Ermageeeeerd its travel time 😂😂😂😂 #bestphotoever We're packing down to get back on the road today and so far we've found a massive slash in a truck tire and have had to drop it off for a repair (meaning a trip back to pick it up), the dog ripped a bag of rubbish to shreds, and its so cold I can't feel my fingers. Other than that things are going just fine 🙄😂 I'll add clips into stories of our packing down process over the morning, let me know if you have any specific questions 🤷🏻‍♀️

We have a floor 💃🏼🎉✨ So the sub floor consists of 50x50mm treated timber batons laid across the width of the bus. 50mm foil-backed insulation board laid in between the batons and all the joins sealed with a foil tape. And then a layer of 18mm tongue and groove chipboard glued and screwed into the batons. We just have to decide on the final layer of flooring now. So many choices 🤩🤔

Waking up by the beach, with emerald blue waters everyday, now that’s our idea of a LIFE GOAL ✨

⁣ We are doing it! 👊🏼⠀⁣ ⠀⁣ For the last 3 days we spent a few hours each morning mapping out camping spots for our RV, home swaps and even a hotel stay.⠀⁣ ⠀⁣ Because we are hittin’ the road. 💛⠀⁣ ⠀⁣ And that is all it took. ⠀⁣ ⠀⁣ 6 hours of planning & a little elbow grease in the coming days to get everything ready.⠀⁣ ⠀⁣ Oh....and the thought, “We can do this. We can definitely make this work.”⠀⁣ ⠀⁣ Of course, of course, we could have said, “We don’t have enough time to plan.”⠀⁣ ⠀⁣ “All the camp sites are already booked where we want to go.”⠀⁣ ⠀⁣ Or, my usual, “We reallllly wanted to head somewhere warm and beachy... everything that is working out is up north, without a beach in site.”⠀⁣ ⠀⁣ But it all just kinda fell into place. ⠀⁣ ⠀⁣ 4 weeks. 7 stops. 41 hours of highway driving. 🚐 ⠀⁣ ⠀⁣ So, we are rolling with it.⠀⁣⁣ ⠀⁣ I will give you the low down on how we prep for a big trip like this! Hint: I like easy. 🙌🏻⠀⁣ ⠀⁣ But if you are thinking you might take a road trip this summer & wanna know what made planning simple, check out the blog post where I lay it all down. (Link in bio.)⠀⁣ ⠀ T minus 3 days & counting.⠀

During our travels, sometimes we have to go back home. We try to have this coincide with end of year concerts for this girl if possible. She loves playing violin and we owe a huge THANKS to the @untstringproject for working with us virtually to allow her to continue learning. . If you’re a Fulltime Family or homeschooler, this program could be a great resource for a child who plays a string instrument. . Do your kids have musical talent? What instrument do they play? . #music #musician #musiceducation #violin #violinist #violinista #distancelearning #collegeprogram #universityofnorthtexas #stringproject #untstringproject #virtuallearning #roadschooling #homeschool #homeschooling #homeschoollife #worldschoolers #concert #musicalinstruments #stringinstrument #stringinstruments #fulltimefamilies #rvlife #nomad #nomads #nomadiclife #nomadicfamily #travelblogs #waybeyondthenorm

Bumps first home! 🚌✨ Well it will be, if we can get it finished before October 😂😂 Also one day maybe I’ll learn to keep my eyes open for a photograph #igetitfrommymomma 😅

Oh Noah, I never knew I could love a little human so much until I had you 💙 | Don’t get me wrong, we have our days where there’s non stop tantrums and tears and I could honestly cry with frustration and curse every word under the sun. Nobody tests my patience like you, and nobody has ever pushed the limit like you, but my god I’ve never loved anyone like you either. Parenting definitely is not a walk in the park, but there are moments when you are just so grateful to be blessed with a little best friend and this person who wakes up at 3am calling for you. It’s such a whirlwind relationship that you will only ever understand when you become parent, now I’m just worried and anxious about becoming a family of 4 and adjusting to splitting my time between two babies. Any advice from fellow mamas of 2 or more much appreciated! 🦋

Celebrating a new era. An era where I can send the kids to go play outside, down by the creek where I don’t see them or hear them and be sure that they’re just fine. Not checking up on them, just sitting here without a worry in the world. Well almost, but still not going to go check on them every five minutes.

Japan is showing us so many different faces! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We visited friends in Karuizawa and discovered lots of cool spots, the perfect mix of style and heritage all blended into this striking greenery which surrounds everything here! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We couldn’t leave without a pic in front of this cute airstream 😁 the lake was full of frogs singing their love songs and we spotted so many tadpoles, Oliva asked to take some with us 🤣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Rainy season is around the corner and spring is showing us the yearly rebirth of nature in all its glory... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ——————————————⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #theroamingbananas #unconventionalliving #livinginjapan #famigliainviaggio #embracingslowerlife #nomadicfamily #fulltimetraveler #ig_japan #karuizawa #nomadiclifestyle #exploringjapan #explorejapan #japanlovers #travelingfamily #slowtravel #japan #nomadiclife #travelwithus #japantravelphoto #traveladdicts #travelfamily #japanview #japan_vacations #japantraveler #digitalnomads #japanadventures #japanstagram #nipponlovers #travelinspiration #familytravel

We have a small RV, so we extend our space outside via portable shelters. We’ve used the Gazelle and Clam extensively, and recently posted our thoughts.

Carter is about 3 weeks away from graduating the 5th grade! 🥳 There won’t be a formal graduation but we WILL have a celebration! ✨We know that parents all over the world have been forced into homeschooling their children due to the pandemic. 😕Even though we intentionally enrolled in a online school 3 years ago, I still remember what our first year was like! 😩 We want you to know that we completely understand how difficult the transition can be when you’re adjusting from a brick and motor school and job. Thankfully there are resources and amazing Facebook groups that help significantly! Connecting with people and establishing a community that supports your lifestyle choice is EVERYTHING! I can only suggest what I personally have experience with and I’d recommend the following resources that we’ve used to get you started: @connectionsacademy For parents that still want their children to have the daily structure already planned out, supplies provided such as textbooks or computers, a teacher to connect with, live lessons and a grade point scale. . . @wildschooling on Facebook If you wish to unschool your child and let them run wild daily. We enjoy a combination of both homeschooling lifestyles that don’t involve being inside all day. . . @fulltime_families fulltime_families Is a great resource to connect with RV families and make friends that just GET IT. When your family and friends are against your life on wheels or reasons for homeschooling, you’ll forget all about their opinions when you post in this group. Lol . . . We do have some exciting news! This summer, we will be unlocking our @offthegridwithakid Facebook group to help familes achieve a nomadic lifestyle similar to ours now or in the past when we were on planes instead of wheels. You won’t want to miss the resources, updates, events, and the friends you’ll make in the group! ❤️ Even though the group is not live yet, you can find the group on Facebook NOW! Please request to join so that we can all enter on the same day this summer.❤️(link in bio) . . . #vanlife#homeschool#education#lifestyle#nomadicfamily#kids#traveling#adventure#community#freedom#flexibility#mobility#happiness

The best little helper 🥰 We’ve been trying to decide whether or not to find out baby’s gender at our scan in 2 weeks. Ellis wants it to be either a boy or a train. Mostly a train though 🚂😅 There definitely isn’t a train in there 😆

Snapped this shot of @atgreengables while we were working yesterday. Been advised more than once in the past few weeks of what a beautiful office we work in. Yes. Yes it is, and I am thankful and grateful every day! 🙌🙂✌🐐 ... .. . #getoutside #rei1440project #wanderlust #lovelifeoutside #beautifuldestinations #goexplore #wildernessculture #makemoments #simplyadventure #outdoors #adventureculture #everytrailconnects #getoutstayout #wander #nature #liveyouradventure #featuredtravelers #sourcedadventures #hiking #trail #hikelife #hike #hikevibes #hikertrash #ushikers #washington #waterfall #pnw #rvlife #nomadicfamily

The best way to ride a zipline... the wrong way around 😂⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We visited the kid’s ninja village in Togakushi and we now have a ninja lover! Such a great place to teach kids about ninjas, plus there was a cool little museum with lots of vintage memorabilia, old mangas, posters and toys. This we loved this last part more than the kids 😅⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #theroamingbananas #unconventionalliving #japantravel #nagano #embracingslowerlife #nomadicfamily #fulltimetraveler #dreambiglivetiny #vanlifeexplorers #nomadiclifestyle #exploringjapan #thisisvanlifeing #japanlovers #travelingfamily #slowtravel #freshairandfreedom #nomadiclife #travelwithus #japantravelphoto #traveladdicts #travelfamily #livetoexplore #japan_vacations #athomeintheworld #digitalnomads #borntotravel #wondermore #vanlifejapan #travelinspiration #familytravel

Kai and me spent half a day together at our favourite beach, nearest to us, which is Cabarita beach. And we built this beautiful sandcastle. And completely lost sense of time. We were present, one with the sand the waves and the wind. Good times🌊🌊🌊☀️☀️☀️ . . . . . #lovelife #unschooling #1000hoursoutside #travelaustraliawithkids #nomadicfamily #travellingfamily #travelwithkids #travellingaustraliawithkids #veganfamily #outdoorsfamily #slowliving #slowlifestyle #sandcastle #beachdweller #naturelover #vanlife
