After Are Traasdahl sold his tech-marketing company in 2016, he and his wife, Siri Willoch Traasdahl, were quick to discover what the family could do with the extra time and resources. “The world,” she says. “We wanted to see it all.” Five months later, Siri, Are, and their two kids, Felix and Iris, then 7 and 3, were off on a 14-month, around-the-globe odyssey, visiting dozens of countries in high style. Virtuoso travel advisor Brooke Lavery helped them plot the dots on the most epic of one-way journeys.

The destinations? Are you ready? Paris, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Turkey, Israel, Estonia, Russia ... should I keep going?
