The Jetsetting Family Travel Podcast

By The Jetsetting Family

Hi there, we're Jess and Rod! In 2018 we decided that we wanted to travel more together, so we sold our house (and most of our stuff) and left on a full-time travel adventure with our two kids (ages 2 and 5 at the time). Since then, we've visited more than 50 countries while working as content creators. In this podcast we share stories of our favorite destinations, tips for traveling with kids, and how you can work with travel brands like we do. So come listen in or find us on Instagram @thejetsettingfamily!

Introducing The Jetsetting Family Travel Podcast

Rod and Jessica Sanchez thought they had it all… A comfortable home, comfortable jobs, and a comfortable routine. The "American Dream" was theirs for the taking. But what if that dream didn’t turn out to be their dream? The more they worked, the less time they got to spend together. During their children’s most formative years, they’d be spending the majority of their time away from them. The more they thought about it, the less it made sense. Turns out, either they’re really impatient or they weren&apost made to live that kind of life to begin with. Because of this, they decided to sell everything, quit their jobs and travel the world as the Jetsetting Family.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
