After reading about Bhutan, Andrea becomes sold on the idea of moving there. She just has to get her husband, Bob and their two small children on board. When she finds a teaching program that will give her a job and help find her family a home, they make the long journey together. But in Bhutan basic living is the norm and with her husband now taking the role as Mr. Mom, this family must choose a home that helps them to experience Bhutanese life off the grid, while still making it comfortable for their young sons.
Aaron and Tine met in Australia but chose to start a family in Tine's native Copenhagen. While life in Denmark is pleasant, limited work opportunities for expat Aaron have made a lucrative job offer back in Australia too good to pass up. But Australia won't be easy. The young family will have to live way off the grid in Coober Pedy, a remote mining town in the middle of the Australian Outback and 1,000 miles away from any sign of civilization. To make matters worse, daytime temperatures can reach 116 degrees, driving much of the population underground where they live in cave-like homes called dugouts.
