Our Conversation Before

I said to my wife: Let’s go to Thailand!

She replied: What?! Thailand! Are you crazy?

I repeated: Yes, Thailand. This is so cool. We’ll have fun!

She declared: But it’s on the other side of the world!

I answered ironically: Really!? It’s even better.

She stated: But Asia, it’s dangerous, unsafe, unhealthy and dirty!

I showed the photos: C’mon, have a look at the photos: the beach, sun, heat, massage, cold martini!

She agreed and said: It’s just wow! It’s fantastic! But wait, we don’t have money for this trip. We’d returned from Morocco couple of months ago. And we’re in Egypt this year as well.

I reashured her: We have savings.

Then my wife announced: That money is for the nest egg. Can’t use them.

I didn't give up and imagined: Yea…. But imagine it’ll be -20 this January again, and we’ll be in the beautiful beach, relaxed under the palm-trees with a cold cocktail. We’ll be in paradise!

She sighed: Yeah, sounds fun!  But it’s mission impossible to leave our jobs for a whole month.

I exclaimed: OK. Enough already! So there’s one main question and I’m asking you: You wanna go or not?

After a long pause she rejoiced: Yes, yes, yes! Let’s go to Thailand!

Sounds familiar? Maybe you’ve been in such a conversation with your family members, friends or even yourself? This was our daily talks couple of years ago when from holiday makers we became travel family or travelers.

Travel Family Today

Now as a travel family we’re seeking for place independence. We want to become free and happy anywhere we are on our planet Earth. We gave up some of our fears: to travel overseas, to dangerous, unsafe countries, where various diseases are, poverty and dirt, and to countries where you don’t know the language. The unknown doesn’t scare us anymore. In fact, it invites to experience something new.

Today we are on our way to travel around the world with a child

Travelling is our faith, spirit, positivity, fun and happiness. Travels broaden our minds. We became more tolerant, open-minded, flexible, free thinking, unprejudiced, undogmatic; we gave up most of our fears. But we still have some. Such as my wife is extremely afraid of rats. So to go to India for her is still a big NO. But we know that we can overcome everything, just must want the change and do it.

Travelling becomes our way of living

We still didn’t quit our jobs but the desire to do so is burning; that moment is coming. While travelling we gave up fear of having no money. We are a travel family and we believe that money come to you, when you know where to get them. We don’t want to own money - we want what money can buy. Today I’m a successful entrepreneur, have passive income.  My wife doesn’t ask me about the money anymore when we plan our travels. We have freedom from money but it doesn’t mean we are millionaires. We believe that a person doesn’t need 90 per cent of things he/she owns to be happy. Happiness is not money; it’s action, creativity, job anything that creates money. But there is only condition - it must come from your heart, soul and spirit.

If you have the same desire to travel you are at the right place

If you find some of our thoughts similar to yours and have the same desire to travel you are at the right place. We started travelling since 2002 and the passion to travel has been growing since then. At the same time, we as personalities have been changing majorly. We as a travel family inspire others with our example to start fulfilling their dream to travel - to travel with your family.

It's Time To Introduce Ourselves!

We’re Skaidrė and Mindaugas, a married couple and a travel family from Lithuania (in Europe, by the Baltic Sea), but we would like to call the world our home.

For us life is too short just to live it ordinary – to go to work, to pick up children from school, to go shopping, to have dinner, go on holiday twice a year. For us life is to enjoy it in every second, to do what you love doing, to have no boundaries or limitations, to free our mind and soul, to feel happiness. We think travelling is everything said above. Since 2015 our travel family has a new member. We are happy to share our lives and travels with our son Ąžuolas.

If you are looking for a place to fuel your desire for travel, personal development and photography we are ready to share our experiences and knowledge with you

We’d like to show you with our own example how we changed and are still changing for travels, in the travels and after the travels. We inspire you with our own example to travel with your kids (despite their age). Our son went to his first international trip by car when he was 4,5 months old and on his trip by plane when he was 5.5 months. Believe me - trips were easy and fun. Everything depends on you - your attitude and your inner-world. If you feel calm, your child would be calm as well. And if you are stressed, your child will be uneasy, anxious.

Children are not a barrier that you have to give up your dream to travel

We call this our happiness. When you pursue your passion and do what it takes to make it your lifestyle. You’ll discover those barriers were just imagined and born from fear and doubt. Following our travel family stories you’ll know how to overcome obstacles, fears, doubts and start living the life your heart desires.

Our Travel Philosophy

We started the blog as a travel family but we think about ourselves more like explorers that resort lovers.

Our travel philosophy is simple – listen to your heart

If you want to lay by the pool in a resort – do so; and if you seek some adventures – climb the mountain; if you want to know other culture – settle with foreigners or go somewhere unsafe. If you want – DO IT NOW; do not postpone for other time.  Don’t be stuck to the same point – do, travel, explore, navigate each time differently. Our human nature is constant change and development.

We can drive a car on the left or right side of the road, no matter in which country India or Morocco. In every travel we experience something for the first time: zip line, paragliding, sailing, something we haven’t tried before.

1. We safe on travels not for a beer or night-club.

2. We stay in a resort not because we are only luxurious travel lovers;

3. We climb the mountain not because we are alpinists;

4. We eat food in the streets not because we do not have money to go to restaurant;

5. We definitely drive a scooter in Asia not because it‘s cheaper;

6. We rent a car and it doesn’t mean we do not like other means of transport;

7. We do not have set limits.

We, as a travel family, open our hearts to strange people and like to share with others how traveling is fun and easy when you are positive about everything, interesting and inviting to explore more, sometimes tiring and uncomfortable but always full of happy unforgettable moments that drive you forward and you desire more and more of that happiness.

Travelling is our passion, aim of our life is happiness, so we chose to live our life in happy travels.

More About Our Personal Journey Here

I hope there is written somewhere above in the stars that we had to meet each other abroad, not in our home country Lithuania. We met in summer 2002, England. We were young, adventurous, bold, curious and in love. We’re on the same international student program in the fruit farm with 80 other young people from different European countries. There we went to our first trip, knowing each other only for one month, across England to Scotland by car. Now we still feel nostalgic about that trip and think about repeating it, this time with our son.

Got Tied Up

In 2007 we got married and till that time travelled to neighboring countries; had a present trip to Turkey. At that time, we’re just holiday makers. We didn’t know anything about real travelling. But from that trip we got sick with a travel virus. We got into the vibes of adventure, desire to know, learn, taste and hear more about the world, to get new experience and to spend cold and snowy winters in tropical countries.

Became Active Travelers

From a trip to Canary Islands in 2012 our carrier as real travelers started. We planned all trip by ourselves, rented a car and investigated the island far and wide in 6 days. We got involved in a thought to travel at least twice a year. For that we needed more money. When you know where to spend money, money come to you. We still didn’t win any lottery and all the money were earned and saved.

Full Time Travel Family - Why Not?

A turning point in our travel familt story is from a trip to Thailand in 2014. After the trip we decided we want to become full time travelers. Well, at least to travel much more than 2 times a year and to go on much long lasting periods than two months apart from other short trips. 

Baby Traveler Has Born 🙂

Next year, our travel family expanded, our son Ąžuolas was born. My wife was on her maternity leave for two years. My job was the only obstacle to fulfill our dream to go on a travel without a return ticket for a couple of months, just to spend winter in some warm country. I was wrecking my brain what to do – how to follow our dream.

If you are passionate about your dream so you cannot sleep at night, you’ll find the solution how to make it happen

In January 2016 our travel family of three started our journey without a return ticket. It lasted more than two months – takeoff point in Canary Islands, then Portugal and finish in Spain. When returning I had that feeling ‘what’s next? where? when?’ And millions of countries, places rushed into the mind.

Our Travel Plans

Our travel family of three plans to go on one long term trip this 2016 autumn (it'll be Croatia, Balkans or Italy). This summer we will also have some short trips in Europe. Two weeks travel visiting Slovakia and climbing the High Tatras mountains is already planned this June. The grand travel plan that we are already working on is next winter; it'll be Asia or South America. 

  Travel around the world - we will do this, we know!
