24 hour Bazaar

Go ahead and ask me,"what do you want to be when you grow up and what is your American Dream?"

"I want to be this woman on top of a mountain full of colorful homemade blankets traveling the globe with my family in an RV."

While getting lost in my car this weekend, Public Radio International had a story on this family that set out to go on a vacation for six monthes. They are now two years into their trip and have no plans of coming back for another five or so. I raced into the house to listen to the podcast about how they afford to do this lifestyle and manage a family in an RV.  

Enter the cool concept of the 24 hour bazaar. 
As they travel, they connect with local artists and sell their artwork on the our open road website.

Brilliant.
