Welcome to My Five Acres Mindful Travel Blog!

Hey, we’re Stephen & Jane.

In 2013, we quit our jobs and sold all our stuff so we could take a leap into the unknown — and live our biggest adventure yet.

We now travel full-time and teach Adventure Yoga, helping people around the world figure out what they want and find the courage to go get it. Here’s how we changed our lives

We engage in mindful travel; we travel as responsibly and sustainably as we can through this amazing world.

On My Five Acres, you’ll find all the tools you need to discover and plan your next great mindful adventure!

What is Mindful Travel?

Mindful travel is about paying attention to your impact on the environments and cultures you visit. It means engaging in responsible tourism by ensuring your travel dollars go directly to local people and local economies. It means selecting your accommodation and transportation carefully to make as little impact on the environment as possible. Mindful travel is about treating people with respect, no matter what.

Mindful travel is not just an external force; it’s also about your internal journey.

It’s about being aware of how challenges and changes — at home and and the road — impact your mind and body. It’s about incorporating the experiences travel brings into your life. It’s about expanding and stepping out of your comfort zone, to make you into a stronger, happier, more vital person.

Mindful travel is about creating positive change, both in yourself and the destinations you visit.

We hope you’ll join us on this journey to becoming more mindful!

  Happy mindful adventures, Stephen & Jane
