ABOUT US

Who are the Roaming Parkers?

The Roaming Parkers are a travelling, scouting, blogging, photographing, food-loving family who promote all things outdoor and adventure!  We want to live a life of travel, outdoor adventure, conservation, and healthy food, and we would love to have you along with us in that lifestyle.

We think there are a LOT of people who feel disconnected from the real, natural world and bogged down in the virtual, online, rat race.  For these people, the ideas of outdoor adventure travel and nature conservation resonates greatly.

We would love to help you get unstuck from the rat race and to reconnect with a more real, more natural, more sustainable, and more adventurous lifestyle.

Or, if you are already way ahead of us on that journey we want you to help us!

Meet the Roaming Parkers!
