The Road of Life: Interviews with Lainie & Miro – Part Two

The Road of Life: Interviews with Lainie & Miro – Part One ended with a discussion about their favorite places (so far) and how they go about choosing their next destination.

Part Two delves into their expectations of each other, their commitment to activism, creative endeavors and snowballs – the white frozen rain kind. Again, there are Miro’s remaining “Bonus Questions”. He even comments to something about his Mother’s quirky remarks… Hope you enjoy the read!

de la pura vida Costa Rica

So, you take a trip to Costa Rica and fall in love. For Erin Morris, it was a love for the country, it’s people and a man. While ‘that man’ is no longer in the picture, Erin, and her dog, have embraced CR as their home. She’s continually honing her photography talent, teaching English and [...]

Fifteen People Have Spoken: 2010′s Best Stuff – Part One

I have stirred the proverbial pot a bit…

We can all check the web to find the Top 100 Travel Websites and the Best Music of 2010 and even the Best Breeds at the Westminster Dog Show. Granted, all fascinating stuff but why rehash it? It’s out there – over and over. (Yes, I really do understand the rankings thing.) But, do you want to be “just a number” or would you prefer to be remembered as a real person who had a real opinion too? Our contributors to this Round-Up Discussion voted for the latter. Due to the length and number of replies, this is Part One.

On the Other Guy’s Dime: A Professional’s Guide to Travel Without Paying – Book Review

I have always liked the idea of a working holiday. Especially if it’s a paid (working) holiday and I’m not the one “flitting (most if any) the bill”. Okay, maybe not so keen on the working part, but it comes with the territory. If you want to visit other countries – such as the United Kingdom, Israel, Bhutan, Turkey and Kenya – then the working holiday idea just may be your ticket to exotic locations. Professor Michael Schneider has done just that for several years and has authored his most recent book, sharing his secrets, upsides and pitfalls. Yup, there have been those too.

The Road of Life: Interviews with Lainie & Miro – Part One

Being on the ‘Road of Life’ does keep people in a somewhat constant state of flux. There is bad (or non-existent) internet, dead computers, travel time and a host of other issues. I must confess, it also took me a bit of time to compose questions that weren’t in the “So, whatcha up to?” style too. But, between the revolving “I’m sorry.” “No, I’m sorry” e-mails we finally came together on this interview. Actually, it will be posted in two parts as ‘bonus’ Q&As were offered up by Miro and worthy of inclusion. (They will be split into two parts also.)

So, without further ado, let’s see what Miro and Lainie have to say about their adventures in part one!!

See Simi Travel Blog

Setting personal goals is something many of us do – Simi has been no different. About 10 years ago, she decided to cover 30 countries by the time she turned 30 years of age. She’s almost there. Sleeping (well, sort of) with baby alligators, participating in volunteer projects and contracting Dengue Fever have not crimped [...]

Go Big or Go Home

Traci Suppa and her family may live in a ‘small’ town (no Starbucks coffee shop) but that does not stop them from thinking BIG. BIG as in road trips and the attractions found off those all-too-often-traveled beaten paths. Have you been to the “World’s Largest Dairy Store” or seen the “World’s Second Largest Garden Gnome”?

Justin-Klein.com: Life of a Traveling Programmer

To say Justin Klein is a “diverse individual” would be an understatement. He is a contract programmer based in both Kyoto, Japan and Los Angeles, California. Something says he doesn’t spend much time in either place when looking at his travel map. His site’s subtitle – Life of a Traveling Programmer – definitely strikes hammer [...]

Oops – Blackout!!

Many of you earn your living through your websites and blogs. Others of you earn enough to finance your travels while a few more (such as myself) work for online businesses. Almost all of us rely on the internet, cell phones and other devices to stay connected. What happens if…

Scenario: A massive solar flare. Numerous communication satellites are blinded or taken out completely which in turn causes a major, if not a total breakdown in the communication systems. You’re on the road. You now have zero access to the things that generate your income, keep you doing your job and/or your staying connected in general.

      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 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.
