We’re a family of four filling a dream (well, momma’s dream) to put on a backpack and travel the world. Kyle (dad) was an engineer turned stay at home dad turned wood working school graduate. Rachel (mom) was born with a briefcase and has spent 20 years in corporate america. Sean and Julia are eleven year old twins and 6th graders who amaze and challenge us on a daily basis. Rachel works for a wonderfully progressive coffee company that offers employees a year off — a “coffee break” — after ten years of service. This blog follows the joy and the pain in both planning and living our coffee break!
