Halfway on the Walk Across America

Halfway on the Walk Across America

Dmitry has made it half way across the country. We’re following him on his Walk Across America. When we wrote last, he was just getting onto the Appalachian Trail, still within 350 miles of his walk. When he left Sperryville initially, I told him that he should write more, take more pictures, and share more. The drain on battery and lack of time – he’s on the road generally walking from sundown to sunrise and averaging…

Road Trip USA – Honky Tonk and Truck Stops

Road Trip USA – Honky Tonk and Truck Stops

The bohemian trail is a slow road across America – one that I appreciate, knowing the beauty of the country that offers such a depth of Americana and artistry if you’re willing to slow down and give it a chance. I live in such a place – the places that every country has, but often few outsiders see. But we had a long way ahead of us, and knew we would see a lot of country…

Road Trip Across America – Mile 1

Road Trip Across America – Mile 1

We packed light. The Honda Accord had just gone through a $1400 investment – most of the parts on it dated back to the original, and after 16 years, belts, tubes, and tires needed to be replaced. The car had exactly 140,000 miles on it (we timed when we took the reading because the number was a good one to start on), which was pretty low for a 2000. It was 8 am on August 1st,…

After our fourth trek around the world, we’re still chronicling our adventures (and misadventures) on this site. Our aim…

Bohemian Travel Destinations

Bohemian Travel Destinations

With last years travels to Japan and Korea under our belts, we settled back into our comfortably posh lives back in Washington, DC. Of course we know our travel itch is only placated for small amounts of time, and eventually we wanted to leave again, this time for longer, so we could travel farther. Researching destinations, possibilities, and opportunities became an obsession. With loose plans conceived, we wrapped up all projects, moved everything we own…

Our Favorite Spots

Our top destinations always seem to be changing as we discover more of the world around us, but these spots will always rank among the top of our list, in no particular order: (click images to enlarge pictures) 1. Ghent, Belgium Visiting Ghent was similar to walking through a painting. You were surrounded by a sophisticated culture with classic architecture.  Old cobblestoned streets surround castles, happy locals, and great public transportation. This Flanders region of Belgium…

Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is simple. It’s a large Earth, but a small World. We all seek happiness. We are all unique. And the only way to understand the human experience is to explore the many cultures in our world today. As we travel more, we are constantly confronted by the way of life “back home.” The things we consider normal, the things we take for granted, and the magnitude of things we simply do not know….
