This Mom Ditched the Daily Grind and Took Her 6-year-old Daughter to a Backpacking Adventure

Evie Farrel got tired of the usual cycle of keeping a job, paying the bills, and ensuring her daughter would have a wonderful childhood, and when she felt disconnected to her daughter, that was it: she quit her job and took the young woman on an adventure.

"I'd saved some money and I was like, 'right, I'm going to do a kitchen reno, or I'm going to get a swimming pool ... then I'm going to be equal to everyone else around me'.
"Luckily I realised that that absolutely wasn't the way and I spent that money on travel instead.
"The benefits to myself and to Emmie and our relationship and our growth have just been huge."

The adventure they took didn’t only improve the relationship of the two, but it also helped her daughter gain more confidence which allowed the little one to adapt to different environments very quickly. Farrell also empowered her daughter to be decisive and wise by allowing her to decide on some of their travel plans!
