Do I offend you?

Do I offend you?

A good friend (and excellent blogger) of mine recently recommended that I try to share more impressions about our travels on our blog. I agree that he’s right…I don’t share my personal opinion very often on my blog…and I approach that challenge with some trepidation. Why?  Isn’t that the purpose of a blog, to share what you stand for, and why? I step forward into this challenge with fear, because I think people are too easily...

Are we running to or from?

Are we running to or from?

Some traveling friends of ours recently asked why we started traveling. There are several common reasons many people begin traveling—maybe they began traveling as a necessity (life threw them a financial curveball), perhaps they’re seemingly running from something, seeking a different life, or they felt the life of a gypsy calling them, begging them to see the world. The first time we wandered South of the Border to Mexico, we were...

The Freedom to Choose

The Freedom to Choose

On this July 4th, as an American expat living abroad, I recognize that I have a great freedom. Not all have this freedom, and therefore it only seems suitable to acknowledge it and appreciate it.

For example, as an American, I am grateful that I have a US passport that allows me the freedom to travel the...

The story begins 2 years after we got married. We were expecting our first child, and invested all of our savings into a new...

Not Everyone Can Travel

Not Everyone Can Travel

It’s true, not everyone can travel. “What?!” you say, “I thought that’s the whole point?  Blogging to show the world that anyone and any family can manage a life of excitement and travel adventures?” No, the truth is that the majority of people in the world will never have the opportunity to travel beyond their neighboring city or village, not to mention their neighboring state or country.  There are...

How do you travel with children?

How do you travel with children?

It is a question I get a lot. We haven’t spent much time flying or doing “quick” travel around the world. However, we have logged a LOT of miles in our van with children in tow. I can’t tell you how many parents tell us they can’t go on a 4 hour road trip with their children, not to mention one of our month-long road treks where we hit up 4,000 miles.  My simple answer is usually that “the kids do pretty...
