More WorldTowning – A Wanderlusting Fix!

When I was preparing for my second walk on the Camino de Santiago, I searched through Youtube to find videos made by fellow peregrinos…to put myself in the Camino mindset. That’s when I first discovered WorldTowning™. I devoured their Camino de Santiago series on Youtube. It was the next best thing to being there! Well, today I have begun a re-watch of the Camino series. I’ve been immobile with this pandemic for too long, feeling claustrophobic with a little bit of cabin fever on the side.

But first, WHAT IS WORLDTOWNING™?

They are a family of four…Will & Jessica, and their two children, Avalon & Largo. From their FACEBOOK PAGE:

WorldTowning™ is a family-run travel company committed to helping you broaden your global experiences through concentrated and immersive exposures to the world’s cultures through coaching, group trips and YouTube vlogs!

Who are we? The short answer is Will, Jessica, Avalon and Largo the WorldTowners. Well, at least we were the original WorldTowners. However, over the years, WorldTowning has expanded beyond the four of us. It has become a global movement, a lifestyle choice, a world-changing community that spans six continents and continues to grow (someone get their butt to Antarctica please).

:::

What is WorldTowning? The concept of broadening ones global understanding while bridging the people and cultures of the world.

:::

Who is a WorldTowner? Someone who is living and changing the world through travel – one hometown at a time.

That’s pretty much everything you need to know about the Sueiro family. On October 6th, 2014 they began an epic journey of which they are still on to this day. They are currently in France (in lockdown) learning how to operate their new sailboat…preparing for more future epic adventures.

Their Camino de Santiago series is so thorough, it takes those who have walked the path back to it…and shows those who dream of one day walking the path just what they will be in store for.

You’re HOME. You have time. Maybe today is a good day to begin the epic WORLDTOWNING™ Camino journey!

Join WILL, JESSICA, AVALON & LARGO on the 800 mile trek across Spain, from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port in France to the end of the Camino! Here’s the playlist specific to their Camino:

When their Camino is over, though, you don’t have to stop…look around on their Youtube site, as them been to a lot of different places and their videos are always entertaining.

WorldTowning Vlog – A Must See Traveling Family…

In our preparation for the Camino de Santiago, Michael and I have been devouring every Youtube video on the Camino we can find. I honestly don’t know how WorldTowning didn’t come up sooner in the searches, but I’m so glad they finally did! WorldTowning is a family who travel the world together, exploring its various landscapes and cultures with a joie de vivre the likes of which I don’t think I’ve ever witnessed. WorldTowning are Will, Jessica, Avalon, and Largo Sueiro…and they appear to be on the road to everywhere. They homeschool their children along the way…but the education they’re receiving by being fully immersed in all the various cultures of the world is far more valuable than any textbook could ever be.

We dropped in on WorldTowning for their Camino vlogs (They start at around Episode 67 of their vlog series) and then we stuck around to catch up on their past travels. And since they kept on going after the Camino de Santiago, we’re watching as they make their way through the rest of the world in their own unique and remarkable way.

That’s the thing that really blows me away. Not only did the Sueiros do the full Camino Frances pilgrimage route of the Camino, but it was only a stop along the way. AND they kept on going once they got to the ‘End of the World’ at Finisterre. They’re doing a mind-blowing world tour. And they’re not afraid of going off the beaten path and taking their viewers to unique locations that tourists don’t often see.

Watching the vlogs of their fascinating adventures, it’s easy to see that their two children (Avalon and Largo) thrive within the extraordinary atmosphere that world travel offers. They may not know just yet how lucky they are to be experiencing the different peoples of the world, but I’m sure it won’t take them to long to realize the ultimate gift their parents are bestowing upon them.

Will Sueiro does a remarkable job filming their adventures. I think I want to be a drone operator when I grow up! ALSO, nothing says dedication like carrying all that extra film gear on the 800km pilgrimage route in Spain. A regular viewer of their vlog nicknamed Will’s Camino de Santiago backpack ‘the kitchen sink’ because it appeared to be large enough to carry everything but. And I thought I carried a heavy load in 2014…until I saw the one Will lugged across Spain.

A long time ago, in another lifetime maybe, I used to attempt to hide my tears whenever something hit me hard in the feels. But I’ve come to accept that it’s okay to cry at commercials and movies and songs and books and…okay, yeah…just being in the presence of sheer beauty, even. I WANT to cry when my feelings explode so much that I can’t handle how big the joy or sorrow is. Jessica breaks down every now and then…and I think that’s wonderful. It makes her more real and authentic. It’s a gift to feel that deeply. She does tend to apologize for it occasionally. But I always say cry if you want to. To be honest, they’re seeing beautiful and remarkable things in their travels. Nothing makes me cry more than, say…the way the water laps at the side of the boat when you’re floating down the Ganges watching funeral pyres on the shore, or, say, the way the fields of poppies in Spain dance in the wind while you’re walking by making your way to Santiago. Tears are just an expression of gratitude or sorrow. We should never apologize for them. And we should never tease others for shedding them. I’m not ashamed to say I cried a few times while watching the WorldTowning vlog.

Oops. A blog post from me wouldn’t be the same without a digression. Enough about tears.

If you’re looking for a delightful travel vlog to watch, look no further than WorldTowning. Here’s a link to the WORLDTOWNING WEBSITE. Check it out to see what they have to offer YOU.
