I came onto it researching something and I am just in awe of this couple. What an amazing last few years, they have been everywhere.

Anyway, just wanted to post this for people that have not read about them. I am a little unsure how they afford everything without working but either way whan an amazing life they have traveling around the world.

I guess I'll never understand why people decide to tell the whole world about their lives, as if anyone really cares.

Not to mention giving enough information, including pictures, to tell any pedophile where their child is. It just boggles the mind.

^^ I can see your point, but from thier website I don't think they give out to much info. I know they are from MN and visit family often.

They do it because people like to read about it...and because they can, and almost certainly do, earn money by blogging and selling ad space on their site.

I think they've had some amazing adventures so far and truly envy their ability to just go and do the stuff they've done. It'll be interesting to see if or how the baby changes their outlook on life. They were sure quick to jump back to the States with the first medical issue (not that I blame them).

My wife and I have visited about as many countries/regions together. We took public transportation and lived/traveled with the locals while this couple stuck to using their own boats and cars.

Two different philosophies, one common goal.

Traveling doesn't cost that much, just like living, if you divest yourself of all the expensive trappings and just go with the basics. The amount of money you can make in a short time in the USA can carry you through years and years of world travel. If you have your own lodging (a VW or sailboat) you can pretty much live on pennies a day.

Interesting couple but they bash MN every chance they get, basically calling them dumb for staying there because it gets cold. I live in SOcal right now and it's not Gods country like they decribe it. Weather is nice of course but it's not everything.
