Who We Are

Thank you for visiting our blog site. We are a family of 3, 4 if you include our dog. We sold our home, threw stuff in a storage unit and downsized to fit all we need in a Toyota Landcruiser that we travel in as our tiny home on wheels while circumnavigating the globe for 8-ish years. We are a young-ish couple with a 13-year-old son and have been on this adventure for two years so far. We are not professional bloggers and barely even know how to run our site. So, if it’s not updated or the format is funky, we are unapologetic. Please enjoy the content and if you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to send us an e-mail 8yearsglobal@gmail.com or send us a message on Instagram @8yearsglobal.

Bronson, Vanessa, Kaden and Roxy dog.

As one of our friends recently said, “Antigua is like the Hotel California, you can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.” This really has never been more true. We finally got Kaden’s passport renewed and decided to go to the immigration office immediately after picking it up from the embassy, … Continue reading Guatemala is Hotel California… You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave…
