About And Three to Go

Chad and Jennifer are in their early thirties, have a two year old daughter and not only love, but crave new adventures and travel! Follow along with them while they write about their decision to travel, what it took to start the process and what happens as they take their toddler traipsing around the world. Together, the three of them are ready to go and hope to not only keep in touch with you through this blog but also hope to help those wanting to travel as well.

Update November 2013

So far we have been traveling for 8 months now and still going strong. We have traveled to a couple of places in the USA, Curacao, Portugal, Paris (just Disneyland Paris though), Budapest, Greece, Taiwan, and now Thailand.  We have no plan to stop traveling any time soon, so make sure to follow and check back often to see what we are up to.

Update March 2014

We have now been traveling almost a full year and have settled with a home base in Phuket, Thailand. Zoë is now almost three years old and has spent most of her life traveling all over the world. Chad and I, well, our  exact age can remain a secret (over 30 is all I will say), and we have enjoyed every second of our nomadic life.

We are not giving up the traveling life yet though. We have plans to visit Tokyo, Japan and are also headed back to the States for a visit in the next month. We still have many more countries to visit on our bucket list. We will write about all our travels (and our life here in Phuket) here at And Three To Go.  Thanks for stopping by and checking us out!

  1. Hi Jennifer and Chad, What a wonderful adventure you have ahead of you. I applaud your decision to go traveling, and I can say from personal experience that it’s going to blow your minds – in a good way! Wishing you all the best on your journey, Terri

    • Yes, for now we are. 🙂 We are currently trying to figure out what’s next for us. We really want to spend some more time in Asia, but also want to see parts of South America and tons more in Europe. My hope is that we can do this for a lot longer, with 2-3 months in each country as we go along, but we have no planned end date. It could be 3 years or three months. 🙂

  2. Great! This is one of my dreams. How did you manage it? I mean, I don’t know if you can answer me but I’d like to know how did you find the money to travel for so many months? How did you solve this problem? In any case, you are fantastic!

    • Thanks for stopping by!
      There were a couple of things we did, we used airline mile credit cards to pay all of our bills for two years before we left which saved us tons of money on flights, hotels and rental cars. Also chad works part time on the road doing computer systems documentation and also has authored a book that is on Amazon.
      We feel very blessed to be on this journey. The hardest decision was the decision to go, once we did that, everything else fell into place. 🙂 have a great day!

  3. It’s nice to come across your travels as well! We are planning to spend a few months in Greece this fall, and your posts about Greece have lots of great information. We’ll also have to read more about your time in Budapest and Thailand, other places we hope to visit soon. Take care 🙂

  4. I’m planning a week long trip to Curacao in May with two of my best friends and happened to stumble across your blog post while researching. Your review was definitely the most informative and gave such great insight that I began to peruse your other travel posts.
    Let me just say what you’re doing is truly inspiring and amazing! It’s such a social cliche that when you have a child, you ultimately settle down in suburbia somewhere and never do anything adventurous or fun. Your year long story is a testament to how UNTRUE that is. My next two bucket list countries are Greece and Thailand and I will most definitely be referring back to this blog.
    Thank you for sharing your journey and warm wishes!

  5. I just found this blog by searching “Phuket”. My husband and I, with our four year old, are planning to set off for at least a year abroad by the end of summer. We’d like to begin in Thailand, most likely Phuket. Can you share why you chose Phuket, and how you like it so far? How long do you plan on staying? And have you thought about or looked into school options yet? My little girl will be kindergarten age next September. Thank you for sharing. I hope you and your family are having a magical adventure!

    • Hello! I am so glad that you found our blog. I love that you and your family are going to be long term traveling, we have loved it so far and I would love to help in any way I can. So with that, here are the answers to your questions…
      We chose Phuket because we have been here in the past and although we didn’t much like it then, most of it is set up nicely for those that love beaches, lots of things to do, and have kids. We considered Koh Samui, but were afraid we would get bored, and we tried Hua him, but it was just too slow and there was next to nothing for children to do. Of course we were looking for somewhere to make our home base while we travel more, not just visit. We have been here for 2 months now and I love it. We have made friends, our daughter Zoë has made friends, and we are never want for something to do. We will be here for at least a year (in between traveling often). Zoë is not even three yet, but we have been looking into pre-schools and international schools here and there are some that are very highly recommended. I can give you more info on that as the time nears.
      I hope that answers your questions, and if you have any more or want to meet up when you arrive in Phuket you can email me at andthreetogo@yahoo.com.
      Happy travels and good luck!

      • Thank you for the quick reply and useful information. I will certainly look you up when we arrive in Phuket. Is there a particular website on Phuket or Thailand you recommend ?

      • I have used a few, but most of the information I have is from past experience, exploration, and word of mouth. Chickynet.com is a great way to meet other expat women in Thailand. Also the wiki travel site on Phuket is pretty good.
