We’re Charlie and Colleen Carswell, high school sweet-hearts turned hotel-hopping homeschoolers.
We grew up in a small town, left to travel the world, and eventually found our way back so our four kids could grow up around family.
After years traveling on cruise ships, working in hotels and living in big cities full of vibrant and diverse people, we knew it would be more important than ever to find a way to show our kids the vastness of humanity outside of just one small, rural mountain town in North Carolina.
So in 2021, the week after giving birth to our pandemic baby, we knew it was time to choose family over fear (or what we call: FOFO) and dive head first into building our dream life. It’s not been easy – quitting jobs, starting a family business, taking on homeschooling – but it’s been a journey well traveled and we look forward to the many adventures still to come.
