The Story of a Family of Five Living, Working & Traveling in a VW Bus

This is the personal story of our family, a mom who's willing to live small and go far, their three children raised and born on the road, and the dad who convinced them all to do it.

Wand'rly has also played host to a variety of bloggers over the years, including a couple hitchhiking around Europe, the adventures of a female solo traveler and a couple who lives and sails around the Atlantic on their boat.
