Our Tour

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 [...]

Man On The Lam

“Tall tales and tasty tidbits served with a dash of sarcasm…” is how Raymond Walsh describes his site. The tales may be tall but also true. The tasty tidbits are tantalizing (to say the least) and extremely useful. Having traveled the world over under his previous employment positions, he now travels on top of it [...]

Unclear of the meaning then, Evan and Mike (first cousins, by the way) discovered later on that it meant “two people working together productively”. With that definition in mind, both have quit their jobs and are now curing their wanderlust side by side.

The Khalerias

To quote: “Just in case you stumbled here by accident and dont have the first clue what a khaleria is….”, then let me explain. It is one part Sabeena Khan mixed with one part Ryan Galeria. Throw in a couple of backpacks, a camera (or two), give a quick stir and you have a photojournalistic [...]

LandLopers: Experiencing the World On a Budget

Though some may argue the point, “travel” does not revolve solely around backpacking. On the contrary, and Matt Long has proof. He enjoys hotels, resorts, not making his own bed, lounging by the pool and a few other “cushy” amenities. He also does it on a budget. LandLopers is a great place for “how it’s [...]

The Art of Solo Travel: A Girls’ Guide (e-book review)

I’m not quite sure why, but the title of this book has reminded me of “She’s Leaving Home” by The Beatles. Perhaps it struck a chord. Harkening back to my more youthful days when women dreamed about leaving home on some “wild” adventure but settled for the alternative – a domicile existence and the few days on vacation. Packing it all in to follow the dream was something few of us dared to attempt. Men went on adventures. Women just kept dreaming about them. Thankfully, the tides have changed…

    • A Girl and Her Thumb

      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

      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.
