My Motorhome Adventure Across America – Bertha and Me

I guess you can say that I’ve always wanted to live in a motorhome – only I didn’t realize it until I actually drove one around the Unites States one and a half times! So how and why does one drive around the enormous but beautiful country in such an odd loop you ask? It’s … Continued

Afghanistan 2005…Exposed

Rocking atop burlap sacks in the open-backed truck, I watched as Peshawar faded into the morning’s mirage. Knowing I’d never return in this lifetime, I felt history being made beneath my feet as upturned dust exposed ancient stories.  With a mandatory armed-escort riding in the front, I knew I better play by the rules. At … Continued

Camping on a Deserted Island, Belize

Shortly after arriving in Belize City I discovered that the town held few charms.  Very few, to be honest.  Despite its quaint clapboard houses and tropically colonial British architecture, this city on the shores of the Caribbean was replete with unemployed young men who had little to do in life except prey on the unwary … Continued

OMG: Falling through Delta’s cracks

I’m in the travel business, right? I’m also a bright cookie (I know this because my mother’s been telling me that my whole life).  So, really, WTF happened that I found myself on the phone with Delta, ten days before leaving for Bali, saying: “What do you mean we have a ten-hour layover in Tokyo? … Continued

The Hotel Contintental, Saigon

Back in 2005 at the end of our first trip to Southeast Asia, we washed up in Saigon, like countless foreigners and expats before us.  The 70s were long gone and the war but a distant memory, but we thought, if we can swing it we should stay at the Continental, famous during the American … Continued

Enjoy Ubud on Jalan Sanggigan

Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.” — Bruce Lee South East Asia is so different this time. When we came … Continued

Eating my way through Italy: a food tour in Rome

On my recent trip to Italy I was motivated by one thing and one thing alone: to find the best food. In a culinary country such as Italy I didn’t expect to have much trouble. Even the cheap pizza or gelato that was obviously less-than-authentic tasted better than anything I’d had before. Maybe it was … Continued

From Pasto to Tumaco in Colombia

Hitchhiking in North America has now become a forgotten art, mostly due to our fears and insecurities.  It is no longer fashionable to trust strangers.  Over time, though, I have developed hitching into a high, if personal, method of travel.  Many songs have been written about thumbing the highway, but the sensations and benefits of … Continued

LOSING Ten Years

Losing TEN YEARS! One of the greatest things about traveling without a set plan is that you get to do what you want. George and I traveled several years ago thinking we had few plans but looking back we many more than we do now. George loves to play his guitalele and I love to … Continued
