Clare Fisher (31), who is a business-owner, and husband Ian (28), a media practitioner, have quit their jobs and sold all their worldly possessions to travel the world with their two children, aged five and three.

As part of their plans to raise funds for the round-the-world family trip, the Travel The World Family, as they have dubbed themselves, intend on selling their cars and furniture and shacking up with relatives in the lead-up to their departure.

The first leg of their journey – to commence after Christmas – will see them visit Australia, Cambodia, Fiji, Indonesia, Majorca, New Zealand, the Philippines, Sri Lanka and Vietnam. The second part will include visits to Canada and the USA, reports Business Insider.
