(Site in German and English, click the flag)

We are a family of four with two boys. Our trip has started a long time ago. Actually, long ago we decided that whether we settled somewhere or moved on the road, all was part of a trip. That we could travel inwards and outwards. In 2005 to 2007 we backpacked mostly on public transport from Europe to Asia and back via Russia. In 2008 to last January we lived and worked in rural China and since then we have been travelling in a camper starting in Philadelphia, USA heading southwards to Central and maybe Southern America.

We have a non-profit ministry called Passion to Action (P2A) and our mission is to inspire, empower and mobilize people to put their faith in action.

I'm a single mom of three (ages 9, 11, & 13). I started this Journey hoping we'd become closer to each other, to Nature, and to finding a Spiritual "sense" of which each person discovers and interprets from their own experiences (I just hoped to give some fuel to that fire). I've been working on our web site for a little over 1/2 a year and it's literally taking on a proverbial life of its own. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I love creating it!

Mary Ann realized that both teenagers would soon be starting their own lives and there were many fun experiences yet to do together. While letting go of their Orange County, California lifestyle was hard, the opportunity to see the United States and Canada for three years was a dream worth following. Dave and Sarah self-direct their high-school curriculum inspired by location, museums and geography. Mel joins "The Grand Adventure" ten days each month. Setting free has been the hardest and easiest thing we've ever done, the rewards are numerous, and the memories priceless.
