The last few months have been pretty chill. Todays post will bring you pretty much up to the new year. Thanks again for your patience with my not so regular updates! After coming down south from Nova Scotia Canada, we spent some time on the east coast hunting for awesome fall color and continuing our…

I cannot say how much we LOVED Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland. I think what appeals so much to us, is that all these areas have so much coast as there are fingers and bays everywhere! And there is a marked lack of feeling touristy. Actually feels like you are visiting a real…

From Ottawa to Quebec City (early august) I’ve been struggling with this post. I don’t want to just do a dry list of our accomplishments for the last month of so, but also not sure how to sum up our experiences to be both interesting and also with some useful information for other travelers. I…

We left Ted and Joyce to their work and have now ‘begun’ our Canadian maritime trip. With the first stop still in the US – Mackinac Island, Michigan. (This blog post takes place the last week of July). Seeing as there are no cars on Mackinac island, we definitely needed a campsite someplace else. We…

Posted from Longueuil, Quebec, Canada. Friends and Family! The next segment of our travels is all about our family and friends. We are zig zagging across the US in order to visit those that are dear to us. We feel strongly that those connections are worth a few hundred miles (or more) of a detour.…

Posted from Knoxville, Tennessee, United States. Well, we may be back in the old USA, but we are still traveling! This post takes us from California, down central Nevada, into Arizona and New Mexico. But before I do a brief recap of those stops – I wanted to point out that I will be working…

Now since the fun and excitement is over, we are mapping out what the next year will be for us. But before we put forth those plans, I thought I would share some insights I have gained over the last two long international trips. 1- Roller bag vs backpack – our vote is for the…

What?!!! You are taking a ‘cruise’ on a ugly old container ship?!?!  How the heck did you hear about that? Any WHY would you do that? As you might have figured out already, we like to travel. And since we are in no hurry to get to any one destination, we have chosen recently to…

Vietnam – last stop of this six month adventure – but definitely not the least! Ho Chi Min We visited four cities (no time for national parks this round, but we’ve heard great things, so next trip…). Ho Chi Min started the visit – mainly because we needed a major city to fly into for…

Laos – an unintended visit, sort of… Before even starting this big trip, we knew we wanted to take a river ‘cruise’ (we like being on the water if you hadn’t figured out). Danny found one on the Mekong from the north of Thailand and ending in Laos. The cruise was just what we were…
