Do you think you could sell everything and travel the world? That’s what Jason Marshall did. Before this round-the-world trip, Marshall describes himself as a typical corporate guy in America: the job, the business trips, “the SUV and the golden retrievers.” He also had the 50-hour workweek and a son growing up fast. On his son’s birthday, he realized that if he wanted to travel together as a family, he wanted to do it now. And he did, but not without careful planning and organization.

This is an another great interview for family travelers. If you’re still in the early stages, Jason describes the steps he took to plan and prepare. For the more experienced family travelers, he shares some incredible reasons to visit four remarkably diverse locations: the Indian Province of Kerala, Romania in the fall, Rwanda and Panama, where Jason is considering moving his family after their family round-the-world trip.
