Slow travelling through North America and spending quality time with his wife and daughter.
Mike Campbell is a speaker, podcast host and writer behind liveimmediately.com. He encourages parents and organisations to live more with less, and to spend as much time as possible doing things they enjoy with people they love.
During 2016 Mike, his wife and then 4 year old daughter went on a family adventure where they attempted to house and pet sit their way through North America.
They spent winter in the north woods of Wisconsin, in a log cabin in the middle of a national forest, in a town called Clam Lake that has a population of 37 people. When they arrived there daughter was the youngest person in the town and Mike was the second youngest.
They then had spring in the Colorado Rocky Mountains of Breckenridge, summer in Rhode Island, and Autumn in Upstate New York.
