GET INSPIRED TO TRAVEL FOR A CHANGE

Five years ago, we (Dave & Marisa Smurthwaite) set out on the adventure of a lifetime with one core objective in mind: reprogram our children and family through exposure to the world.

Tired from the non-stop pace in the United States, we initially moved to the French countryside, where we learned first-hand how to eat, work, and live more holistically. Having been given such incredible life gifts from one location, we decided to see what other corners of the world could teach us.

 

This year we're living in Spain, Rwanda, Vietnam, Colombia, and the United States. As we go, we're capturing the best lessons along the way in hopes of helping you and your family grow through travel.

 

JOIN OUR "WHY WE ROAM BOOK CLUB" AND EACH MONTH YOU'LL RECEIVE AN EARLY EDITION CHAPTER TO READ (& WEIGH IN ON IF YOU LIKE). 

 

You'll also be first in line for an autographed printed first edition in time for Christmas 2020! 

 
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING...

- WENDY WHITE

Former Librarian

"I’m so buying this and I want an autographed copy!!"

ABOUT THE AUTHORS

David Smurthwaite spent the first 15 years of his career in advertising, working hard to convince the world to buy things they could usually live without.

 

Then he moved to the French countryside and it all changed.

David has been a top writer on Medium in Travel, Parenting, & Short Stories. He's a father of four rapidly-growing boys, and husband to a near-perfect companion, all of whom he's enlisted in writing a book dedicated to inspiring families to have life-changing experiences around the world.
