Tripping Fantastic
A homeschooling vagabond urban family
This blog concerns the adventures of a family of six: Mama (that’s me), Poppa (Mr. Fantastic), Fiercely, Cleverly, and twins Really and Truly Fantastic. Not our real names, but at times quite descriptive. We live in a major East Coast city and we travel fairly often, both near and far. When I looked back over the past few years and realized how much traveling we had done, I wanted to write about it to remember our trips, to give other people ideas of how and where to go, and also throw in some homeschool projects and my own personal interests. I wrote a zine for several years but have felt it difficult to keep up, and while I resisted the blog option for years I am now seeing the benefits of blogging. Here we go!
update: in late August 2015, we started a year-long RTW trip. I occasionally blogged about our planning process (RTW planning category on original  trippingfantastic site menu) for a year or two before we left. The whole thing is a dream come true and a challenge and an honor and an unorganized mess at times! Welcome aboard!

  1. You’ve been nominated for the top 10 Nomad Families! Congratulations! We know about you via the popularised Facebook groups for traveling families who working location independent.

    Who are we? Gawin, infant Eliza en ik (Brenda) are the founders of Nomad Family, which is a community of families, living a digital nomad lifestyle.

    We are writing a Nomad Family travel book, to inspire and support (potential) Nomad Families and want you to be in. Within the responding Nomad Families we also compile and write a list of 10 Nomad Families which would be published on a huge travel website. A great opportunity, so we are excited to get to know you better!

    – Names of all traveling family members (first name), and age;
    – Family name (last name);
    – Give us a short introduction of your family (how you make money while traveling, what are you doing on the road?)
    – Send us your family photo, and we would love to know who is who at the photo;)

    You agree that we may use your given details to publish in the Nomad Family book, website, social media and the travel website we are writing the top 10 Nomad Families on.
