2018-09-11 - This month, we chat with the Miljian family about life on the road with two young children and find out how they make it work.
Julien (French) and Miki (Italian) are travel journalists, content editors and founders of . More than 300 days ago, they sold most of their possessions and started travelling around the globe with their two children — Teo (3 years) and Lia (1 year). Their itinerary so far has taken them to Dubai, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Germany, Portugal, Italy, France, Japan, South Korea, California, Mexico, Cuba and New York.
30 flights, 8 trains, 10 buses, 5 cars, 4 bikes and infinite taxis later, their journey is far from over (Sri Lanka, India and Nepal are next up on their agenda). We caught up with them to find out more about their adventure of a lifetime.
Many would say it is brave to leave your home and hit the road. Do you consider yourself brave people?
Not at all. We just saved some money for the first few months of our travels and continued with our freelance work. Right now, we can say that all of our income is from our work as travel journalists and content creators. We work hard every day and it’s non-stop — that’s part of the deal, but we are incredibly happy to do it.
There is bravery in every kind of life. Some people love living in the place they were born and others feel the need to find their place on this planet. For us it was the second option! The only question to ask yourself is “what brings me the most in my life?” If what you’re doing is bringing you positive vibes, that’s fantastic! In our case, we are happiest when we are all together — waking up, having lunch and dreaming together… and we found the solution to make it happen.
