Highlights of 2015 Personal / Travel

Another incredible year has passed!

Times Square Family / New York / Travel / United States

If I had to describe Manhattan in one word, it would be “energetic”. This intense place is buzzing with activity and excitement. Mammoth skyscrapers, throngs of diverse individuals, flashy advertisements, and the noise and smells of a big city. During our ten day trip there, we found ourselves feeling awed and engaged, but also exhausted and overwhelmed. It was a bit surreal to visit landmarks we’d heard and seen in countless movies, stories, and music...

Playing House in Victoria Canada / Family / Travel / Victoria

Ah, Victoria. You’re kind of our favorite. We spent July through September in this magical, perfect-sized, quaint, and oh-so-friendly place. It feels just like a warm hug with really delightful and cozy people. There’s seemingly always someone available to give you a smile, a helping hand, or a congenial chat. I’m beginning to think that many of the residents are actually angels incognito. I would go out...

We love many things about Ubud, Bali, Indonesia. We love the inspiring scenery and near-perfect weather, healthy and affordable food of almost any cuisine, an earth-conscious community of entrepreneurs and activists, affordable household help, amazing massages for $6-15/hour, and the genuine smiles of laid-back locals. It’s a relaxed and thoughtful way of life that we’ve come to appreciate.

Positano and Amalfi coast Italy

I’ve mostly lost interest in writing travelogue posts. There are probably thousands of other travel blogs out there with all the details about the best places to visit in Italy. One of the main reasons I started this blog was as an online journal to document our family’s travels, what we’ve learned, and the things we want to remember. And while we’ve seen some amazing...

Planning for the Moment Music / Personal / Productivity / Travel

Do you ever find yourself stuck between the balance of enjoying whatever it is you’re doing in the moment, and being lost in hopes or fears about the future? This game seems to play out constantly in my own mind. When I’m not enjoying the moment, the wonders of life tend to pass me by unappreciated. But if I live without structure and planning, little gets...

Gadgets for Geeks in a Traveling Family Personal / Travel

I admit it. I’m a gadget geek. As much as I tout the fact that we travel with only carry-on luggage and that everything I personally own can fit in a small backpack, I’m a sucker for small, sleek, stylish, and efficient technology, electronic or not, and a good portion of what’s in my backpack is gadgets. Here is a list of some of the...
