Ben and Kelly Lutz are both from Michigan, but they've lived in California for the last ten years while they worked in finance. And it looks like they've had enough of all of it. According to, they've quit their jobs and sold their house in California. Now,  they'll be traveling around the world for the next year, with their young daughter Liesel. After that, they plan to come home and raise Liesel in Michigan.

The Lutzs have been in Michigan for the last couple of weeks, seeing family and hanging out at the beach on Lake Michigan. On August 13th, they'll fly out of Detroit and into Paris. They have the first couple of months planned out, then - it's up to the travel gods, because they have no planned itinerary. Next year, it'll be back to Michigan to settle down.

One thing's for sure - Liesel's gonna slay it in pre-school geography.

You'll be able to follow the family on their Facebook and Instagram feeds.
