“You guys have got to weigh in on this debate,” said our friend’s e-mail.
I figured I’d check it out. Awake and chugging coffee early in the morning, I had nothing better to do in my jet lag induced haze here in Italy. Read more
National Parks were a big part of the motivation behind planning this segment of our current adventure – the Pacific Coast road trip. As National Park maniacs, it was becoming – with each passing year – more and more unacceptable that we hadn’t yet made it to Yosemite. That’s as bad as being a gambler who hasn’t been to Las Vegas.

A lot has been going on. Time to get you all caught up. We’re married (in a way that will stick this time). We’ve started our Ultimate Honeymoon (why not celebrate with a sequence of “best of” travel experiences?). Read more
None of our adventures beat those in which we find ourselves in a chill, restorative environment. It seems we’re half crazy half the time (especially lately), so we love – more than anything – accommodations that dilute the crazy quotient. Read more

This is the week of the year that you’ll hear the word “happy” more than any other. In honor of that, we asked our friend Britt – the ultimate happiness seeker – to share some thoughts. Read more
December was starting to seem like, well… kind of a welcome distraction. A couple of weeks ago, fully satisfied with the year that was, we attached pretty much all of our attention to 2013. Heck, even our “best of” 2012 post was published. Read more
We lucked out on Small Business Saturday.
Since we never close charge/credit cards we no longer use – because it can hurt your credit (how screwed up is that?) – we had a few retired American Express cards that we could fire up for the event. Read more
It’s that time of year again – the season of gratitude, the time for giving and receiving. That can only mean one thing… Passports with Purpose (PwP) has arrived! Read more
Although we’re in Costa Rica, this isn’t a post about Costa Rica. It’s about what we’re up to every year in October / November, and it just so happens that – this year – Costa Rica is the perfect place to do it.
