Mountain Life – Sperryville, Virginia

Mountain Life – Sperryville, Virginia

We’re back in America. Jess came back six weeks sooner than me, and I spent that time in Europe, working on our book and visiting with family. After a year we find ourselves in a village, with a population of 342 (give or take) according to the 2010 census. A year ago we left the capital of the United States. In that time we went to 88 cities in 24 countries, circling the world twice. So…

Nesting in Sperryville, Virginia

Nesting in Sperryville, Virginia

The distance around Earth is 24,901 miles (40,075 km). Between June 1, 2014 and June 10, 2015, we traveled 61,657 miles (99.227 km) – we circled the earth once moving east, then again moving west, and covered enough ground to nearly circle the earth one more time. And now….we’ve stopped.     Life after travel is not the same. You no longer look at anything as if that’s simply the way they are, because you’ve seen that they…

Bohemian Paris

Bohemian Paris

When you arrive at a train station in Paris, either coming from the airport or by rail from a nearby city, province, or country, you can feel the spirit of the city. Paris is a place of revolutions, artists, and existential philosophers, and for a period, the favorite city and second home of the great American writers. Paris is a bohemian city, so different than the rest of France that people joke about the Parisian…

Bali – Back Roads, Rice Fields, and Volcanoes

Bali – Back Roads, Rice Fields, and Volcanoes

If you’re ever pulled over on a motorbike or in a car on the island of Bali, either make sure you have an international license, or tell them you left all your documents in your room. There are roadblocks all around the island, often looking more for foreigners to site for violations, though content to catch any infraction of the law. There are two ways to pay – either go to court, or pay the…

Bohemian Photo Journal | Budapest

Bohemian Photo Journal | Budapest

Our second installment of the Budapest photo journal… Budapest is somewhat cold right now, as is much of the world for this time of year – April, 2015. It hasn’t stopped us from exploring, shielding ourselves from blistering winds, the occasional rain, and the cloudy backdrop and blanket of a grey sky. The weather doesn’t detract from the charm of the city, and gives us more excuses to stop at cafes for an espresso or beer, and…

Sarajevo – Scars of War

Sarajevo – Scars of War

Our bus journey from Niš, Serbia, to Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina, was thirteen hours of sheer beauty. We wound through fields and farms, curving around rolling hills that extended across winding rivers toward mountains that disappeared against the backdrop of a clear blue summer sky. As we zoomed through the tunnels cut into the mountainside, the emerald waters of the river glowed bright green below. Our path widened and narrowed along the cliffs with an endless view of tree groves….

Cheapest Places in the World to Drink a Beer

Let’s face it, everybody enjoys a nice cold beer while on vacation. Sometimes the price is oh, so, sweet, but other times, certain places will leave you feeling guilty for spending your hard earn cash on an over priced beer.

What’s in my Backpack & How to Pack Better, Video Included

Thinking about going on a vacation or traveling to foreign lands? Here’s some advice I learned the hard way… LESS IS MORE!

The Cost of Living Around the World

The Cost of Living Around the World

I often get asked, ‘How can you afford to travel around the world so much’ … My response has changed over the years, but essentially it’s the fact that the cost of living outside of America is often a cheaper option, even though America isn’t even in the top 15 most expensive countries to live in anymore. We spend less money traveling around the world every month than on one months rent in the States. Granted,…
