The Truth about the Squatty Potty

The Truth about the Squatty Potty

If you’ve traveled for any extended length of time you’ve most certainly come across many Westerner’s ultimate bathroom nightmare: The Squatty Potty When traveling you make all sorts of fun bathroom discoveries—toilets without TP, toilet stalls without doors, toilets that don’t have seats, toilets that don’t flush, manual flushing toilets, etc. Most of these don’t hold a grain of salt compared to the squat experience.

5 Ways for Kids to Travel at Home

5 Ways for Kids to Travel at Home

We’re settling well into a new groove in Southern Oregon. We’ve spent so many years moving around, this is a very new experience for us. We’re planting roots, doing a lot of yard work, and the kids are involved in countless activities around the community such as lessons in piano, sewing, art, and gymnastics! As much we love the new groove, however, we do not want our kids’ love of traveling and new experiences to dwindle. We have a...

Cleaning on the Go

Cleaning on the Go

Well, we’ve had one heck of a busy Fall!  Life keeps on changing at a very rapid pace, despite slowing down in our recent travels (don’t worry—we haven’t blogged about even half of our journeys, so there’s much to come!).

The absolute traveling essentials

The absolute traveling essentials

We’re not light packers. We’re not heavy packers, either. Basically, all of our travel goods can fit in our 5 backpacks (and 3 daypacks).

Why not to buy a foreign computer

Why not to buy a foreign computer

Merida is a lovely town. Really, it is. Problem is, we didn’t really get to enjoy it. You see, just a few days into our trip, we found ourselves with a MAJOR crisis. Both my computer, and Jared’s computer, were DEAD. “Great! More time to vacation! Good riddance!”, you say?  I wish!!  The thing is, we fund our travels by running our business remotely, and it means that we absolutely, positively, have to be...
