Description

Rod and Jessica Sanchez thought they had it all… A comfortable home, comfortable jobs, and a comfortable routine. The "American Dream" was theirs for the taking. But what if that dream didn’t turn out to be their dream? The more they worked, the less time they got to spend together. During their children’s most formative years, they’d be spending the majority of their time away from them. The more they thought about it, the less it made sense. Turns out, either they’re really impatient or they weren't made to live that kind of life to begin with. Because of this, they decided to sell everything, quit their jobs and travel the world as the Jetsetting Family.

love listening to your podcast. my husband and I are planning to take a year off work and travel with our 3 and 5 year old daughters. a lot of the same places you've been (targeting Latin America, South America and Southeast Asia). can you share any advice about how to enroll our children in a month long school, like you did in playa del Carmen? we love to scuba and would really benefit from help in the next scuba areas. thanks!

I really enjoy your podcast! We have traveled with the kids, but never so long. I listen to your adventures while driving in the traffic jam around Rotterdam, the Netherlands, on my way to work. I hope you keep travelling and podcasting with lots of joy!

One of my favourite episodes!! Totally loved your story about road tripping in Australia and beach with missing kangaroos. You just always keep it real. Loved as well hearing more about your month at home and what challenges you found and how kids adjusted. Awesome as well to hear about cruising and how Jess changed her views about it. I would def love to try it ourselves. Thanks for inspiring us to travel. You are awesome

We are so excited for season two! We love following along on your adventures around the world both through your Instagram photos and now your podcast. We are so glad Rod talked you into starting up a podcast about your travels! We actually are intrigued to try out a cruise now that we have heard that you non cruise lover loved it!

Loved this episode! I completely agree with Jess that it's busier when you're home than when on vacation. We're "doing nothing" this week for spring break and every single day has filled up with something! So in my spare time I'm enjoying "researching" trips for other places to go, including re-listening to these podcasts. Excited to add more future destinations thanks to y'alls trips inspiration! It's also good to know that non-cruisers can be turned to cruise lovers!
