Kristine Arndt lives the ‘Beat Generation’ life style (think Jack Kerouac and Albert Camus) and is loving every minute of it. From singing for the President of Kazakhstan to herding cattle in Guyana, she has not let adventure pass her by in any way.
Frustrated with guidebooks and website information, while in Ankara (Turkey), Mike decided to started his own informational site. It is filled with personal stuff, as a traveler and tourist, that will aid others in finding those little gems we’d probably miss on this big blue orb we call home. His posts are realistic portrayals of [...]
“My life was content, meaningful, and secure.” writes Kate Convissor on her blog. But, she gave up (almost) everything for travel – except her dog Oreo. (He travels too.) Armed with a Dodge Durango and a 14-foot pull-behind camper trailer, Kate and Oreo hit the open road for places unknown. They may not know where [...]
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!!
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 [...]
With a B.F.A. degree in photography hanging on one of his walls, Bryan Brough left those (U.S.) confines for S.E. Asia. Once home, the road called to him again. This time – a year in Australia, photographing and blogging about his travels. Where the road will lead him next – only time will tell.
…Which, in Greek, means “And so I speak of you and of me”. Roxanne Krystali does just that as a Conflict Management Professional who has been helping women worldwide. Using her camera and the written word, she chronicles her work, thoughts, encounters, locations and oh so much more.
In August, 2008, Dave of The Longest Way Home, was interviewed about his search for that (proverbial) place we all like to call… Well… Home. The place where we set up a permanent camp, decorate the walls, kick off our boots at night, put books on the shelves, have home-cooked meals, and maybe don’t have to close the door when in the bathroom. Okay – a bit graphic but isn’t that part of what “home” really means? A place of comfort, security and belonging?
It’s now 2010. Has Dave found a home or is he still on the hunt?
It was just about family when Craig Cisero made his way to Italy on a six month pilgrimage. Little did he know what would really transpire… From harvesting grapes to teaching English, Craigorio Does Italia tells Craig’s tale of tracing his roots and finding much more along the way. (The story isn’t over yet.)
