A trip around the world is on the bucket lists of many, but for the Fisher family, travelling could become their career.

According to Wales Online, the family of four from Porthcawl, Wales, are quitting their jobs and selling everything they own in order to fund an around the world trip, from which they do not have a return ticket.

Known as the Travel The World Family, they will document their journey on Instagram and via a YouTube channel which will be launched before they embark after the festive period at the end of this year.

Clare Fisher, 31, and her husband Ian, 28, are taking their two kids — five-year-old son Kallan and three-year-old daughter Maddison — out of school to embark on the adventure.

They are trying to save as much money as they can by selling their belongings, including cars, handbags, and even plan to sell their furniture and stay with family before their departure, according to Wales Online.

They have planned out the first eight months of the trip — which will see them visit Majorca, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, Australia, and Fiji — but have yet to decide when — or whether — they will return. A second leg of their journey could take them to the United States and Canada.

“There’s no limit on how long we go for,” Clare said. “We have planned the first eight months location wise and then we will come back to see family and friends and then, potentially, we will be going on the second part of our trip.”
