Fear Cure For The Journey

By |March 26th, 2017|

The path ahead forks out in too many directions.  How can I possibly choose just one?

Not Your Grandma’s Toad-In-The-Hole

By |February 8th, 2017|

The first meal I ever learned to cook was toad-in-the-hole. I remember it like it was yesterday. Grandma Sue stood at the countertop with her food-stained white and pink lace apron looking down at me through wide spectacles.

3-Day Grand Island Adventure!

By |October 6th, 2016|

{Originally written Saturday October 1st, 2016...} I woke up this morning to the distant thuds of waves crashing up against tall cliff walls. Occasional pit pats on the roof of the tent let me know it was an overcast day with on and off showers. To my left, rustling feet twitch to let me know [...]

New Challenges And Realizations

If you've been following our adventures since last fall, you might be asking yourself why we returned early from our 1-year planned trip and have not talked about heading back abroad yet? This is an excellent two-part question. Being in the fortunate position to live virtually anywhere we want for virtually any period of time, [...]

Back In The U.S.A.!

By |June 14th, 2016|

After roughly 5 months abroad we decided to continue our wanderlust in the States, in part to spend time with family and friends back home (attending family reunions and weddings as well), but also to rest and recharge. One of the coolest things about this lifestyle is you have the ability to pick up and go [...]

“The World Is Small”

By |May 2nd, 2016|

Florence's Arno At Sunset Every once in a while (maybe a little more often on this trip) I hear a phrase that perfectly sums up our experience. Yesterday, Max and I were deep in conversation about the limitless potential for innovation and connection nowadays. We were on a bridge overlooking the river, waiting for [...]
