Today’s guests on the Expat Money Show are Jessica & Will Suero. Since 2014 they have been travelling the world - one hometown at a time. Together with their free-spirited children, Avalon and Largo, the family have visited 70 countries in their quest to provide a global education for their children, while building a deeper bond as a family. Over the past six years, these ‘WorldTowners' have found themselves hiking 580 miles along the Camino Trail in Spain, motorhoming through every country in Europe, and, most recently, buying a sailboat in France to sail the world's oceans. The Sueiro family are currently located in the Mediterranean and will head west wherever the wind takes them, with the goal of circumnavigating the globe.

Through coaching, group expeditions and the sharing of their travels on the family YouTube channel, the Sueiro’s have documented their entire journey, to show the magic (and realities) of full-time travel.
