WE’RE BACK! (Sometimes life gets in the way)

“There seems to be something about Australia,” Emmi opined as she saw the most recent blog post.  She’s right. We started this project on our first adventure down-under, and while we’ve since logged a lot of miles around the globe, my blogging consistency hasn’t been quite so robust. That’s life, I think. We start down […]

Why DOES the Kangaroo Cross the Road?

Kangaroo, Kangaroo Island Australia

There’s a fine line between adventure and stupid – my mantra when traveling. And particularly so when traveling alone with the kids. Yet somehow, no matter how hard I try, I all too often find myself teetering there, wondering how the hell I managed to do it again. Such was the case driving back to […]

A Work in Progress

Mokulua Islands, Kailua Hawaii

Funny thing about travel. It’s changing how we see the world, and how we see ourselves.  When we set off to Australia almost two years ago, we didn’t really know what to expect. Truth be known, it was rather terrifying. Could we really carve out a new lifestyle, a new educational reality, a new normal […]
