Our story!

For several years now I have had the urge to travel which has been a dream of mine before marriage and children. My husband was never keen on the idea until one afternoon in 2016 he said, "let's do this!" The next day I began to sell, donate and give away items from my home. He was a bit shocked when he got home from work. I immediately called a realtor and our home sold within 24 hours for more than we were asking. I had sold, donated and given away EVERYTHING so that the day we moved we didn't even need a truck. We were able to drive away with everything we had left in both our vehicles. We moved to a smaller place directly across from the beach to enjoy the sunrise and sunsets for the following year before taking off to travel full time!

A Typical Travel Day in Europe!

Traveling from Portugal to Spain using all the public transportation that is available. It looks daunting but was actually very doable and economical. The flight from one country to the other is as cheap as $34. Bus rides are around $4. Taxis have cost us between $5 and $10. They are safe and very clean in both these countries and it is just easier for us not to have the hassle of our own transportation!

Hop On Hop Off Bus in Portugal

This is something we do in any large city in Europe and the United States. It is one of the best ways to learn the history and provides great service in getting around easily. We highly recommend this if you are visiting Lisbon, Portugal!

Arriving to Portugal

Third day to travel is a taxi ride to the hotel, room service and sleeping off the jet lag!

Travel Day 2 How We Travel Overseas!

Travel Day 2 to Portugal! We break it up to help with jet lag and it is less stressful not to deal with traffic of any large city where you fly internationally. Tap Portugal is our favorite airline to fly to Europe. The prices are cheaper, the food and drink is wonderful and they are very helpful!

Travel Day 1 to Europe

Everyone keeps asking how do we go from traveling in the RV to traveling overseas. We like to have 2 full days to catch an airplane in Miami. As my mother often says, just in case a circus elephant is in the road. You never know what the traffic will be like and who wants all that stress? We have learned to do this in a way that is economical and less stressful for us.  Right now we have just finished a wonderful dinner and already have our pj’s on. This video recaps our first travel day!

Miami is our choice to travel overseas because we hit a few snags of cancellations when we flew from Newark. Also, the best prices we find on google flights.com are always out of Miami. We usually find round trip tickets to Europe for about $400 or less. The best time to travel there is anytime except the summer when all of Europe is also on vacation. I prefer the spring because weather is wonderful!

This video is how we travel in order to avoid severe jet lag overseas....
