Centrally located near the top of the South Island, Nelson made an excellent home-base for our three-month visit in New Zealand, and we completely luxuriated in the time we spent there. Because the country is quite large and packed full of awesomeness around every corner, we did occasionally venture to other places as well. Our first trip began with a short stay in Auckland on the North Island, to renew Aysia’s passport....

Bali / Personal / Spirituality

Meditation is simple mental focus exercise that can have powerful effects in your daily life. Personally, it’s increased my awareness of the thoughts and emotions I experience and improved my ability to choose how I respond to situations in life, rather than react unconsciously. When I’ve had a consistent practice of meditation, it’s also reduced stress and anxiety, increased my compassion for others, and improved...

I like to travel light, and typically only bring along carry-on luggage (in fact, we each only travel with one piece of carry-on luggage and a small backpack). Because of this, I’m especially careful about any new purchases. If I buy something new, it usually means I have to get rid of something else. But these are five unconventional items that I’ve found useful while...
