FAQ – What Did We Learn On Leg 4?

FAQ – What Did We Learn in Leg 4? With each leg, we continue to learn a lot about the places we visit. But, I feel like we’re learning a little less about ourselves and long-term travel. However, we are still learning and perfecting our process and certainly had some good lessons on Leg 4…

Ending Up in Athens

After our wonderful weeklong road trip around Greece, we settled in for nine days in Athens. As is often the case, our first several days were spent catching up on work and getting back into a normal routine. But we made time for seeing many of the tourist sights too, especially toward the end of…

Greek Road Trip

Greece seemed like it would be the perfect capper to our Leg 4 itinerary for several reasons: we’d be wrapping up in November, so it would be one of the few places in Europe that would still be warm; it has a reputation for being less expensive than Western Europe; and we’ve both wanted to…

Summing Up Sarajevo

We really enjoyed our time in Sarajevo. It was exactly what we wanted for fall – a cool-not-cold climate, lots of trees changing colors, opportunities for hiking, cultural activities, and a low cost of living to allow us to have a high quality of life. Here are some of the highlights of our time in…

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…
