First Timers in France, Part One France / Travel

We’ve been looking forward to visiting France for quite a while, but we’ve also been a bit nervous, mostly because of our lack of knowledge with the language, and we also hoped the people would be friendly. As it turns out, we’ve never felt so welcomed in a new country before! We find itinerary planning to be very challenging at times, especially in a place...

San Sebastian, Spain Barcelona / Spain / Travel

Continuing our journey through Spain, we arrived in Valencia, where we were met with red wine, cured ham, and cheese, courtesy of Lorenzo, the owner of the apartment we were renting. Shortly after that, the girls from the Clark family showed up to share the apartment with us, and we all went out to dinner that night for tapas with our friends, Darcy and Katie,...

My Journey with Ayahuasca Personal / Spain / Spirituality / Travel

Over my birthday this year, while the family was in Ronda, Spain, I took a train to Madrid for a 3-day retreat where an Amazonian plant mixture called ayahuasca was used to facilitate greater self-awareness. I first heard of ayahuasca in 2012, shortly after arriving in Bali for the first time, and have been intrigued by the idea ever since. Over the years, I’ve met dozens of people...

Adventures in Andalucía Andalucia / Spain / Travel

We were so impressed by our visit to Barcelona last year, that within seven months we found ourselves back in Spain once again, this time beginning in the southern part. Brandon gave Emily some fun new trip planning and navigating responsibilities as well. Since we planned to stay a night in Bangkok to break up the journey, he put Emily in charge of working out the logistics...

Menjangan Island, Bali Bali / Indonesia / Travel

Just off the Northwest coast of Bali, Indonesia lies Menjangan island. Surrounded by clear water, colorful coral, and incredible numbers of fish, it’s a spot we’ve been wanting to visit for some time. So we invited our friends, Brian and Scottie and their 5 year old son, and spent a few days there together. Well, actually the island is uninhabited, except for some monks. But there are several lovely hotels on...

My Solo Trip and Silent Retreat Bali / Indonesia / Personal / Spirituality / Travel

I don’t know about you, but there are a lot of thoughts swimming around in my head, and sometimes I get really tired of the inner noise. It’s easy for me to get caught up in preparing for the future, reliving the past, or the constant chatter of labeling and critiquing everything in my present experience. Sometimes, I wish the voice in my head would just shut up...

Creating Home in Bali Bali / Education / Family / Personal

We’re enjoying Bali more now than ever. Last year, we were quite ready to leave when I wrote about what we love about Ubud and what we feel is lacking here. But lately, many of those lacks have been filled. From finishing a year-long remodel project, to finding several wonderful classes and friends for our girls, to connecting even more with open and welcoming people – at this point, we’re...

Savoring Singapore Education / Singapore / Travel

After so much traveling before we came back to Bali this last time, we decided we wanted to keep our visa run as short, sweet, and simple as possible, while also acquiring a social visa for Bali. This way we are able to stay put for a while and also continue the finishing touches and organization of settling into our new home. So, off to Singapore we...

Discovering Dubai Dubai / Travel

We were excited to go to Dubai when we booked our plane tickets, but then we became quite nervous after reading things like this online. Not your typical laid back, go with the flow, type of rules there. And, since we tend to feel a bit rebellious with things like that, we hoped we wouldn’t be overly triggered and/or noncompliant. However, we didn’t encounter any...
