Explore the World, Discover Yourself

Making Travel Transformational, One Trip at a Time

Hi, we’re Stephen & Jane!

We used to have it all… a gorgeous house, two cars, and great jobs that paid well. There was just one problem. We weren’t happy.

So we traded it all in for two bicycles, a couple of yoga mats, and a trip around the world. That journey helped us discover who we really are and uncover the keys to our own happiness. Read our story

What the heck does My Five Acres mean?

There’s a finite amount of land on Earth. If you divided it equally between all people alive today, we’d each get about 5 acres to satisfy all our needs: food, water, shelter, iPhones… It sounds like a lot, until you discover that a typical Western lifestyle uses the equivalent of 15–25 acres!

The name My Five Acres is a reminder to tread lightly, wherever you go.
