Kristen and Siya from Hopscotch the Globe have been traveling for nearly 10 years and documenting their adventures on their blog, and on YouTube.

In this video, they talk about how they got started, how they get paid to travel, and how they plan to continue traveling now that they have a baby.

You can follow their adventures here:

and here:

The couple has an Airstream trailer that they use as a tiny home base in Canada between international trips, but for the first year with their baby, they’ve rented an apartment to have a bit of extra stability.

They provide great travel advice for the dozens of countries they’ve visited, and they also have different perspectives on travel since they mix it up and go on solo trips, couple trips, and now they travel with a baby. We hope you’ll check them out!

Thanks for watching!

  1. lol hipsters… more power to yah, but man, it's so nice to stay at home all the time and grow a garden throughout the year, and never worry about catching flights. I'll work till I'm 40 making bank, then never travel and raise a small farm. Isn't it funny how different people have such different ideal versions of what makes a good life?

  2. I love Kristen & Siya! It's so cool to see them featured here! I also appreciate how they mention Canada being an incredible country to explore. Being Canadian myself, my default wanderlust is for countries abroad, but my own country is HUGE and has so much to explore. Each province has something beautiful and unique to experience.

  3. This is so awesome I wish i could live and travel like this I'm a single dad and I'd love to get my son out in to the world to show him other ways that people live not just the one way every normal person expects you to live, live out of your box be adventurous so cool I love hearing about people living these different life styles ❤️

  4. Thank you so much for sharing these two with us so we can "see" another way of life I'm hitting 70 soon and moving to Az this fall to travel and explore the whole west ( mostly southwest ) "out there" I think is a little late for me BUT will enjoy the US as much as possible for as long as possible Enjoy our videos Keep having fun out there
