How to slow travel the world

Hello! We slow travel. On a budget in early retirement. Since 2015!

We show you how.

This is an independent blog.

We do not work with sponsors or affiliates. Ads are automatic and offset costs.


Pandemic travel planning

We constantly re-evaluate travel plans for the future.

We have a few helpful resources for the truly intrepid traveler. (And our blog updates cover the latest developments on Boracay Island.)


Continuous slow travel

We live this lifestyle because we stay on budget. (Mostly.) The key to managing your money is to control your spending.

We offer lots of information on this site on how to save money and stretch money on a nonstop travel adventure.

We also reveal our expenses in monthly reports.


Early retirement info

We retired early after many years of hard work, saving money, and making specific lifestyle choices back in the USA.

If we can do it – you can do it.


Breast cancer

Ellen’s breast cancer diagnosis and double mastectomy in a foreign country was a difficult challenge.

But she made it!


Global citizens

We Earth Vagabonds enjoy helping people on our travels.

Whether it’s the Ati indigenous tribe in the Philippines, or refugees from the Middle East and Africa, or garbage pickers in Mexico — we believe everyone deserves respect, regardless of life circumstance, and we give back when we can.

We also are big believers in Kiva.org. (Hat tip to Theo’s mom Diane.)



Thanks for checking out earthvagabonds.com.

We hope to inspire people to ‘live the dream’.

Life is Now.
