9. Sarah De Santi
Sarah De Santi and her family are well-known on social media as The 5 World Explorers. They are a world-traveling family, including her husband Massimiliano, Sarah herself, and their kids Cosimo, Emma and Luca. They are content creators and influencers, who sold all their belongings in June 2018, and decided to live the nomad life, traveling to multiple destinations worldwide. Their children are truly global citizens, and the family offers travel coaching to assist everyone who needs help getting organized for traveling or simply requires the courage to get out there.
Originally from Italy, they decided to sell everything in 2010 to relocate to the United States. Then after living in the states for eight years, they felt it was time to make another significant move. They chose to sell everything to travel the world with their three children, which many people long to do but are afraid to undertake. Rather than just watching it on television or reading about it in books, Sarah and Massimiliano believed that if their children were to understand anything about the world, they needed to experience it.
For the first year, they documented their journey with images on social media and blog articles on their website, the5worldexplorers.com. However, in recent months, they have felt compelled to speak more publicly about the locations they have visited through their Youtube channel The 5 World Explorers. To date, the family has visited 45 countries and posts daily updates on social media regarding their whereabouts. Their objective is to inspire others to travel and to show them through real-life examples that with a bit of courage and motivation, anyone can live the life they want – which is why they travel with their children, regardless of the issues that may arise.
In addition, the family’s blog offers further information about their travels, and Sarah, a best selling published author and professional photographer, shares images whenever feasible. Massimiliano is a physical therapist and acupuncturist who provides self-help coaching to show people the art of healing themselves. The family’s motto says, “Explore the world with who you love,” which is precisely what they preach through their fantastic travel vlog.
10. Libby & Alex Thoms
Travelers and bloggers Libby and Alex Thoms have manifested their love for travel through their content on Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook page, @travelinthoms. As one of the top ten travel influencers of 2023, their RV lifestyle began after October 2020, when Alex underwent multiple strokes two weeks after the couple announced their engagement. Having suffered multiple strokes and being diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes all by the age of 25, they flipped a switch, and the couple realized that there is a different way of living than the traditional 9-5 lifestyle at home.
Marrying a year later, in August 2021, the couple decided to give the RV life a shot as they took their camper on their six-week honeymoon out west. As remote employees, this was the best opportunity to go all in on the full-time RV life. At the end of their honeymoon, the couple upgraded their fifth wheel and prepared for full-time travel. In March 2022, Alex and Libby began to travel the country and work remotely while renting out their home base in Maryland as a short-term rental on Airbnb.
Through Instagram, Facebook and TikTok, the couple has formed quite the following and earned their first sponsorship with RV Snappad. The success that came with this partnership paved the way for @travelinthoms, and soon enough, they formed their LLC in April 2022. “Since April 2022, we’ve gotten to work with the following companies: Sun Outdoors, Harvest Hosts, Buzz Bicycles, Dakota Lithium, B&W Trailer Hitches, Book Outdoors, Brooklyn Bedding, Tecovas, among others.” shares the couple. Moreover, Libby and Alex were featured in the June/July 2021 Issues of ROVA Magazine due to their fantastic RV lifestyle.
Life’s twists and turns push one to take that leap of faith. Libby and Alex did the same and are now moving onward as an adventure-loving couple, ready to take on more experiences and grow their business even bigger as they traverse the nation.
