As you know, our move to Spain started with a career break, taking a sabbatical, planning a family gap year, or whatever you want to call it. After 5 years of travel, it has now officially turned into a travel lifestyle. Yes, we now have the lifestyle of the open-ended traveler with a home base in Spain.
How did you go from Career Break to Lifestyle?
How do you make money online? (C’mon this is the real question you want answered, right?)
Singapore is a wonderful place to visit, as it is so clean and organized. That does however come at a price, so be a bit prepared for a little sticker shock, as Singapore is expensive. That doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the country for a little bit. We had a wonderful 48 hours in Singapore with kids. We want to share what we have learned with you so you can get ideas of things to do in Singapore with kids and a couple of options on where to stay. These are also great options if you just have 24 hours in Singapore!
We ventured to Mar Menor, Spain for the weekend, so we could experience the healing powers of the natural Lo Pagan mud baths! Lo Pagan Murcia is the place to go and it is easy access from many areas in Spain. It is about 3 1/2 hours from Almuñécar, 4 hours Northeast of Costa del Sol, 2 1/2 hours South of Valencia and 4 hours Southeast of Madrid. Continue reading →
So far I have traveled to 50+ countries in my lifetime and I have to say, I fell in love with the nature and beauty in Langkawi, Malaysia. I am almost hesitant to tell you about it, as I don’t want tourism to spoil what we have experienced.

Yes, I did say Free Things To Do in Porto, with kids! We had a wonderful time visiting Porto, Portugal (aka Oporto). It was so thrilling to find so many free activities for the kids, we thought we would dedicate an entire post just to that. I am sure there are more free activities out there, but we didn’t have time to enjoy them all.
Oh this city is magical, you could spend an entire week here or just sample a few days. This was home to me for many years and even after all of my travel it is still my favorite city in the world. One reason I love it so much is the diversity which can be found all in a walk and all in one day. I will share with you some of my favorite places so you can get to know the real San Francisco.
For the holidays of 2016 we spent Christmas in Edinburgh with my Grandma! I had such a nice time. My favorite thing that we did was the Christmas Market rides on Princes Street and the street of lights. I love things like that. We also went on a ghost tour, had fun at Edinburgh Castle and played at Camera Obscura. Everything we did was full of fun, even though it was cold outside. We even had fun on the Scotch Whisky Experience.
We had a wonderful family Christmas in Edinburgh with Grandma Linda. It was an amazing week and we want to share what we feel are the top 15 things to do in Edinburgh with kids! Alright, you caught me, Anya is only 12, but she is just as teen as they come. Many of these activities are specific to the Christmas season, but there are also plenty which are available year-round.
Just as years past, 2016 has been full of fun, adventure, and work for the Wagoner Family. We thought we would take a little trip down memory lane with you and share yet another epic year abroad. Every single day we are so happy with our decision to become self-made expats. We took control of our lives and stopped waiting for something to happen or someone to give us a break. We created and designed our own family travel lifestyle over 4 years ago and we plan to keep it going!
