WELCOME TO CALLED TO WANDER!
Thanks for taking the time to visit our blog!
Hello from Lindsay & Chris + Everest, our Australian Cattle Dog! We are in our thirties. We have no kids. We sold everything that we own, bought and renovated a truck camper and started our lives over on the road as Called To Wander!
We’re broke. Lindsay has Crohn’s Disease. Our truck has 460,000 miles on it. Our camper is old. We shouldn’t be traveling. But we are attempting to drive from Alaska to Argentina while helping people along the way. Call us crazy! But we believe in our mission to help others and that we will overcome these obstacles and more as we travel to make the world a better place!
We don’t have much to our names anymore. In fact, after selling everything that we owned we are starting our journey from Alaska to Argentina with only $25,000.
But we love people. And we love to travel. So we have combined our passions in our current journey to drive from Alaska to Argentina. Our goal is to connect with people along the way that we can help in some simple, yet meaningful way.
Travel, for us, is more about the journey than the destination. We want to give back to others as we wander. By doing so we believe that we become part of a smaller world where every day has purpose and meaning.
We want to share our journey with you – to provide you the inspiration and information that helps you overcome obstacles in your life so that you can travel with purpose!
WHAT YOU’LL FIND ON OUR PAGE
We believe that everyone has a story to tell. By wandering across the world in search of adventure, we desire to share the stories of the people we meet and places we visit through journalistic prose, photography and videos.
On our page you will find inspiring STORIES about the people we meet and help along the way to encourage you to find ways to give to others in your life!
And you will find INFORMATION about places we visit so you can plan your next trip to any number of places we share with you!
You will also find PHOTOGRAPHS that Lindsay has taken of the most beautiful people and places that will inspire your next adventure!
Additionally you will find RESOURCES based on our experiences that help you plan and carry out your own travel adventures!
SUPPORT US AS WE “TRAVEL WITH PURPOSE!”
We love people! And we believe that it is important to “Travel With Purpose” so we are very intentional about connecting with people during our travels. We want you to follow our stories from the road and feel inspired to follow in our footsteps or head out on a similar journey of your own. We are learning to overcome many obstacles in our own lives – fear of the unknown, medical illness, financial shortfalls – to pursue our dreams of traveling and serving others along the way.
As we give to others we have learned to also accept the generosity of others.
If you are able, we would greatly appreciate your financial assistance as we attempt to fulfill our mission to serve others as we travel. We budget conservatively and are faithful to spend within our budget. We are also willing to provide periodic financial updates upon request.
Thank you so much for becoming a part of our community as we attempt to drive from Alaska to Argentina!
