17 Unforgettable Moments from 4,000 Days on the Road

Traveling every day since January 2102, we’ve gained a treasure trove of memories. We’ve seen the sunrise over 20,000-foot peaks, walked the streets of ancient civilizations, and met hundreds of people we now call friends. Countless moments brought a smile to our faces, though there are a few that have left a deep imprint on…

Colorado Road Trip: Best of The Rockies

Who’s got a friend who moved to Colorado recently? Just about everyone…because it’s awesome. It’s a state where mountains erupt from the earth with red cliffs, snowy peaks, and sand dunes. Cities are as cosmopolitan as they are granola, with bankers leaving work early to hit the mountain bike trails and farm-to-table waiters serving to…

Mazatlán, Mexico: Home Away from Home

Where would we like to revisit, live, or retire? We have very different answers to these commonly asked questions, but when it comes to our “golden years” … Mazatlán, Mexico has dibs on us. With 300+ days of sunshine per year, beachside apartments for less than $250/month, incredible food, affordable health care, and a two-hour…

The Oldest City in the Americas

Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic doesn’t get nearly enough credit. It’s the oldest city in The Americas (est. 1496) and home to the first cathedral, university, castle, monastery, and fortress in the New World. If you knew that, good on ya, but I feel like every person we’ve told is as surprised as we were. Why…

Refueling in Wine Country: Marlborough, New Zealand

The phone rings…”Annie, the grapes are ready to pick! If you and Mike want to catch the harvest, come to Marlborough ASAP.” It was Joanne and Bruce Kerner on the line, our family friends that followed their dream to start a vineyard in New Zealand. Ever since Kerner Estate opened in 2000, I’ve been dying…

Liveable Loveable Chiang Mai

When people ask us, “If you could live in any city in the world, where would it be?” In Africa we’d say Cape Town, in South America…Buenos Aires, in Europe…San Sebastian, Spain, and in Asia it would be Chiang Mai, Thailand. There is something so loveable and liveable about this little northern city. It’s got…

Phnom Penh Crossroads

Phnom Penh Crossroads

The pace and intensity that we travel even boggles us sometimes. We average about 2-3 days in each place and try to explore as much as possible–from local markets to monuments to mountaintops. Phnom Penh was a little different. The scruffy Cambodian capital does have some worthwhile sites, including incredible Khmer Rouge memorials, but really…

Adventures in Southern Thailand

Surviving 12/12/12 mostly unscathed, we led our six fearless friends on a race to see as much as Southern Thailand as their remaining five vacation days would allow. On the docket: Khao Sok virgin rainforest, Phang Na Bay’s karst islands, party Phuket, and the mellow beaches of Racha island. GO! Khao Sok National park Beaches…
