I was in two minds about our trip to Russia on the Trans-Siberian Express. The Corona Virus was in its early days and the global communication was very mixed. ⁠ ⁠ We were reassured by our Tour Group Manager that all was well and even with the new Mongolian restrictions coming into play, we would be allowed back in to the country at the end of the trip.🤔⁠ ⁠ If you know anything about living in a developing country what they say one day, even in writing, can change pretty quickly the next day. Even this niggle in the back of our mind we were comforted by the fact that if we were dragged off to a Russian quarantine facility we would at least be together!😬⁠ ⁠ Considering we were now all homeschool families as well, it turned out to be a fabulous educational field trip for us and the kids. This open air historical museum "Taltsy" was a HUGE hit with the kids.⁠ ⁠ Here Casey is standing in one of the very well maintained wooden buildings in a village replicating life in the time before vaccines. For the first time in my life I have an inkling of what it would have been like in those times when a family or community member fell ill and the fear that would come with the illness.⁠ ⁠ Today I am thankful for all the vaccines we do have and for the scientists and researchers working towards a vaccine to knock this new virus on its head.⁠ ⁠ Check out our link in bio for more on this trip.

I really did not expect to ever experience Palm Sunday in a place with native palm trees! I certainly don’t mind these days in such a beautiful place, but I’m excited to be back in the dense forests of the Great North Woods again one day. Take care, all. #strangedays #palmsunday #lent #quarantine #nomadicfamily #rvfamily

😳 Found ourselves in the LA Times A few weeks ago, a well written @latimes reporter by the name of @kurtisalee came by and talked to us (from a distance) about how the shut downs have affected not just our family but other @fulltime_families who are facing similar decisions. Their talented photographer @ginaferazzi snapped some photos (also from a distance) to breath life into the change is everyday we are now facing. The pandemic has spread across the world, affecting everyone in one way or another. One of those groups not often discussed is traveling families who are only able to shelter in their RVs instead of a house and yard. While some are able to stay, others are being kicked out of the place they are trying to hunker down and shelter in place. The common thread is everyone is concerned about where they’re home base is or will be and uncertainty can be felt by all. Great article! LINK IN BIO

F o r • b e t t e r or for worse. We’re in this together, boo. If you’ve been following our stories then you know we’ve been facing some difficulties the past couple of days. We’ve been praying about it and talking through each next step and so many of you guys have been sending prayers our way as well. As of right now we’re still stuck, but feeling hopeful that all will be fixed up and we can be on our way soon! . . . . . #nomadiclife #buslife #buslifeproblems #skoolieproblems #skoolie #skooliefamily #nomadicfamily #adventurefamily #retrovibes #aviatornation #pregnancy #vanlifeproblems #vanlife #vanlifediaries #vanlifewithkids #vanlifefamily

Today the kids and I went on a bike ride and came across a river with water in it! [ this is rare this time of year here in Costa Rica ] . . Watch my stories 👆some guys were doing some bee things in the back of a truck— not sure how to call that clearly...🤣 but they were collecting honey I think.... and as we rode by, they gave us a big slab of honey comb with raw organic honey. [ no picture, but I did a video! ] . . The kids found tad poles + mini frogs... and only one of us got stung by a bee 🐝 😂😳😬 Can you guess who?

We are still waiting for details of flights back to the UK. The British Ambassador conducted a Facebook Live session yesterday, but couldn’t give us, and the other 700 Brits here in Nepal, any indication when the flights might be. One week, two weeks, who knows?! On the bright side, we are isolating with another British family so it’s like we’re on some weird resort holiday. Kids’ club all day and beers at five o’clock is the new routine. The kids love it, but I’m not sure how long the adults will last. . . #lockdownnepal #lockdown #strandedinnepal #repatriation #nepalwithkids #travelkids #fulltimetravel #fulltimetravelfamily #backpackingfamily #nomadicfamily #ourtribetravels #nepal #thamel

Being in extreme nature, creation I cannot deny, leads to treasured habits. Tracking and discussing the timing of the tides is a daily focus when living by the sea. Events of the day are powerfully clocked by gravitational effects on that deep blue line. Here on the ocean and on Lake Superior I cannot help but be mindful of He who created not only these places of greatness, but us as well. How can we know what tomorrow is to bring? What I already know is that He brought us today. And for me, that is a gift. #findthesun2020 #quarantine #sunrise #sunset #thanksbetoGod #gratitude #nomadicfamily #rvfamily #creation

H O M E 🌿 We had the funkiest light pouring into the bus and I had to get a shot. Every day I'm grateful that this lockdown didn't happen when the bus was still a crazy disaster because that would be the definition of literal hell on wheels 🤣 A shower is definitely the next project on the cards though, as is a toilet door 😬😆 I also just ordered a runner for the floor which I'm wicked excited about. Now to patiently wait for the lockdown to lift so it can arrive 🕒👀 Anyone else gonna have a hefty pile of parcels arriving in a few weeks? #cantjustbeme 🙈🤣

This is not where we intended to spend our March/April. We wanted to visit with family in Florida. We wanted to spend our son’s second birthday at Disney. Sometimes plans change. Luckily our children are flexible. We are just beyond grateful to have a place to go in this time of uncertainty. Sunshine, fresh air, and each other. We will get through this 💕 We hope all of our #fulltime friends are in a safe place as well. #quarantinelife #stayathome #shelterinplace @nomad_dad . . . . . #ridingourstory #adventuresformiles #fulltimefamilies #fulltimetravel #rvwithkids #rvingwithbabies #travelwithkids #roadschooling #roadschoolingrocks #rvlife #exploreyourworld #adventureawaits #nomadicfamily #takeahike #healthyliving #organic #toxinfreehome #greenyourrv #oilyfamily #beyourbestyou #homeiswhereyouparkit #workathomefamily #workfromanywhere #theworldisyourclassroom

Have you ever been to Petrified Forest National Park? . Here we learned how logs that were once covered by water had silica seep into them which eventually hardened to make them petrified. . #arizona🌵 #petrifiedforest #petrifiedforestnationalpark #nationalparkphotography #roadtrippin #roadtripusa #familytraveling #rvlife #rvlifewithkids #nomad #nomads #nomadicfamily #fulltimefamilies #travelblogging #waybeyondthenorm

Today I feel grateful. Today I choose joy. Today I count my blessings. . As I sit here in total isolation in the middle of the desert and completely off grid, I am COMPLETELY grateful for so much. I’m “stuck” here with my favorite people in the world. My life has really not changed much at all. . These past 4.5 years have been so full of life, new experiences and adventure that I am welcoming a much-needed rest. But when it’s time to get back out, we’ll be there. There’s still so much more we want to experience! . Our day at Valley of Fire State park was pretty freaking awesome. As we ventured out for our hike, we were notified by fellow hikers that the slot canyon we were heading for was “impassable” due to water. Because it had rained in the desert?! We kept on hiking. No one had yet ventured into the slot canyon that morning. Maybe they were afraid of getting wet? It is the desert, after all…. . We have a saying, “Buoys do hard things.” The hike was not really hard at all. Mike and I took off our shoes and waded into the water. The boys decided to traverse the walls of the canyon, avoiding the water all together. As we went, others followed us. We led the way 😊 We actually welcomed the challenge. . With each new challenge, we come out on the other side stronger and better with new experiences, sometimes new skills and often a new perspective. Perspective is everything!! People were afraid to go into the canyon because they could not tell how deep the water was and they couldn’t see around the corner to the other side. . Right now, we’re all in the canyon - the water is deep and getting deeper as we walk and we can’t see around the corner. But we have all survived our hardest days. We will come out on the other side stronger, with new skills and a new perspective and deeper gratitude for the little things. Life will be different and, if we CHOOSE, it can be better! Regardless, it will always be an adventure 😜. . . #ourbasicessentials #adventurefamily #valleyoffire #countyourblessings #quarantineblessings #choosejoy #dohardthings #fulltimefamilies #fulltimetravel #nomadicfamily #lessstuffmorelife #boymomadventures

Thinking about much happier times. Seems so long ago. What an amazing time we had @skooliepalooza. This beautiful photo of our family was taken by @theyellowcucumber @joephilipson It was so awesome to meet such amazing people and reconnect with friends we made previously while on the road. Missing you all. Be well, be safe.

We got out into the wild today! . . . We had a showing early this morning so we decided to go visit the Camping grounds near by. They are closed of course but they always are around this time. Utah northern camp grounds dont generally open till Memorial Day. So we figured it was safe to go. It might have been a bit chilly and it snowed a little bit while we we were there but the kids had a blast! We will definitely be going back soon!!

A n o t h e r day of doing what we can to keep these two precious babes safe and sound. We’re about to have like 5 days in a row of travel mode which won’t be easy, but it’s time to get near the hospital where we plan to deliver. How do you guys make travel days more interesting? What kind of precautions are you taking when getting from one place to another under these circumstances? Someone suggested using doggie bags to pump gas and I thought that was a great idea!! . . . . #lovelymoments #dayslikethese #livebeautifully #habitandhome #theartofslowliving #babycarrier #makemoments #documentyourdays #simplethingsmadebeautiful #verilymoment #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodthroughinstagram #projectvanlife #vanlife #vanlifediaries #vanlifemovement #vanlifeexplorers #nomadicfamily #vanlifeideas #buslife #skoolie #skoolieconversion #choosejoy #momswhotravel #nomadlife #fulltimetravel #fulltimefamily #fulltimerv
