VagabondFamily.org is built for parents or soon to be parents who want something different for themselves and their children. Living a travel (or nomadic) lifestyle throws a lot of challenges your way and we are here (as a group) to help you prepare, plan and live a less common lifestyle with your children.
Whether your planning an open ended trip or a trip from 1 to 12 months the advice on this website will go a significant way to making your travels much more enjoyable, for both you as parents and your children.
Who are we?
We become a Vagabond Family (no fixed abode) in January 2010, we have now been on the road for more than 2545 (according to the side bar on http://ourtravellifestyle.com). Tracy sums it up best when she says "After realising they were discontent with their life in Australia and surviving our first overseas family holiday, her husband came up with a mad scheme to travel the world with their children in search of a place they wanted to call home." Well we are still on the journey and probably will be for a long time to come. Life is good!
In 2010 Tracy and her famliy left on a mad adventure to travel the world and search for a place they wanted to call home. Five years later they've found a number of places they'd love to call home and explored 20 countries. Tracy blogs about their adventures on www.ourtravellifestyle.com... click here for more...

It takes more than two!
Like with any site of this size, it really isn't just about us. To create a great community resource we need assistance from all sorts of people from writing contributions to community support. So make sure you check out the Authors' section and also the Family Profiles' section.
If you haven't already added your Family to VagabondFamily.org, then you should head over there now and create a family profile. It will open up a new world of connections and resources for you.
If you would like to write for us, please take a look at the "write for us" page as we are always looking for new fresh articles of interest for our community.
The future of VagabondFamily.org
This is just the beginning of VagabondFamily.org. We have some fantastically ambitious goals for this community which we will be revealing very soon. Over the next few months we will be recruiting a group of dedicated Region Experts to help you get all the information you will ever need to travel to and around a particular region. We will also be recruiting Community Managers to help bring online some fantastic resources that have either never existed before or have taken hours and hours to research on your own.
We can't wait to share all of these exciting initatives with you, but for now we are focused on growing the Family Profiles of VagabondFamily.org into a fantastic resource to all of you, so get on over there and add your profile if you haven't already.
