More than a memoir, From the Rut to the Ledge shares inspiring stories and practical travel tips from a family who adventured around the world. Tired of living in their “comfortable rut,” Suzanne and Mitch Rutledge decided to quit their jobs in America and take their seven-year-old son with them on a journey around the world. For nine months, they traveled slowly and volunteered, home schooled their second grader, and experienced what everyday life was like in new and different places.
From the Rut to the Ledge shares their highs and lows, but also provides practical travel tips for anyone who wants to see the world on a budget. Follow their adventures from an elephant sanctuary in Thailand to the pyramids of Egypt. From tiny villages in Cambodia to the bustling streets of Barcelona, the Rutledges went out on a ledge to experience authentic life around the world and hope to encourage and inspire other families to do the same.
