This is the house that we were living in when we made the HUGE LIFE decision to START TRAVELING!!

We used to sit outside on our back porch in this house every single weekend…

Talking & Dreaming about a different way of living…

We felt burnt out from the grind of our full time jobs..

We wanted more time off to travel but we never had enough PTO + we never had any extra money to put towards travel & fun!!

We had enough to pay our bills each month…..

But that was about it!

At the time….

We didn’t have solution…

But we knew that we wanted to make a change….

We knew that we wanted to live differently…..

& we were open to all creative possibilities!!


In 2012…

We decided to quit our FT jobs, sell our house & everything that we owned to start traveling!!

It was literally the best decision that we’ve ever made!!!

We never expected to travel for over a decade…

But we fell in love with the lifestyle..

There is so much more MONEY, FREEDOM & FLEXIBILITY with traveling….

We couldn’t imagine ever going back to the full time grind.

Traveling completely blew up our lives in the best possible way..

It allowed us to reboot & reset & create a life on our own terms!!

It opened up a new way of living, traveling & working that we never knew was possible!!

Which is why we’re obsessed with helping new travelers get started 🙂

We made it through our first week of working PRN in Jacksonville;)

It’s been a big transition for us….

And After not scanning for over a year…

I was definitely feeling nervous 😬

But after the first couple of scans my hand knew exactly where to go and what to do …
It all came back & clicked in so fast & now I’m feelin good👌

Not quite sure how we will balance all the things just yet ….

We are trying to find our new flow between both of us working PRN & all the Travsessed things 🙂

But we will figure it out …
As we always do… one day at a time 🙂

So far we’re feeling really good about our decision to come home 🙂

First day… let’s go!!!

It feels surreal to be back working at the same place where:
I was an US student
My First job out of college
And Where Erran and I met 15 years ago!!

I haven’t worked as a Sonographer in over a year so I was feeling nervous…

So it was so nice to walk in and see familiar faces… in a place that still feels like home… even though I haven’t worked there in 13 years.

There is always so much info and things to learn on First days so my Brain is like

I did my first couple of scans and that felt really good 🙂

It’s crazy how my hand naturally knew exactly where to go and what to do …
Sonographer muscle memory is real ya’ll 😂

I’m totally exhausted and drained but feeling good & Erran feels the same way!

Trying to figure out this new dynamic as we try to balance both of us working PRN and running Travsessed …

Which feels like a lot in this moment but I know we will figure it out & find our flow … as we always do 🙂

Anyone else having a first day this week?

Travel Life to PRN
After 10 YEARS of non stop travel ….

We’re going home to do some PRN work at the hospitals where we worked before we started traveling 🙂

We have so many fun Travsessed Adventure trips & other things happening this year…

We need a bit of stability & a place to land in between all the things.

This is a HUGE transition for us…..
We’ve been nomadic & on the road for a decade ….

So being still & in one spot feels very unnatural to us in this moment …

And going back to our old jobs in our home town feels very surreal & kinda like a full circle moment….

But we’re gonna give it a go and see how it feels …

Like we always say you never know until you go….

If you want to do something different …
Take the leap and give it a try…

If you don’t like it…. Or if it doesn’t work out the way you thought that it would …

You can always pivot & change course 🙂

Nothing is permanent & there are always choices and endless opportunities to redirect & try again:)!!!

And The beautiful thing about travel is that it’s always there for you when you’re ready….

So We might even take some shorter travel contracts in between all the things …

As we do everything….

We will figure it out as we go 🙂

And keep moving in the direction of what feels good 🙂

We are documenting our entire experience on our IG story & reels @kimanderrang if you want to follow along 🙂

Travel life to PRN Vlog 3:)
Getting settled in:)

This past week has been a whirlwind and we are still getting settled into our new place here in Florida.

For the past 10 years… we’ve travelled very minimally…

Everything that we owned fit in our jeep..

So it always made moving quick & easy!

We are usually moved in, unpacked and organized in one day.

Because we got all of our things out of storage … we have a lot more “stuff” to unpack and put away…

So it’s definitely taking us a bit longer to get settled in.

Even though we have a bigger space we still plan to live Minimally & only have things that add value to our life and home:)

So far we are loving our new place… it’s for great vibes & we can’t wait to see it all come together 🙂
