Well, I guess I said I wanted an Adventure….

The thought of having to settle for the typical American “work-a-day” world gave Dana Newman the heebie-jeebies. Her cure: packed belongings and a one-way ticket to the Czech Republic (her ancestral homeland). Her adventure: finding living quarters, employment and exploring the world around her. It appears Dana has gotten what she asked for… So far…

    I happened upon your blog through a travel blog site. Just wanted to
    comment on a few things.

    1) You’ve got guts, girl! To just drop everything and leave to an
    unknown country not having any real set plans. I did something similar,
    but within the U.S., not to a totally different country!!

    2) It’s nice to read about an experience(travel blog) in which the
    writer is a normal person who is scared to death upon arrival(ie running
    out the back door of the restaurant in Prague). I read so many travel
    blogs in which the writer/traveller is so confident and travel savvy
    that it’s hard for me to relate to their experiences. I totally relate
    to your anxiety reading your Prague posts. Although, I’ve now travelled
    to over 20 countries myself and it does get easier over time, I still
    get nervous and anxious when trying to speak a different language,
    learning new customs and trying not to offend the locals.

      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.

    • Home and Away Blog profile

      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 live/work in comfort while spending quality time with Lucas and Easy (Ezekiel).

      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 roads of Kiwidom, searching for hidden treasures.
