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...

Blissful in Barcelona Barcelona / Spain / Travel

From the very first day we arrived in Barcelona, life for our family suddenly felt exquisitely harmonious and balanced, and remained so for the entire two month duration of our stay. We all felt quite blissed out in fact! That’s the kind of magical effect Barcelona seemed to have on us, and it continues to infuse our memories of the place with a very special...

English Hospitality Sussex / Travel / United Kingdom

Have you ever been welcomed into a friend’s home with such kindness and generosity that your heart practically bleeds with gratitude? That’s how we feel after spending 12 days at the Clark family’s house near Brighton, England. We first met the Clarks in Bali last year. Their kids are similar ages to ours and we hit it off so well that we spent several days together during their two...

Lazy in London Family / London / Travel / United Kingdom

We were so grateful to have booked an apartment for 10 days in London because in the past two months, we hadn’t stayed in any place for longer than a week, and in the past two weeks, we hadn’t stayed anywhere longer than two nights! So, we were quite worn out and ready to stay “home” and recover for a while. This worked out rather well because London is an extremely expensive city, and we helped keep costs down by resting for several...

Land of the Leprechauns Ireland / Travel

We’d dreamed of visiting Ireland for years, with its green rolling hills and charming old castles. We booked a one way ticket in case we decided to stay a while, but ten days ended up being plenty for us, mostly because of the weather, which was colder and cloudier than we preferred. There was a light drizzle of rain almost daily, and we kept our jackets on most of the time. Our...

Of Families and Mountains Family / Idaho / Travel / United States / Wyoming

From my beautiful sister’s wedding in a campground near Pocatello, Idaho, to beautiful drives through Yellowstone National Park and the Teton mountains near Jackson, Wyoming, and ending with a family reunion at Bear Lake, we had a busy but enjoyable time during our last week in the USA this trip. It started with a flight from Seattle. We’d driven down from Vancouver the night before, and had accidentally...

Vancouver, British Columbia Canada / Travel / Vancouver

As we drove into Vancouver, Canada, our first impressions were that it was HUGE!!! High-rise apartment and office buildings flooded the skyline, traffic was jam-packed, and so many people were walking around that it felt like we were in a big Asian city again. We’d expect to see that many people outside if there were a festival or concert ending, but it was just a regular weekday afternoon. We...
