We are really just a normal family from Indiana who decided to do something different for a year.
August 10, 2013, the adventure began. We are travelling for 10 months with 3 sometimes 4 of our children. The ones traveling with us now are Arden (15), Scarlet (12) and Brody (9). Our journey started in Franklin, Indiana. This blog chronicles each day as we travel through the States in an RV and then through Europe. In Europe we will be joined by our oldest, Brenna (19). We’d love to visit (and mooch off of) friends and family in our travels. Since our departure we have travelled through Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon and California, Arizona, Utah, Colorado and New Mexico. Along the way we have been blessed with over 20 homestays with friends and family. We are now travelling through Texas with plans to make it in time for Christmas in Florida before heading back home around January 2014. On February 6th we will be joined by our oldest daughter, Brenna (19) and fly to Budapest. The next few months we will be in Europe and enjoy backpacking, hostels, and the rail system. Follow along as the journey is documented!
