Family Abroad

START HERE

Welcome to FamilyAbroad.com ! We are so excited to share our journey with you! We are the McClure family, a Texas family of five with origins in Mexico and the United States. You will see both our successes and our failures and hopefully, you can learn from them both. Or, just follow along to see the places we go, the beauty we see, and the things we do. If you are reading this post, it is probably your first time here. For that reason, we created this “Start Here” page to help direct you to some of our very best resources. All we ask from you is to have patience as we build up to our content – I promise that it will be well worth the wait.

FAMILY MOTTO

We believe in our family motto, “More Stories, Less Stuff”. And even though it took us a while to get to this point, it isn’t rocket science. Stories do not come from possessing stuff. Stories come from experiences. Buying things can be great, but at some point, they put us on the merry-go-round of needing to work just to pay for stuff. We figured that if we simply spend less, we would have more time to play, explore and create stories.

We want to tell stories about the people and places we visit. Stories about new adventures, cultures, and ways of life as well as hidden landscapes, beautiful mountaintops, and to-die-for beaches. From tiny villages to spiraling cities, we will be searching for more stories.

See below how each one of us answered what this motto meant to them:

To me, more stories less stuff is really about how to live your life. Most people settle, find a stable job, have a family, and generally don’t, in my eyes, live their lives to their full

ROAD TRIPS

I prefer “More Stories, Less Worries” because it rhymes better than “More Stories, Less Stuff” and because on our adventure, we will be creating more stories and worrying a lot less.

FOOD
