Wednesday Write-Up: 201 Posts!

I know it may seem silly to celebrate 201 posts, but since I didn’t realize the milestone of writing about our adventures 200 times when I was publishing my post on Monday I thought I would just celebrate it as it is. In those 200 posts, we wrote about our beginnings, our travels, and how different and wonderful it was to… Read more →

Wednesday Write-Up: From Stem to Stern-My Medical Check

I have so appreciated all the love, support, and “get-wells” I have received in response to my recent posts about my medical woes. You all have made me feel so much better in every way possible!  Just knowing there are so many people who care is amazing! You are all the best! I have been talking about getting a medical check… Read more →

Wednesday Write-Up: Unending Exhaustion

As I lay dying resting during my recent illness, I thought about this blog much of the time… Well, that and how I desperately wanted to feel better of course. Luckily I am feeling almost all better. I am also lucky that my wonderful partner-in-crime helped and filled in for me on Monday so no posts were skipped despite my body telling me… Read more →

Wednesday Write-Up: Wrapping Up

We are wrapping up our time here in London, England. We leave tomorrow to finally return to the warmer, cheaper, tropical-er (yes I know that’s not a real word) land of Phuket, Thailand. What a time these last two months have been! I am still planning on writing more about our time in sunny England… no seriously… it has been sunny and WARM… Read more →

And Then Sometimes You Embarrass Yourself Horribly

During the past fifteen months of traveling around the world, we have been on over thirty airplanes. We have had flights delayed (almost always American Airlines),  flights cancelled (always American Airlines), and almost missed our flights. Most often the almost missed flights have been due to traffic on the way to the airport, or looking at the departure times incorrectly, but last… Read more →

Wednesday Write-Up: Oh, But California

As I was driving today through the near by town of Petaluma, California the song California by Joni Mitchell came on Spotify.  I turned it up as far as my iPhone speaker would let me and reminisced about what I have done and who I have seen far during this trip back to our “home” in Northern California. We have been… Read more →

Wednesday Write-Up: Change of Plans

We have had a gigantic change of plans today. Our trip to visit family and friends here in Northern California was set to end with our return flight to Tokyo in a week and a half. I was mentally and emotionally preparing for the good-byes, I was ready, but it looks like we will be here an extra week here in California.… Read more →

Wednesday Write-Up: A Day in Tokyo

We spent two days in Tokyo, Japan. Well, really one day in Tokyo and one day at Tokyo Disneyland (more about that in my Friday post this week). I had no idea what I really wanted to see with our free day, I think maybe I was overwhelmed at the multitude of things to see and do. After talking to… Read more →

Travel days come and travel days go…

Hey Everyone! I am writing this excuse for my wife. She really wanted to power through our long travel days and write a blog post, but I could see in her jet lagged eyes that she deserved a break. So, here I am, once again. Figuring I would quickly fill you in on our happenings… Tokyo, Japan: What a trip.… Read more →

Wednesday Write-up: A Wet Songkran

This past Sunday was the beginning of Songkran, the Thai New Year, here in Thailand. Songkran is a country-wide water fight held every year from April 13th-15th. Depending on where you live (or are visiting) in Thailand, the celebrating can last one day to 6 days. In Phuket we celebrate it one day, the first day of Songkran on the 13th,… Read more →
