Travel Planning

Let us create your customized plan for the WorldTowning adventure you seek. With our Navigator travel planning package, we help you define your destination, design your experience and complete all the planning logistics necessary to get you launched. Through in-depth discussions, we learn your family and personal goals for your WorldTowning journey. We then work together, sharing information through Skype calls and emails to create a customized plan, complete with background resources, timelines and one-on-one mentorship. This unique service ensures you have everything you need to be successful in your launch. We are with you every step of the way to make your dream of living in another country a reality.


Today, the Internet and other advancements make it possible to learn in a variety of settings. Let us help you discover your options, so you can tailor your children’s education to your WorldTowning lifestyle and the cultural opportunities that surround you.

Homeschooling groups – Homeschooling parents more intimately guide their children’s day-to-day education. We help you find organizations and groups that will help you build friendships, ease your transition and support your role as a homeschooler.

Religious education – Faith-based schooling supports both religious and learning objectives. We look for options that fit with your family’s education and faith objectives.

Local schools – Local schools give children the opportunity to delve deep into a culture in an up-close and personal way. We explore language and other requirements to help guide your decision.

International schools – Originally established for expatriates, international schools follow national and international curriculum requirements, going beyond a region-specific education. We provide information about availability and offerings.

Language schools – Learning a new language can be fun and eye-opening, but it can also be challenging. We can help you find options that will have you conversing with the locals in no time.

Remote business services

Many businesses today can be operated remotely. There are considerations, however. From our experience, intimate knowledge and ongoing education, we offer insights that can help you maintain your business while living your dream.

Visa requirements

Each country has different visa requirements. The type of visa you get determines how long you can stay in a particular place. We have navigated these waters, and we give you the information you need to know to ensure your visa paperwork is in proper order.

Travel resources

Augment your experience with learning. We can direct you to classes, recommend relevant documentaries and books, and suggest other resources to help you learn more about your destination before, during and after your adventure.


Managing finances while in a different culture can be daunting at first. We help you navigate the available resources, requirements and banking systems to give you a seamless financial transition.

Packing tips

WorldTowning is not like vacationing. There are things you will want to take with you and things you should leave behind. As expert WorldTowners, we share with you our best practices for packing.

Medical information

Navigating the medical system in any country can be a challenge, but it can be particularly difficult when you are living in a different culture. We tell you what you need to know about hospitals, doctors, insurances, and the vaccines you may need for specific countries, so that you can go about your travel without worrying about your health.


Moving to a new place can be daunting. We research the area to help you find the right home for your family. We have housing options available through our WorldTowning services and our vast community of WorldTowning friends. We work beyond that, however, exploring the area to help you find the right place for you.


For people of faith, finding a place of worship is important. Through church, WorldTowners can anchor themselves to familiar practices, even while living in an unfamiliar setting. We guide you to the places where you can connect with fellow worshippers.


Availability of technological resources, such as Internet and phone, varies vastly from region to region and country to country. You can easily incur unnecessary expenses by not knowing your options. We give you the information you need about available services and how to best fit technological offerings to your needs.

Through social media, we can form community with people all over the world. Based on your interests, your travel plans and your goals, we will recommend social media groups to engage, encourage and inspire you.


Most people travel, so they can experience the beauty and rich culture that this world has to offer. We research your area of interest to provide you with must-see places and local travel destinations (including transportation and lodging information), tailored to your specific passions.


Exploring the foods of other cultures can be one of the most exciting experiences of WorldTowning. We steer you to the area’s favorite dining establishments to give you the best that your particular region has to offer.

Going to the grocery store in a foreign place can be an adventure as well. We offer recommendations, based on your preferences (organic, vegan and more), to help you find the places that support your lifestyle.

Emotional support

Becoming a WorldTowner takes courage. Sometimes, you need someone to help you navigate all the emotions that are involved – yours and those of your family members. We can help!

This list is only a small sample of what we will discuss.
