EER 019: Alyson Long from World Travel Family

Alyson Long is part of a truly World Travel Family. In June 2013, she and her two young sons left her adoptive home of Port Douglas, Australia with one-way tickets to Malaysia. Her husband caught up with them soon after, and since then the family has been through Southeast Asia, India and Sri Lanka, the Americas and Europe, using London as a place to sort out various work and family obligations.
