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 [...]
This particular ‘candy trail’ is the invention of Michael Robert Powell. He may not hand out sweets as we know them, but between his travel tales and electric artwork, his site fits the title he has chosen. Michael cuts through the proverbial bullshit of travel and the nomadic lifestyle. Please realize you have been warned [...]
Matt and Tara Banker packed it in, or in reality, packed it up and moved to Beijing, China. After spending the last few years living/working there, they have created The Middle Kingdom to write about their experiences and help others who are choosing the same path. As Tara states: “Not in Kansas Anymore”.
Both Andrea and John were seasoned travelers when they met, and eventually married. They ‘settled down’, spending four years in one place. Wanderlust struck again and now they have embarked upon a round the world journey. They share their stories plus those of other travelers they have met along their way.
Lunch with our landlady was a nice experience. She lives outside the city of Moscow. Its about a 30 minute drive. You have to drive to a place called “Luxury Village”. This was not my first time visiting “luxury village”. I had the unusual experience before Christmas of teaching an Oligarch’s son near where our landlady lives in Luxury Village.
Yulia (Julia) lives in one of the many gated private villages that seem to be common here in and around Moscow. We have gated communities in Britain, but they are few and far between. I would not mind living in one, if I could afford it, they are safer and cleaner than regular housing estates.
Simon Cordall has had his obstacles – one of them being the loss of his sight. I don’t mean “insight or inner sight or even hind sight”. I mean his visual sight. Something we all take for granted. He quotes: “There comes a time in a man’s life when, to get where he has to [...]
The journey started about 10 years ago for Steve and Jocelyn Broyles. They are on their fourth Sandcruiser (landcruisers with attitude) and still on the road. Okay, there have been stops in between but never for very long. Besides Calypso, their dog, they are joined periodically by an assortment of friends, family and other travelers. [...]
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 [...]
Luke Sewell had been living and working in the jungles of Costa Rica but, six months ago he decided to trade in the palm trees for a more conctrete jungle. He is now a Brit hiding out in Buenos Aires, Argentina and you can read about his ‘misdemeanors’ on his site.
Lindsay Holmwood left the US for Bangkok as an Associated Press journalist in 2008. As does happen more often than not – life got in the way and she’s been living in Stockholm since 2009. (A move made in the name of love.) Her blog is a compilation of her North American, Asian and Swedish [...]
