The film is here! The film is here! The film is here! If you’ve followed this blog since the beginning (the very first post was on April 26, 2008) then you might remember this site’s tagline was once: “Quit Your Job. Travel the World.” A little context: Tim Ferriss’ NYT best selling book the 4 Hour Workweek had just come out a year earlier; I was one of the first people to do take his advice: Drew and I sold our house, saved like mad for a year, and took the big, scary leap to living abroad and working for ourselves. The first…

  Drew and I were reunited two weeks ago, in a scene that was less climatic then we both imagined. It had been three months apart, and as the date approached I wondered how the kids would take it. The exact conversation with my two-year old, Stella: Me: Daddy is coming in four days. Stella: Yeah four days. Daddy is coming in four days? Me: Yes! What are you going to do when he comes? Hug him? Stella: Yes hug him. Me: And give him a kiss? Stella: Yes give him a kiss. Me: What else? Stella: I am going to…

This project is massive.

This is about my upcoming workshop, something I’ve been working on for a long time. It’s a theme that has come up for me again and again. I’m a blogger, but I’ve also crowd funded a documentary. Then we traveled around the world interviewing two dozen people across five continents. I’m a blogger but I’m also a writer. I came up with an idea for a book, got a literary agent in NYC, sat down and wrote a proposal over four months, then sold my book idea. Then we traveled to China to learn Mandarin, to Beirut to learn Arabic, and to Mexico to…

I recently got an email asking, “How does it really, REALLY work out? The whole traveling with young children thing? How does it feel? How do you ever get time to just sit down and breathe? Do you??” Sit down. Grab a cup of coffee. I will tell you. The first thing to understand is that traveling with children is essentially no different from being at home with them. So if you find living with your children overwhelming, it’s not going to get less overwhelming on the road. For me, it’s really important that I’m not always “on” with my kids. I…
