Most people don’t consider long-term travel with a baby, but Andrew and Tanya Davis are not most people.

Year Two: An Epic Education Cultural Identity Update

When we first set out on this adventure in September, 2013, one of the biggest questions I asked myself was how a life of travel would affect my children’s cultural identity, and possibly my own.

As August flies by, we get ever closer to our first anniversary of full-time family travel.

Chiang Mai Fishing – Fun Day with Kids in Thailand

As I’ve previously mentioned, there is plenty of things to do in Chiang Mai with Kids. My personal favorite activity was our fruit carving lesson, but if I ventured to guess the kids’ favorite, it would likely be our trip in Chiang Mai fishing.
