles on their blog –> here!
Emily says it’s fun now to look back and see the milestones that her daughter is reaching compared to their son. Like first foods in Thailand, first starting walking in England, etc
Once they got back to the States they didn’t just jump back into a “white- picked- fence- Life” like they thought they would when they were traveling. They decided to see a bit more of the States while they were in the traveling mode when an old city bus kinda fell into their laps. They had fun renovating and are now enjoying life on the road!!
