Who We Are

We are a family of 4 who has given up their lives in Seattle, Washington, USA and are taking a year off.  We quit our jobs and are going to travel from Seattle to the Panama Canal in our 1982 Vanagon Camper.

Matthias is originally from Germany.
Allison was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico and grew up most of her life in the Seattle are. 
We have 2 children: William, age 4 and Julian, age 2.

We left Seattle on August 3rd, 2006 and plan on returning  back to Seattle sometime around June 2007.

Here is a picture of us in Costa Rica on Thanskgiving 2006.

    Hi Matthias & Allison,
    I was going through my database and came upon Matthias’ name in the list of my old clients. A quick Google search brought me to your site!
    I’ve wondered where you were traveling and how it’s going. It’s neat to read about what your adventures and see the video of the kids on U-Tube. Glad you are having a good time. Hope the rest of your travels go well.
    I’m still working away at my graphic design business.
