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!
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!!

Armed only with a restored 1971 VW Westfalia camper van, their 4 (now 5) year old son Bode, and maybe a bunch of needed equipment, the Rehm family – Angela and Jason – headed off to explore. Explore what, you may ask? Canada, U.S., Mexico and then just head south. Their mission: learn languages, volunteer [...]
In 2008, Lara Dunston was interviewed about her life as a travel writer and her experiences traveling with her husband, Terry Carter, who is also a travel writer, photographer and now – an expert in the art of eggs – culinary-style. (You think I’m kidding…)
Together, they have taken on a new project, Grantourismo!, which has them traveling from their home-base-storage-unit in Dubai to a new destination every two weeks over the next twelve months.
If you have ever thought about “Abandoning the Cube” (that cubicle which has greedily eaten up most of your waking hours), then this is the blog for you. Though coming from totally different backgrounds, Mike and Lauren have abandoned said cube, come together and offer up a great insight on how to follow in their [...]
Bob Dylan helped define a generation’s revolution – one that Leslie Engle thought had passed her by as she was growing up. In “real time”, it had, pure and simple. Fortunately, through educating, volunteering, cooking, and embracing everything Lao, she has found her own personal “revolution” and is enjoying every second of it all.
