Episode 141 - Michelle and Dale Bartlett, Helping Others Travel with Kids
Dale & Michelle Bartlett are the authors of two internationally known travel books and multiple social media sites and blog with information designed to help people travel more for much less than most could ever dream. They are best known for their first book, “Have Kids - Will Travel” and for being the family travel experts, but are quickly becoming experts on inexpensive travel for anyone, singles, couples or families. In 1997, the Bartlett’s began discovering different ways anyone can travel inexpensively and sometimes free. Their first trip with their four children to France and England cost them a total of $4000.00 including air, hotel, car rental, food and fun. They have since found ways to cut this much more drastically. As acclaimed speakers, the Bartlett’s have shared the podium with such notable personalities as New York Times Bestselling Author Richard Paul Evans, Paula Fellingham founder of The Women's Information Network, noted Author and "Get Away Guru" Larry Gelwix (real life coach of the team featured in the movie, "Forever Strong"), John Taylor Gatto, Rebecca W. Keller, Ph.D and Alice Fulton-Osborne. The Bartlett’s have been featured on television morning shows, radio programs, as well as in multiple newspapers across the country and countless articles in print.
One of the greatest blessing we have given our children is the gift of travel. We have incorporated it into every part of our lives including their homeschooling. We have found no better way to understand the wonderful diversity of the world than to travel with hands on experiences. This has opened up our children's minds like nothing else could. It has given them the opportunity to share their views and feelings about what they see and learn. It has in many ways given them a deeper appreciation of what they have been blessed with.
One of the reasons families don't experience this kind of world travel is often because the cost far exceeds the budget. We have discovered ways that blow away the budget excuse. We have traveled 3 weeks in Europe with 4 children in tow for around $2500.00 total (that is for all 6 of us). That includes air, accommodations, transportation, food, fun and more. Come learn our secrets in this fascinating journey and about the incredible experiences that have come from our adventures.

"You can't read that in a book, you can't watch that in a movie and get the same experience that we had."
"It is not possible for everyone to everywhere and experience every part of history, we totally realize that. But I think that with the travel we were able to do, it sparked something that made our kids more excited to learn more about different things."
"To me the lessons we have learned traveling apply to life, everything is negotiable."
"That really lives at our core as travelers and a vision that just really becomes very simple to us, yet very profound in the way that the world truly is."
