So they are really going through with this! Every day, they make a few more dollars towards their $10,000 goal. I know, for a fact, that that $10,000 doesn’t cover it, just alleviates some of the debt they will have to incur to pursue their passion of bringing our story to the world. And hence, we’re here to support it, in any way that we can. Welcome to this little contest.
Contest starts May 25th! Good luck!

Just like we thought we knew how to be parents before we had kids, we were sure that all the prep-work we had done (eh-hem, Kobi had done) would make our access to finances a breeze. We still have that amazing sleeve Kobi’s mom sewed up for us to hide the most important stuff. We still have the traveler’s checks, unused, that Kobi purchased for a rainy day waaaay back in 2011. We still have our American and our Israeli credit cards. But, we also have had a lot of trouble lately using those credit cards and have found ourselves (*cough* Kobi *cough*) running to ATM machines to withdraw money for some basic purchases. [...]
What Is Your Favorite Place In The World- 19 International Travel Bloggers Answer-RTW Photo Carnival
What is your favorite place on the entire planet? OMG, tough question right? Is is that little garden beyond the strawberry patch on that mountain, or that sandy tropical beach there where the palm tree swayed just so? In our third year of world travel, I can still tell you that debatably my favorite place on the globe was sitting on that neighbors-threw-it-away-so-we-took-it coral/pink sofa, with my favorite cat in the world Bareket in my backyard with the wind chimes doing their thing, cat purring, my upper Galilee mountain-side wild grass dancing in the sunlight breeze. The couch and my soul-mate cat are both gone, but my memory of that spot, those moments are still there.

No Home, No Job, No Plans, One Hell of an Adventure- Unreal Guest Post From Jamie At Great Big Scary World
In Israel, we have this super famous singer named Chava Alberstein. She’s surprisingly well known outside of Israel too. She’s got this one song called “London” in which she describes that she’s going to London and she’ll be so busy shopping, strolling through the different and exotic, dining out, and attending high-class entertainment venues. At the end of the chorus she says something genius and profound,“London’s not waiting for me. There, also, I’ll be alone.”
And she’s right. We can get as busy as we want, as productive and time-management-y as we wish, but we are who we are wherever we’ll be. Same shit different day. Same me different continent. Yes, and no. Yes, because I can’t escape who I am and what gnaws at in the silent chambers of my soul no matter how far I go. No, because when you travel, you’re not busy with carpool, cleaning the house, running errands, and being productive trying to scotch-tape the breaking pieces of your life in place. And no because when you travel slowly, you’re not busy with logistics, seeing all the sights, and all the flotsam and jetsam of being on the move, and you can do some serious dream-come-true-making through mental, physical, and spiritual renunciation that you simply could not back home.
So, we went to London many years ago, eons before the kids were born, once with my little brother while chasing our favorite rock star Mika, and yes, we want to go again with the kids for our newest insanity plan. [...]
In case you didn’t think we were insane, now, you know, without a fraction of a doubt, that we are. Enjoy all them lil family moments that should not be published, but are (indication number two that we are not suited for the general public). We love you.
