As a family of four, with two boys ages 9 and 11, we left our home country of the U.S. in July of 2022. Since then, we have been to 11 countries and had experiences of a lifetime.
We've applied and received two digital nomad visas - in Croatia and in Spain - and we were near the end of the process of getting a visa in Portugal before we opted for Spain at the last minute.
We've established a base each year so that the boys could have the stability of being in a school for one year at a time. Aside from that, we travel all summer, every school break, and many weekends. Ever since we started doing this, we've received a lot of questions from other individuals, couples, and families about how we manage it.
Our goal with this guide is to shed some light on why we decided to do it, how we've done it, how we decided where to go, what we do for schooling, and all the amazing but also challenging experiences that have come out of it. This guide is meant to inspire and show you that it can be done. We give our best to show you what to expect if you decide to embark on a journey like this on your own.
