Weekend links

For a special edition of weekend links, I thought I’d link to some of my favorite travel-ish blogs—after all, this is mostly what I’ve been reading lately as I’ve taken on another full-time job getting us ready to go. 36 days and counting!

Bridges and Balloons :: Twenty-something Victoria left London a few years ago and hasn’t looked back. Her beautifully-designed site shares travel stories, tips, hacks, and inspiration. I dig her year in photos after the first 365 days of travel.

Making it Anywhere :: Mish and Rob jointly run this site about living as digital nomads, sharing tips on being an entrepreneur from the road. I appreciate their recent post about the breakdown of cost for the digital nomad lifestyle.

A Sacred Journey :: A new-to-me blog, Lacy runs this blog devoted to spirituality and intention in travels and daily life and regularly features the personal stories of pilgrims. Those pilgrim stories are my favorite so far.

Walking Far From Home :: Another pilgrim-y blog, Ryan Moore says he’s a “traveler, writer, photographer, adventurer, trekker, explorer, idea-machine, pilgrim, foodie, mystic whose deepest wish (apart from a time travel machine) is that every person would learn to live on the cutting edge of life.” He walks a lot—I’m inspired.

Hither & Thither :: This isn’t solely a travel blog, but I’m a sucker for beautiful design and photography, and Ashley inspires. She writes a lot about domestic travel, particularly on the west coast of the U.S., and her kids are young, which I love—it doesn’t hold them back.

…and don’t forget to subscribe to our travel blog, especially if you want to follow our upcoming round-the-world trip! It’s getting closer…

  1. I LOVE all those blogs you mentioned. I’ve been in a rut lately and I’ve been looking for inspiration and an escape everywhere I can find and those blog will definitely do the trick. Thanks!

  2. I am new to following your blog and am really looking forward to your travel blog! I can’t seem to work out how to subscribe to your travel blog too…help!?!

    I’m inspired as I haven’t been able to pack light to save my life…my whole life. We now have a toddler and it’s much much worse. We’ve only gone away once w him and packing everything was so overwhelming…specially when we arrived and realised how much we had to unload!! So I’m reading your ideas and trying to change a lifetime of “just in case” packing and living. Thanks so much!

    • Hi Jo! Simply fill out the subscribe via email slot in the top right of the blog, next to the most recent post. Or, you can head here. 🙂

  3. Hey Tsh, I saw your Instagram pic of the storage unit. I was wondering what size it is. I am looking to store our familys worldly goods for a few months as I travel the east coast (a born and bred westerner here). Just thought maybe you could breakdown how you are doing the storage unit. Thanks! Caitlin Mallery

    • Hmm… this is a question for Kyle. 😉 And he’s reading to the boys right now. I know it’s not the smallest, but it is the next size up – maybe 10×10? No clue. I’ll ask him when I get a chance…

  4. I can not believe that your trip is so soon… how on earth has time flown like this. Have to say, just can not wait… exciting times ahead for you and your followers!!!

    Here’s a couple RV-based travel blogs you might like:

    The first is a couple who live and work in technology on the road and the second is a family traveling with nine of their children. Both families live full-time in their RVs.

  6. This post reminded me that I wanted to ask about recommendations for books about how to raise globally minded children. I feel like you posted some a long time ago, but I can’t find them now.

  7. I was actually just thinking about a post you did a while back that shared traveling family blogs (which I have since referenced for some of my friends). This is another great list I’m looking forward to checking out (I only follow one of the blogs you mentioned so far).

    All the best on your upcoming voyage. So exciting!
