‘Why We Roam’ Season 3 Debuts Featuring the Holcombes

It’s time to kick off season 3 of our Why We Roam series! This episode features Kathy and Peter Holcombe.

When the Holcombes sold their home in 2014 and moved their family and photography business into a 170-square-foot Winnebago View for a year-long road trip, they had no idea of the impact that one fateful decision would have on, well, pretty much everything.  

That first year on the road was a time of letting go. Letting go of their house and mortgage, the photography studio, and all the trappings of life in the suburbs. Once they let go of the external pressures to “get ahead,” they found themselves with an abundance of time and freedom to pursue projects and adventures and ultimately allow themselves to sculpt a lifestyle beyond their wildest dreams.

One year on the road became two, and then three years became five. Now there is no end in sight. After nine years of exploring North America and beyond, the Holcombes have their sights set on taking their Winnebago Revel around the world. They are currently at 23 countries and counting.

They are on a mission to share their journey in hopes of inspiring you to get outside, spend time with the people you love, and go on your own adventure. Learn more about the Holcombes and their journey at https://www.famagogo.com/.
