Do you ever feel lost? Stuck in a routine? Feel like your doing so much, but still not getting the results you desire?

You find yourself doing the same thing over and over but still not getting better results? Well, that was me.

April 13, 2017, I made a decision to take charge of my life. To do things differently and I couldn’t be more happier. I went from a routined life of living paycheck to overdraft fees, little to no savings and barely seeing the inside of a plane. To now traveling MORE, saving MORE, earning MORE income and experiencing life how I choose. Currently on a part time basis.

All I really wanted was to design my ideal lifestyle…and I found out exactly how I could make that a reality.

Welcome to Just Travel And Explore

I know the name suggest only travel, but that’s far from it. I’m here to inspire you to take charge of your life. To design it how you choose. To show you have to earn income from the comfort of your home. To travel and experience the world on your terms, while saving and earning. I am here to inspire you to design your ideal life and transform it into what you see fit.

But who am I?

I’m Kevine (Kev-veen), I am currently a full-time educator, a wife, a mom of three amazing blessings. I am the main writer behind the blog, Just Travel and Explore with pop up collaborations from my hubby, Vincent.

I’m a graduate from the University of Central Florida (Go Knight!) with my bachelor of science in Early Childhood Education and Development with minors in Sociology and Psychology and Photo-Journalism.

I know that was a mouth full, right?!

How do those spectrums fit each other, no clue. All I knew was; I wanted to teach, I wanted to learn about how children learn and develop, and I knew I wanted to travel and document it. So I studied them all, lol.

I like to think of myself as a learning junky and anything that sparks my interest, I deepened my knowledge in it. I later went back to school and got my Masters in Educational Leadership and Curriculum Development. I like to call myself the Educator who loves to travel. So if you ever want to chat about traveling, entrepreneurship, saving and finance, travel infused instruction for the classroom, or anything email me at info@JustTravelAndExplore.com

Just Travel and Explore

Havana, Cuba

Just Travel And Explore was born with the sole purpose to share how an educator got saved by travel. To share how educators can also travel the world, while on a teacher’s budget and give their kids the gift of exploration. Just Travel And Explore evolved into sharing travel experiences, stories, and tips.

Just Travel [And] Explore, share, and creates amazing travel experiences and provide opportunities to just travel and explore without regrets or hesitation. To visit our sister site for our latest trips click here. Among other things, as you join this journey, you’ll learn how I travel on a teacher’s budget. How I make money from building a business on a part-time basis and teach others how to do the same. How I make travel a part of my daily classroom instruction while in the classroom, and how I expose my own children and students to the world while enriching them, and never breaking the bank. As you journey along, I pray and hope that you’ll find something that will impact, empower, and inspire.

Dominic is one of the most coolest, easy-going kid I’ve ever met, and I’m not just saying that ’cause he’s my cool kid. He literally is. He loves having fun, loves to relax and definitely enjoys exploring new places. I love that this kid will take on any adventure even while scared. On one of many trips, he dared to conquer rock climbing and succeeded even while he was scared. I’m not sure where he gets his bravery, but I admire it!

My Iyanna, Banana is the more reserved one of the three. She’s not all for the thrill and the adventure, she’s more about learning and appreciating the location and the culture.

The teacher in me provides a full out lesson prior to visiting every location. I do this because I believe it’s important to infuse education into their travel and it gives them a chance to see the location, prior to actually visiting. It also is a great way to build their anticipation, and when they get the chance to visit, they can now create meaningful connections to what they’ve learned prior. I find that my Iyanna enjoys the prior learning that takes place prior to our family trips, and I absolutely love her “ah-ha” moments, as she connects her prior knowledge during our family trips.


My Malanna, Lanna is the last of the three, but her personality is definitely not the least. She’s the life of the party and keeps us on our feet. She’s all for the adventure, and there better be great food and music for her to get down–or she’ll create her own! Traveling has certainly broadened her vocabulary and increased her appreciation for taking on every challenge each day has to offer.

Mr. McMillan

Ok, so it’s a side picture, only because he hates taking pictures so this is all I got right now. 😉

Vincent and I met in HS, and we’ve been married for over 10yrs. He’s always been super open to all of our adventures with only a few requirements; there must be great food, good liquor, and a beach if it’s a tropical spot. He definitely keeps me grounded and I enjoy creating memories together with our family.
