We are Adam & Emily Harteau and we became parents to Colette Nova, aka “the ambassador of love and joy”, in January 2011. We have travelled through places like Southern Africa, Southeast Asia, Polynesia, New Zealand, Japan and even circumnavigated North America in our VW Westfalia driving 14,000 miles in 3 months.
Growing up off the grid, first in a school bus traveling the west coast, later in a cabin built by his parents in the woods, Adam is fluent in adventure. He is an artist and finds inspiration in nature and wanderlust. As his companion in many a journey over the past 10 years, Emily is a well-versed co-pilot, fashion designer and epic camp chef. Our Open Road will serve as a modern family portrait, as we shed our robes of comfort to reexamine the American Dream, we hope to inspire others to create, eat well, spend quality time together, and adventure into their own great backyards.
Our Open Road is an experiment in living simply while working to create great things.
