Our van stopped on us in the middle of the dessert. Please watch the full video as we discuss our story, what just happened and we have a few surprises.

Going forward, we need your help more than ever right NOW! We’d like to get out of here before it gets dark.

To support our work please visit our new Patreon account and consider joining our journey.

We hope that our transparency and our positive outlook inspires you to persevere and give back too!
Please share this video.

Other notes: The van won’t start up. We have 23% battery life. 2 bars on our cellphone signal and our laptop is dead and propane is low.

About us

My name is Bionca and I have a 9 yr old son named Carter. I’m a cultured high energy globetrotting life coach, public speaker and soon to be an author. Carter is a spiritual goofy homeschooled kid, gamer, and humanitarian. Together we want to inspire others to be bold enough to chase their dreams despite challenges. A year ago we decided to get rid of our fancy things, homeschool and travel the world until further notice. Then in October 2017, we decided to buy a van that would enable us to work, homeschool, explore the world and give back in the U.S! This 1989 Ford Econoline is a symbol of freedom and service to various communities.

Our values (L.E.G)
Give back

Some examples of what Carter and I love to do throughout our travels:

-Life coaching and delivering empowering speeches which include speaking on the issues of bullying in schools.
-Learn and explore various regions of the world while engaging with locals
-Cook delicious foods
-Host play date meetups for traveling families with kids
-Feed the homeless
-Rescue animals
-Clean up beaches

Right now we wish to relaunch an anti-bullying nonprofit foundation called the Bully Barricade Foundation. It is going to take a lot of work and we need your help!

We hope to meet many of you during our travels!
With love,

-Bionca and Carter
