Just thinking about traveling with kids can be nightmare-inducing for many, but for this adventurous family of four, being on the road is just a way of life.
Australians Caz and Craig Makepeace, 41 and 43 respectively, have visited 52 countries and lived in five, so far. They’ve been exploring every corner of the world for the past 16 years, and have continued their adventures with daughters Kalyra, 9, and Savannah, 5. The couple’s nomadic lifestyle has allowed them to visit everywhere from bustling markets in Singapore to volcanoes in Hawaii.
The Makepeaces share their travel experiences and tips on social media and turned their blog, ytravel, from a part-time hobby to a full-time job that finances all of their expenses. They told TODAY that sponsored campaigns with brands, freelance writing for other sites and affiliate partnerships all contribute to their income. The couple have been writing, sharing pictures and making videos about their family adventures for the past seven years.
By sharing their experiences, the couple hope to inspire other families to travel as well.
“We started the blog because we want to show you that you can do it, too,” said Caz Makepeace. “It’s about believing, taking risks, taking opportunities and making things happen.”
