What can a full-time family do during a pandemic?

We’ve had several people reach out to us to check in and see how we’re dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic and how it is affecting our lives as full-time travelers. The short answer is we’re working through many of the same challenges that everyone else is facing, and getting through it day-by-day just like everyone else.

That said, there are some unique challenges that we’re facing while on the road during this crazy time, and we wanted to share some updates and thoughts regarding our experience – for those of you that just love us and want to know we’re safe (❤️) and to hopefully help some other full-timers know we’re out here supporting you.

Reset – the journey so far, connecting, and the state of this blog.

When we started this journey of full-time travel, we had a lot of expectations of what it would be like. Some of those expectations were met, we had some surprises and setbacks, and overall our experience has been unbelievably positive.

Like so many other times in our lives when we’ve set out on a grand adventure, we did our research, laid out our plans, and set out to see where it would take us next. And again, just like those other times, some of our big plans were met with a healthy dose of reality that we weren’t expecting.

So let’s talk about the part we feel like we can control – the blog. We’ve blown it, we’ve known we’ve been blowing it, and yet we could not seem to actually get down to writing more, sharing more, and being present (at least digitally) more.

Banff & the Pacific Northwest

We had such a great time visiting Canada and the Pacific Northwest! In the few short weeks since we moved on, we’re still dreaming of the beautiful bright blue glacier-fed lakes and streams, the mom-and-pop dairy where we spent an evening sampling their delicious gouda, the rocky beach near Seattle where we met some new friends, and even our event-filled trip into downtown Portland.

We have far too much to share than we can really fit into a single blog post, but in the spirit of “done is better than perfect”, we want to be better at getting some of these blog posts actually finished. So with that in mind, this one will be a bit more highlights and photos than hearing us ramble. 🙂

Catching Up

Okay okay. We’re sorry! We know we’re more than a little behind. This journey so far has taken us to so many amazing places, and we’ve been so busy making memories and living life, that we’ve totally blown it on getting this blog some momentum. And for many of our friends and family out there, small instagram posts here and there just aren’t going to cut it.

The truth is, we have so many things that we want to share with you and involve you in, and once you get a little behind, it becomes even more daunting to try to get back up to speed. Nevertheless, that’s the plan here, and hopefully we’ll be back on track soon!
