We’re sleeping high above all of the activity that’s about to erupt down in the old town square – Jemma el Fna.
Well, we were sleeping. The abrupt, 5:00 a.m. call to prayer has, just minutes ago, made us hit the roof, so today – like every other day – we’re jumping out of bed and getting some work done before breakfast. We’ve settled into a pattern… a regimen that provides a sense of semi-sanity in the newness and chaos that is Marrakech. Read more
We have vacated our dream rental apartment in Barcelona. As I write this, we’re sitting at the airport having a pre-flight, early morning cup of coffee. Yes, we’re back in the game with airlines and their nefarious ways. This time, with a real heavy-hitter, Vueling. You’ve probably heard of Vueling. It’s the airline that hasn’t met a fee it doesn’t like to impose.
Just don’t call to inquire about those fees because they’ll charge you to speak with someone. Take that, despite the fact that Vueling claims to be “always thinking about you.” How sweet. Read more
Months ago, Michael over at Strux Travel was the first to tag us to participate in a project that asks participants to showcase 7 photos – super shots – that fall in the categories listed below.
Tomorrow, our 2012 travel dominoes start to fall at breakneck speed. We’ve got some fun journies on the horizon. In honor of this upcoming round of amazing adventures, here they are – our 7 super shots from past travel.
Last week, we started enjoying other bloggers’ contributions to the My 7 Links project and saying things like: “Those seven posts would be tough to choose! Glad we don’t have to.” Well, our satisfaction as observers was cut short when we found that our friends, the other K and C, over at Technosyncratic had nominated us to participate (and then so did our pal Breakaway Backpacker, Mr. Escandalo).
Travel seems like the universal dream; something that nearly everyone wants more of. We regularly get a lot of questions about our travel adventures. Beyond questions about where we’ve been and where we’re going, people always seem to be even more curious about the details of how we constructed our current reality.
We call it a “no vacation required” lifestyle because we strive to live deliberately every day. For us that means a life where we can explore the world, work virtually and give back along the way. One of our primary goals is to inspire people to build there own version of a no vacation required life. Along the way, we’re in turn inspired by people who want to break the mold. Read more
A few years ago, after visiting Paris and deciding to retool our lives, we made the decision to do some traveling in order to see the final continents on our list (and to figure stuff out!). First stop: Africa
Deciding to go to Zambia – one of the most poverty stricken places on earth – was a no-brainer. The timing was right, and we were eager to see/experience the reality of this way of life for ourselves and to visit the family we had taken under our wing from so far away. Our visit to Africa is what propelled our decision to do a complete overhaul of the way we look at life. Read more
