Dubrovnik to Mostar

After a whirlwind two weeks with Chad’s folks, it was time to make our way toward our new four-week home in Sarajevo. We built in a couple of stops along the way so we could get a taste of Croatia and see a little more of the region. Dubrovnik, Croatia We flew in from Prague…

Worked Out: Santiago de Compostela and London

One nice thing about our life of travel is that it occasionally puts us where we need to be professionally. First, being in Budapest last summer opened many screening opportunities, then Japan this spring brought us our first interview for the new movie, and now back in Europe we were able to schedule three interviews…

Sarajevo: We’re Home

At long last we are settled again and able to develop a nice routine. We’ve spent the past month and a half since leaving Brasov bouncing all over Western and Central Europe – from Spain to London to Prague-Nuremberg-Vienna-Budapest-Prague with Chad’s folks then back into the Balkans for four nights in Dubrovnik, Croatia, and two…

Rest and Peace in Transylvania

Leaving Brasov was certainly bittersweet. Our nearly four weeks in Brasov were everything we wanted them to be and I told Chad that I thought August 2019 would be remembered as one of our best months ever. But, everything comes to an end, so this post is a tribute to our wonderful life in Romania….

Brașov: We’re Home

Brașov, Romania, is everything we wanted for August. It oozes European old-world charm, offers incredible opportunities for daily hiking, has every amenity you’d want, delicious restaurants, low cost of living, AND has superfast internet (if you want to know why Romania has super-fast internet, here is an interesting article). For the summertime, Brașov may be…

Full Irish

Chad and I decided to start our fourth leg in Ireland for a very simple reason: Dublin was the cheapest round trip flight to Europe in the period we decided to book the flight. That’s become our general strategy for the more far-flung continents – just get to the continent as inexpensively as possible and…

FAQ – What Did We Learn in Leg 3

From the very beginning of our planning, we expected our Asia leg to be the most exotic and therefore most memorable of our initial three long trips. What we didn’t expect was how many once-in-a-lifetime experiences we’d be able to pack in and how many of them we could only describe as “magical.” While so…

FAQ – How Did Our Numbers Look for Leg 3?

Bali – A Beautiful Mixed Bag

We had very high expectations for our two weeks in Bali. The town of Canggu has been #1 on Nomadlist, a website we use to help us estimate costs for places and get ideas on where to go, since before we left on our trip over a year ago. Over and over we’ve heard wonderful…

Extraordinary Osaka

Our life in Osaka was a funny mix of normal and amazing. We established an easy routine and were very comfortable in our small Airbnb apartment. We had perfect late spring weather throughout our stay and made a lot of time for activities – so much so that we left Osaka a little tired and…
