G'DAY WE'RE THE MAKEPEACE FAMILY

Proving travel does not have to stop after kids!

Caroline & Craig Makepeace, life-long travelers.

We did not ditch the cubicle to travel the world - we never sat in it in the first place.

Travel was, is, and always will be what we create our life around.

We're here to show you how travel can EVOLVE with you, and prove it's possible even with kids.

We've lived in 5 countries, traveled through over 50 countries, and have done it NO MATTER what our life circumstances (that's over 23 years of experiences).

Recent epic adventures include a 12 month USA road trip in an RV, and an 18-month road trip around Australia.

Our home base is now Raleigh, North Carolina. We've traded the full-time travel for shorter trips through the USA, Europe and further afield.

Allow us to be your travel guides.

GET INSPIRED TO TRAVEL

Just why do we love to travel so much? It's an experience that goes beyond checking things off a list and counting countries.

It's about a deeper connection to ourselves, to others, and to Mother Earth.

When we step outside the boundaries of our comforts we get to know who we truly are and expand our possibilities.

OUR TRAVEL STORY

family travel blog

We recorded a series of podcasts, to share how we've made travel work no matter our lifestyle.

From solo travel before we met, to couples travel and a 5 year honeymoon, a period of darkness where EVERYTHING went wrong (but gave birth to this family travel blog, to family travel around Australia and a USA RV trip and successful travel blogging and getting a green card!

A lifetime commitment to travel involves many sacrifices (all of them worth it!) Here is an insight into our life, the challenges we've overcome, and how we are qualified to be your expert travel guides!

FOLLOW OUR CURRENT ADVENTURES

Travel has been the focus of our life since 1997 - intentionally.

We don't plan on stopping that. We now have a base in Raleigh, NC - after being granted a Green Card for our extraordinary ability in the art of travel blogging.

We will continue to explore more of the US but also intend on traveling further abroad - Europe, South East Asia and Central and South America.

We can't wait to share more of our favorites as we experience them.
