            josh 一家来自澳大利亚 只有结婚和新年的时候他们才回过家,其余时间带着两个孩子一家人都在世界各地旅行,他们没有中彩票也并不富裕,他们是怎样在世界各地旅行的呢?资金来源于哪里?这是一种新的旅游形式,在房奴成风的中国比较少见。josh一家在旅行过程中积累了很多经验和小贴士都分享在网站内。他们的网站拥有10万的读者,他们的旅行节目在黄金强档播出,选择家庭式周游世界的模式就会感受不到社会的模式。而他们说做就做了,我们来听一下他们的自我介绍,或许能带给你一些生活上的灵感。


太棒了,你发现我们了!你现在已经开始和Bender家庭旅行了。

我们从2012年起就把我们的家留在了澳大利亚的Perth,除了在2014年初我们短暂的回到Perth的家中举行婚礼和过圣诞节以外,我们自那时起就一直是周游世界的状态。

无限制的旅行听起来像梦想成真一样。那么,我们为什么这么做呢?我们喜欢新的体验很想看看更多关于这个世界的美好。成堆的乐趣,但是这也是一个让我们学到很多的经验和体会。我们在拥有这些之前就喜欢旅行,坦率的说,没有什么可以阻止我们。相反,我们被问到的最常见的问题是-不,我们没有中彩票,我们只是普通的澳大利亚夫妇,用笔记本电脑和互联网连接世界。我们无论在哪里都持续性的做一些工作。


Get to know our blog

Awesome! You found us! You are now travelling with the Bender family.

We left our home in Perth, Australia many moons ago in May 2012 and, other than a brief stint back in Perth for Christmas and a wedding in early 2014, we have been travelling the world nomadically ever since.

Open-ended travel sounds like a dream come true. So why do we do it? We love new experiences and seeing more of this wonderful world. Its heaps of fun, but its also a rich learning experience for all four of us. We loved travelling before kids, and frankly, they werent going to stop us.

Contrary to the most common question we get asked – no, we have not won lotto. We are just an ordinary Australian couple who use our laptops, internet connection and a bit of creativity to keep working on the road wherever we go.


我们去过许许多多的国家,住过大概有100个酒店和公寓。所以我们在路上学一两件事,喜欢分享这些旅行小贴士给那些冒险探险那些异国的遥远的短假期或者假设有当地的宝藏在某个角落里的人们。有时候全家旅行是项大工程,特别是对父母和孩子们来说,所以我们很希望能够启发也迈出奇妙旅行的第一步,改变人生的旅程,展示给你们如果我们可以,那你们也一定可以。

在旅途中我们遇到许多迷人的人们,获得许多或丰富或窘迫或愉快的经验。这对我们来说是一种疗愈方式,恒古不变的是每天都是不一样的。你可以通过我们的网站了解我们的家庭或者参与我们的旅程,但是记得机票不报销哦~


We have been to dozens of countries and stayed in over 100 hotels and apartments. So weve learned a thing or two along the way and enjoy sharing these tips with others who are looking to venture out to an exotic distant getaway or perhaps a local jewel just around the corner. Sometimes it may seem a little overwhelming travelling, especially for parents with young kids, so we are hoping to inspire you to take that first step out the front door on a marvellous, life-changing journey, and show you that if we can do it, so can you.

Weve connected with fascinating people during our travels, and have experienced dizzying highs and the occasional lows. This blog is our way of documenting and sharing our experiences in a transparent, fun and entertaining way. Its a form of therapy for us - a constant anchor to focus on when every day is different. And its a neat way you can get to know our family and join our journey without paying for a plane ticket.


我们开始我们的博客是不想和许多相类似的家庭和朋友一样。但是有越来越多的人开始跟着我们旅行让我们开始把注意力转向父母,夫妻和喜欢单独旅行者。现在我们的博客每个月拥有将近10万来自世界各地的读者。我们出现在黄金时段的电视节目中,全国性的报纸和杂志还有一些网站像是《HuffPost》。这一切来的很迅速,但是我们仍然很努力的工作想让你们获得更好的。所以谢谢你发现我们。我们也很想听听你们的想法。所以可以评论我们的博客。在facebook Twitter,、Pinterest and Instagram上联系我们。加入我们的邮件订阅。然后来我们这里,这会很有趣。


We initially started the blog so we didnt have to repeat the same stories to numerous family and friends. But as more and more people started following our journey we shifted our focus on becoming a unique and invaluable travel resource to parents, couples and singles alike. Now our blog reaches tens of thousands of readers from all over the world each month and has been featured in national prime time TV programs, national newspapers, magazines and major websites like HuffPost.

我是这个网站的建立人和作者,这是我的一个小小宝贝,虽然已经不小了。

我很享受这样书写的感觉只要我记得。我从来不知道我的激情在与表达和在旅行的成就上。我在很小的时候会喜欢写小说。在市场营销学位上我是一个社交媒体专家,所以你会在facebook上看到我。你会发现我是一个透明的,平易近人的可以为一餐饭而感到快乐的人。

近距离的接触我,你会感受到我乐观的个性,大大咧咧的和豪爽。( and the first to organise a party. Ill be first in line at the theme park roller coaster but cant stomach the spinning teacups anymore不懂这句话的意思)。

在这之前我从来没有想过会有一个这样的游牧般的生活方式。我可以很确定的怪 Josh 点燃了这一切。但是这发展成了奇妙的旅行,这让我花费了更多的时间在和我可爱的孩子们待在一起。

过去的几年里,在这样的旅途不断的塑造了我。我现在更佳自然和从容一些。我曾经有过准确的人生计划-去念大学,去工作,去结婚,去按揭住房,有了孩子再退休。我已经很久没有感受到这样的社会模式了,现在已经不是那个既定的生活路线了,可以由我自己选择。所有的原来的打算都已经打破了,虽然是个好办法。

旅行中的人生路线总是让人激动不已,计划外的、激动的、吓人的和获益匪浅的。这一砖一瓦的建造都靠你一点一点地选择。世界对我来说小了很多,那些看上去很远的距离对我来说也很近了。在这个星球上朋友会遍布在任何角落里。家不再是一个固定的地方、不再是一个房间、不再是一个房子或者公寓,而是一种感觉。作为一名热爱阅读的人来说,我读各式样的小说。,我不能在睡觉之前没有阅读。之所以是我因为我阅读。人们说:世界是一本书那些不旅行的人就没有读过这本书。我从来不会扔下我还没有读完的书。所以,我猜想我会在旅行和写作上还要很久很久。

I am the founder and senior writer of this blog, and this is my little baby. Well, not so little any more.

Ive enjoyed writing as long as I can remember. I just never knew my passion would find its expression and fulfilment in travel, since I enjoyed dabbling in fiction writing when I was younger.

With a Degree in Marketing, I am a seasoned specialist in social media so you can always catch me on Facebook chatting away. Youll find Im transparent, accessible and always available for a laugh or a meal.

Up close Im a Sanguine personality, which is loud and proud, and the first to organise a party. Ill be first in line at the theme park roller coaster but cant stomach the spinning teacups anymore.

I never considered a nomadic travel lifestyle before all this; I can firmly blame Josh for igniting that spark. But its blossomed into a wondrous journey and Im now able to spend much more quality time with my adorable kids.

The last few years have moulded me in unexpected ways. Im now more spontaneous and far easier going. I had precise life plan expectations - go to university, get a job, get married, get a mortgage, have kids and finally retire. I no longer feel the pull of that social pattern. There is no longer a predetermined path; its open to my choosing. The plans have been messed up, but in a good way. Lifes winding route is exciting, unplanned, scary, stimulating and more rewarding. Its built brick by brick with small choices every day.

The world is so much smaller to me now. Places that seemed so distant are really much closer. Friends are found on every corner of this planet. Home is no longer a fixed address, no longer a room, or a house or an apartment. Its a feeling.

As an avid reader, I devour every kind of fiction. I cannot go to sleep without reading. I am because I read.

They say that the world is a book and those who dont travel read only a page. Id never leave a book that Im reading unfinished, so I guess Ill be travelling and writing for quite a while longer. 



Josh

大家好啊,我是这一切经营和操作的大脑。不,这不是真的!但是我拥有15年的网络开发的经验和互联网市场营销的经验。我知道互联网的那些两三事。所以这想当然的帮我们建立起了TravelWithBender.com 这个在其他旅游微博中脱颖而出的网站你一定看过。鉴于6英尺9英寸的我(2米多),的确高于其他家伙,但是知道我的人都说我是个温和的巨人(除了在篮球场上)。

我爱我的妻子和孩子胜过一切。家庭是首要任务,这个网站也是我给孩子们童年时代最好的礼物。这可以把他们塑造成为全面发展的人和拥有更多理解和同情的人。这也同样给到他们对于居住的这个“地球家园”更深层次的了解,为他们提供更独特的学习的资源,而不是教室的四面墙而已。

我本质上是一个书呆子,一直着迷于技术,从设备到软件到通讯,这些都俘虏了我的想象力。你可以在博客里经常看到我穿着技术员的t-恤。带着我强烈的创业嗜好,我的思考带着创造力和解析力,你不会发现我在浪费时间。我几乎没有耐心在电视和游戏上。我喜欢学习很多东西,特别理解什么让人们不同什么铸就人们- 文化、宗教、哲学、政治、经济、遗传学和环境。它可以帮助我更好的了解自己以及建立有意义的联系。其次,就是什么让这个世界不同,从地质历史到天文学,生物学,我发现了这迷人的一切。我非常喜欢摄影,特别是风景。我想我的摄影让我们的旅行变得越来越好和长久,我们也几次升级了相机。我一直迫使自己去尝试新的技术,发现新的灵感,提升后期制作技能,发展我的艺术鉴赏力。和我对摄影保持一致热情的还有各式样的设计比如,平面设计,工业设计,建筑,室内设计,工艺设计等。与之吻合的还有我喜欢烹饪的快乐,这就很好的解释了nstagram里呈现出的那些美丽食物的盘子,那都是我们所吃的。可以看到我们的食物的准备、烹饪的技巧和灵感的过程。是香味、历史和文化融入餐饮的喜悦时刻。很少有东西比这个更好。

所以,希望你了解到了我多了一些,接下来让我来介绍我的女儿mia...



Josh

Gday! Im the brains behind the operation. No, not really! But with over 15 years experience in web development and a decade in Internet Marketing, I do know a thing or two about websites. So that has certainly helped make the TravelWithBender.com website stand out from the array of other travel blogs you may have read.

Standing at 69 (205cm), Im slightly taller than the average bloke, but people who know me would say Im a gentle giant (except when Im on the basketball court).

I love my wife and kids more than anything else. Family is my first priority. And its because of this that I am giving the gift of travel to my kids while theyre young. It will shape and mould them to become more well-rounded individuals and develop more compassion and understanding for their fellow man. It will also give them a deeper appreciation for this planet we call home and provide them with unique learning experiences that they wont find within the four walls of a classroom.

A nerd at heart, Ive always been fascinated with technology. From gadgets to software and even communications, it captures my imagination. Chances are youll probably find photos of me on this blog wearing a technology-inspired t-shirt.

With a strong entrepreneurial bent, Im always thinking creatively and analytically. You wont find me wasting time. I have very little patience for TV or games. I love to learn about everything, in particular understanding what makes people tick and the factors that mould them - culture, religion, philosophy, politics, economics, genetics, and environment. It helps me to better understand myself as well as make meaningful connections. And secondly, what makes this world tick. From geology to history to astronomy to biology, I find it all captivating.  

I thoroughly enjoy photography and in particular, landscapes. Id like to think my photography has been getting better the longer we travel, and it also helps that I upgraded my camera a couple times. Im always pushing myself forward trying new techniques, finding new inspirations, honing post-production skills, and developing my artistic eye. 

In line with my passion for photography, I find inspiration from all forms of design: graphic design, industrial design, architecture, interior design, and fine crafts.

That dovetails with my keen delight of the culinary arts, and probably explains why a healthy slice of my Instagram photos are dedicated to perfection on a plate. We are what we eat. So theres something deeply meaningful about understanding the produce, preparation, techniques and inspiration that goes into each dish we enjoy. The combination of flavours, history and culture merge into a moment of dining delight. There are few things better than that.

So hopefully you now know me a little better, let me introduce you to my daughter Mia…



mia

hi, 我是米亚,我的妈妈和爸爸让我在这里说几句话。

我喜欢去游泳池,喜欢和爸爸一起画画,像仙女一样的跳舞和喜欢吃妈妈煮的好吃的。

我真的不喜欢很多人的博物馆,但是只要妈妈和爸爸带我去游乐场我就高兴了。

在家里我喜欢煮东西,帮助爸爸打扫厨房,SpongeBob SquarePants 是我最喜欢的节目之一。

我们到了一个新地方以后我喜欢交一些新朋友,和我的玩具一起。

我现在还有一些生疏但是我能用十国语言数数的,学习数字也很有趣。

我每天都开心基本上。

很多时候,我很喜欢吃冰淇淋-特别是SpongeBob SquarePants冰淇淋。很好吃!

现在让爸爸妈妈说一些:

mia是我们的活泼的善于交际的6岁孩子。mia也是我们的小奇迹。她让我们抱了1年半的念想终于出现在我们面前的小苹果。

他很活泼和贴心,绝对是一个小天使,在她12个月大的时候就喜欢玩ipadiphone2年教会了自己如厕,这证明了她是一个非常积极能动的和非常果敢的。

在过去的几年里她把她的创造力从绘画、跳舞发展到了做饭。

这个水宝宝在她还不会走路之前就已经游泳像一个鱼一样-能抓住任何一个跳入到游泳池和海洋里的机会。

她一出生就非常的独立。她总是喜欢独处,把她放在没有人接触到她的床上。我不会忘记我们和我的妈妈在车上,她的姐姐在后座想要试着让她入睡,她就是不睡直到我说不要看着她。他们两个都看着窗外,她就一会儿睡着了。她和她的父亲一样安静敏感。

mia现在长大成了一个漂亮的女孩儿,我们都很为她骄傲-她善良的性格,关心自然和甜蜜的精神。

她总是喜欢世界各地的交朋友,总是会离开餐桌和其他的食客们聊天。

她是一个真正的关心者和支持者,她的弟弟是她的拉拉队长。如果小家伙(Caius)不是和我们一起,我们的世界是不完整的。



Mia

Hi, Im Mia and my mummy and daddy asked me to say a few words.

I like going to the pool, drawing with daddy, dancing like a fairy and eating yummy food.

I dont really like big people museums, but as long as mum and dad take me to a playground afterwards Im happy.

At home I love to cook and help daddy clean the kitchen. SpongeBob SquarePants is one of my favourite shows.

In new places we visit I like meeting new friends and playing with toys together.

Im a bit rusty now, but Ive learned to count to 10 in four different languages. Learning about numbers is also fun.

Im happy most of the time.

And most of all, I really like to eat ice cream – especially SpongeBob SquarePants ice cream. Yummy!

Now from Mum & Dad:

Mia is our vivacious, sociable 6 year old. Mia is also our little miracle child. She took over a year and a half to conceive and is now the apple of our eye.

She is funny and sweet, and an absolute angel. She loves gadgets and mastered the iPad/iPhone when she was just 12 months old. Toilet trained by 2 years, she proved to be super motivated and ultra determined.

Her love for all things creative has blossomed over the last few years, taking the form of drawing, painting, dancing and now cooking.

A water baby from before she could walk, she took to water like a fish – donning floaties as a baby and jumping in the pool or ocean at any chance she got. 

She was fiercely independent from birth. She always wanted to be left alone, put in her cot with no one talking to her or touching her. I will never forget the day we were in the car and my mum and sister were in the back with her trying to get her to go to sleep. She was not even 1 and I said dont look at her. They both looked out the window and she very happily nodded off to sleep.

She takes after her father in a quiet, sensitive way. She doesnt like movies that are too scary.

Mia has grown into a beautiful young girl and as parents we are absolutely proud of her – her kind personality, caring nature and sweet spirit.

She loves making friends all over the world and will often ask to be excused from the dining table at a restaurant to go chat with other diners. 

But she is genuinely caring and supportive, and her little brothers biggest cheerleader. The world is not right if he is not with us.



Caius

我让小Caius说几句话关于他自己,但是他不感兴趣。

现在是她的爸爸妈妈说一些:

这是我们的小Caius,一个2岁就离开澳大利亚的孩子现在已经5岁了。他花了将近一半的时候旅行了50多个国家。

这就是为什么他喜欢(Dora the Explorer

Caius又是一位在他姐姐之后又一个等待了很久的惊喜,他们只差了16个月,这让他们年轻的时候可以更有趣。在他们老了以后,他俩可以成为很好的朋友相亲相爱。

他有他自己觉得正确的方式,他坚定、自信专注的像道激光。如果他说天空是绿色的那天空就是绿色的。他也很喜欢玩iphoneipad,这是他最大的消遣。

他使用很多教育应用。从2岁起就能很自信的拼写单词和统计数字。他很可能比他爸爸更聪明。

他可以在任何地方睡眠,当他休息好了他就是友好的,快乐的。如果他睡眠不足就会脾气暴躁。他2岁的时候就能在水里独立的游动。他不介意他处在哪个国家哪个附近的操场上。

他最喜欢的食物是哈密瓜、奶昔和薯片。他是我们这个世界上最喜欢的小男孩,Caius让我们的世界完整。


Caius

I asked Caius to say a few words about himself, but he wasnt that interested. 

Now from Mum & Dad:

And so this is Caius (pronounced Kay-Us). Caius was 2 years old when we left Australia and is now 5. He has spent half his life travelling the world, having visited over 50 countries along the way. It probably explains why he loves Dora the Explorer.

Caius was a welcome surprise after the long wait for his sister. They are only 16 months apart, which brought its fair share of interesting moments when they were younger. Now as they get older, Caius and Mia are best friends and they love every moment together.

He has his own way, which is the right way. He is determined, confident and focused like a laser. If he says the sky is green, then the sky is green.

He, too, loves gadgets mastering the iPhone and iPad at an early age. It is definitely his favourite pastime. In fact he was given iTunes vouchers for his 2nd birthday, as friends were aware we were leaving the country and needed small travel-friendly gifts. He uses many educational apps and could confidently spell words and count numbers from as early as 2 years old. Hes probably going to be smarter than his Dad.

Caius can sleep anywhere. When he is well rested he is smiley, cheery and friendly. When he hasnt slept enough he can be down right grumpy.

He loves to be in the water and learned to swim independently by the time he was 2 years old. He doesnt mind what country hes in this week as long as a playground is nearby.

His favourite food is rockmelon (cantaloupe), milkshakes and chips (hopefully not all at the same time).

He is our favourite little boy in all the world and takes after Erin a lot. He makes our lives complete.
