About

by Traveling Holmes

Hi, we’re the Holmes family! Just your average family traveling the world and documenting it all.

We’re originally from a teeny tiny town in Ontario, Canada. We were living the “All Canadian Dream” back home- we had the house, the car, and all of the material belongings we’ve been taught that we needed (thanks society). Although we followed the traditional lifestyle (kind of), we knew there was something missing…

We decided that memories and experiences are far more valuable than material things that take up room and cause clutter.

Our Goals

1. Become closer as a family

2. Learn about culture and different people

3. Become more open minded and open hearted

4. Serve other people

5. Create life long memories

How We're Going To Do It

We’re going to sell all of our belongings, continue working online, and build other income streams. All while documenting our journey for ourselves, our family, and our community- you!

We want to create life long memories but live a less stressful life. So we plan on doing a mixture of slow and fast travel, without a plan set in stone. If we feel that we’re moving too fast, aren’t soaking in the culture and life in a certain country or spot, we’re going to slow it down and live more like a local. If we’re feeling like its time to move on and live a little faster-paced life, then we’ll do that!

Finances also come into play with this. Traveling can be pretty cheap, but it can also be quite expensive- it really depends on what we want to do, and how fast we want to do it.

At this point we don’t really have a set in stone plan with tickets booked. We’re going to find a deal, go there first and continue on with our journey as we see fit. We’re planning on doing about a 2 weeks – 2 months in each place.

Meet The Fam Jam

Mitch

Hi, I’m Mitch! I’m the laid back, spontaneous one of the family. I’m the one who is always pushing all three of us out of our comfort limits. 

Before taking off on this journey, I was an underground gold miner, and in my spare time you would’ve found me spending time with my family, watching a good show, or spending time outdoors. 

I’m a pretty relaxed guy who likes to wander around and see where life takes me. 

Kaylee

Hi, I’m Kaylee! I’m the more organized and creative one of the family. I’m currently enrolled in Lakehead University finishing my BA degree in General Arts. My plan was to take another degree to become a primary teacher or social worker. That’s on hold for now as we chase our “out of this world” dreams- to travel full time as a family and document it all. 

I’m the one who is behind the scenes of most of our videos, and who does the creative and marketing sides of things. If I could I would spend my days in the water swimming, or wandering around a new place, taking in all of the culture and scenery.

Cooper 
Hi I’m Cooper! I’m a very active “little dude” as my parents would call me. 

I enjoy anything that has to do with transportation- cars, copters (helicopters), loaders, mixers, planes, choo-choo’s, excavators, monster trucks… yeah, the list goes on. I love to play with my cars and watch them as they work in the real world.

I REALLY dislike swings but I do love slides. I’m a little chatter box who loves to sing and dance. One of my favourite songs right now is Baa Baa Black Sheep and has been since I was born. 😉

I’m looking forward to meeting different people, and seeing all of the shiffy’s (fishy’s) in the ocean!
