About the Kortmans

We’re a family of 6 who have chosen to be location independent. In early 2014, we sold our house and most of our possessions.  Our first international trip as a family was in 2014 and brought us through Southeast Asia, South Africa and parts of Europe. We’re currently planning an RV trip through Mexico, Central America and Ecuador. We’re passionate about travel and about expanding our horizons through experience. Read  more about us or View our itinerary.
