A while back, I asked people for their answers to three questions, including a ‘short’ explanation for each one. I received what I asked for and more. So, without further ado, enjoy the read (and links)!
The thumb. A very useful part of the anatomy, especially when you decide to head out into the world, hitchhike and use other modes of transportation. For Jo Magpie, it (both actually) have served her well in her travels – always heading east. She’s once again on the move. Yup, east.
Naomi, David and their two sons are ‘on a slow roam around the world’. Though both successful, David didn’t want his children to view him as the dad who was always working. So, with the business and house sold, possessions relocated – the four set off to explore. Their style of travel allows them to [...]
In 2008, the Annison family moved from the UK to New Zealand and bought a boat. In 2010, they upgraded to a camper van to explore the country. Though the cats stay home to help the elder son with the yard work and house, the remainder of the family (including the dogs) traverse the open [...]
As with most ‘wanderers’, Sam Kynman-Cole has traversed certain parts of the world. From Asia to Europe, the US, Canada and a few others, he’s been playing Squash. No. Really. He likes playing Squash. He also likes driving across country and doing road trips. No matter where he goes, it definitely is his ‘playground’!
Indie (the dingo-looking dog) invited Jenny Hoobler and Ryan Kilpatrick to South Africa when Jenny won a Fullbright Award to conduct research at the University of Pretoria. Hey, who can refuse a dingo-looking dog named Indie?! Certainly, not me! Check out their explorations of life in the Rainbow Nation.
Kristine Arndt lives the ‘Beat Generation’ life style (think Jack Kerouac and Albert Camus) and is loving every minute of it. From singing for the President of Kazakhstan to herding cattle in Guyana, she has not let adventure pass her by in any way.
Turning 40, it seemed the right time for Julie and Jason to rent out the house, break from their jobs, buy a motor home and obtain Charlie’s pet passport. What was to be a one year tour of Europe has them thinking they may remain on the road awhile longer. Charlie (their terrier) seems all [...]
Frustrated with guidebooks and website information, while in Ankara (Turkey), Mike decided to started his own informational site. It is filled with personal stuff, as a traveler and tourist, that will aid others in finding those little gems we’d probably miss on this big blue orb we call home. His posts are realistic portrayals of [...]
If you are reading this article, that’s wonderful! It means two things to me: 1) you were given the opportunity to learn such a skill, and 2) you have had some type of access to real hand-held books at certain points in life. Though I spend a great portion of my time reading, much of it is now from online sources. I sigh as I pass the collection of bound printed paper calling out for attention. Most display bookmarks somewhere within their depths. All are begging me to pick up them up where I’d left off. I sigh again as I tell them ‘hopefully tomorrow’…
