    Hi Ryan love the idea of not having to sit behind a desk. I am currently working 2 jobs, both sales – not inhouse, but don’t feel fulfilled yet am very passionate about everything i do. I am not a youngster and have no clue how or what to blog. Can you give me an idea of how this works as i find your story very interesting!!

    Great! I love the idea of traveling the world. But any suggestions how to do sth similar with a school kid?

    • Ryan Sletcher

      Hey, Claudia.

      Having kids at school certainly complicate things a bit. The only option is to travel intermittently during their breaks. My family was always home schooled, so location didn’t have much of an impact on us.

    One day I will live like that too 🙂 such a dream! Thanks for the inspiration!!

    P.s. It is very interesting to me to read that you want to be fluent in Portuguese because I am Portuguese 🙂 I think it is a wonderful goal 😀

    Life can be strange at times. I have just come across you page today after saying to my husband over the weekend I would love to pack up and travel our beautiful country South Africa with our kids. We have been looking at all available options to us. We have some interesting bed time reading tonight.
