Hi! We’re The Globe Trekker Family - Todd, Theresa, Jaden, Jordan, and Jett. In 2014, we sold almost everything we owned to live a life of travel. ⠀⠀⠀
We’ve been RVing the United States and Canada for over 4 years. We have plans to move to other countries and explore, starting with Asia and Central America.⠀⠀⠀
We’re honored to have you along for the adventure. Originally, I was born and raised in Louisiana. My hubby, Todd, was born in Japan and moved to Florida at 10 years old, learned English, and became a naturalized U.S. citizen. We both joined the Air Force and met while serving.⠀⠀
Where are you from? Where do you live now?⠀⠀
Breakfast in Bed? ☕️🍍🥐 NOPE! I’ll take mine in the pool please, thanks! Thanks for hooking up amazing stays in all incredible Sri Lankan properties @asia_leisure 🧜🏼♀️🐬🏝 Sorry I’ve been MIA from Instagram recently & for an unfortunate situation 😫 if you’ve followed my stories you’d know I became Super ill while in Sri Lanka & had to be Hospitalized! 😷🤧 While I travel I always like to show the truth about travel & sometimes it’s not all glitzy glamorous luxury “IG huge ass breakfast in pool” life you see on content creators galleries. There’s always a bad side to everything ig fam, which I think makes you appreciate the good! 😇👿 Although I was severely sick and had to cut my trip short this situation won’t discourage me from traveling & working remotely...ever. On the contrary it will fuel my motivation to keep going. While I’ve been on the mend in Scotland my second home & at the same time seeing all the horrible fires spreading in my hometown in LA (family & friends have evacuated home and some have lost everything) I’m still trying to stay positive & plan my next journey because I see hope in my future & cannot become discouraged. Never give up on your dreams my IG family... even with a few bumps in the road. 📍Q: Tell me... have you ever been sick unexpectedly on a trip or travels? I bet it made you stronger no!? Leave your experiences in the comments below! Thank you ALL for your love & support during this tough time! I love you guys 💋🤙🏼 #asialiesure@legrandgalle
We dove right into a cultural experience once we arrived in Bali. We were invited to a ceremony called “Odalan” by our new friend Addi whom we met through @couchsurfing . We jumped on a motorbike in Ubud, and drove just over an hour to the village of Bangli. Addi greeted us and then dressed us in traditional clothing so we wouldn’t stand out too much. Once dressed, we walked just a couple blocks to the temple. We could hear the worship music before arrived, it all xylophones being playing in a captivating way. I could have listened to them play all day. It must have been at least 30 guys all playing in perfect synchronization. We arrived a bit early and had an hour to interact with many of the locals! I enjoyed speaking with the children who were shy but ready to practice the english they had learned in school. The ceremony began and there was a lot going on. The children dancing and offering up gifts to the gods while in another corner of the temple was a man telling a story of the gods with puppets. Each family arrived with gifts for the gods and laid them out to be blessed. Later it was the the adults turn to dance before moving onto prayers. With each prayer, it was so crucial to use a new flower. The flowers were considered dirty once used for a single prayer. The religious figures came around blessing people with holy water and then finished with a few grains of rice places on your forehead and chest. At the end of the ceremony, I was very curious to see what would happen with all the food offerings. My first thought would be that the people leave it for the temple members to eat. My second thought would that they would sit here until it rots and then be thrown away. Well, what actually happens is that the food is taken back by the person who brought it and then it eaten at home!! All in all, it was a pretty perfect way to start our time here in Bali. Thanks again Addi for having us and showing us such a unique experience in your country!
