NoManic Monday Movie- How to Train for a Trek Wisdom from the Documentary Film Crew Itself

NoManic Monday Movie- How to Train for a Trek Wisdom from the Documentary Film Crew Itself

Meet them for yourself. Why would these people push so hard to share a story, a lifestyle that they believe to be worth telling about? What makes people say, “Yes, I want to the world to know about this and I have the perfect art form in which to share it with?” Well, our film crew this week is sharing how they ‘meated up’ and got ready to face the challenges of recording quality footage while in high altitudes and hiking in insanely hard terrain. They are, well, our heroes. Enjoy the preparatory thoughts of our dearest Angela, Noah, and Erin.  We’ll be adding more of their series each week on Mondays! It’s what we wait for each week. When we were in Greece in miserably confused, we waited for our Monday picker upper, and while stressing out at Kobi’s parents’ house, it was the Monday Movie from The Nomadic Family Project that grounded us! LOOOOve these guys TO DEATH!!!! They just started their second Kickstarter Campaign to fund recording our return and acclimation...

Happy Belated Father’s Day- The Nomadic Family Project NoManic Mondays Movie Series

Happy Belated Father’s Day- The Nomadic Family Project NoManic Mondays Movie Series

Are you serious? Are you freaking me out in twenty different ways all at once? The crew has started this NoManic Monday Movies series in which each week they release a short clip that is beyond adorable (and makes us look really good and all). And so, this week, in honor of Father’s Day (because I’m always on my own little timetable and not with it that last week in the states was Father’s Day), here is a little video called “Happy Father’s Day- A Tribute to Kobi” and it’s just so beyond lovely that we’ve watched it like 4 times a day since they posted it.   Favorite part: Where Kobi makes out with Noah’s cheek and the dancing! Oh the dancing! (Noah’s from the film crew)Enjoy!   The Nomadic Family Project is a documentary film crew committed to sharing our story as inspiration to others. This is their unreal (and our favorite!) pitch video. We could not be more honored, more in love with, more blessed, and...

Day 2- Our 1st Waterfall & Kobi’s Lap Dances- Family Travel Blog, Annapurna with Kids, Nepal

Day 2- Our 1st Waterfall & Kobi’s Lap Dances- Family Travel Blog, Annapurna with Kids, Nepal

So you’ve asked how was the Annapurna Circuit and I gave you a prelude after we had seen the worst, the scariest, and all the near-death experiences playing in a reel before us. And now, slowly, I am opening up these videos, all of the live moment-by-moment footage I took with our family of 12 (film crew and porters), and then 10 (lost a porter) , and then as a tribe of 18 (with eight horses). I am beyond honored to relive, remember, and re-cherish all parts that made this a life-changing event for us all. And so, without further ado… here’s just one video that shows adventure, how inappropriate and sexually immature my Kobi is, and how adorably in-shock and great the film crew is! Surendra the Porter Saves Us from Death, That 1st Waterfall & Kobi’s Lap Dance- THE. V-I-D-E-O!    Surendra The Hero He’s totally wild, more wild than the other four porters put together, and ironically, he was our wise ruler. He guided and literally...

Your One-Stop-Shop Telenovela of Family Travel Blog Trekking Adventure Hell- Day 1- Annapurna Circuit with Kids, A Multi-Media Celebration

It is time to start sharing our Annapurna Circuit with Children experience. All of it, and not just the life-threatening parts including hypothermia, fever and an extreme case of lethargic child at 5,200 meters, vomit, diarrhea, and all those drop-to-your-death cliffs that left us so very shaken up as parents who made these decisions on behalf of their children. We’d want to give you all of it. The good, the bad, the ugly, the really funny, and the thoughtful. So, welcome to Day One! It’s a lovely collection of photography and video all reflecting what our first day on the trail was like. Highlights: Oh My God! We’re ridiculously out of shape, whimpy, and totally not ready for the physical and mental challenges before us. That will sort of be the ongoing theme, in addition, to tons of furry animals, unidentified shit of all shapes and sizes, break-downs, song, tons of laughter, some serious “God, why are we doing this thing again?” talks, and amazing vistas. It’s basically your...

The Competition of Life- Win a Week in Dakhla- Family Travel Blog Perks

The Competition of Life- Win a Week in Dakhla- Family Travel Blog Perks

We’re back from hiking the Annapurna Circuit and I feel deeply that with some reflection I will better be able to share with you what it all meant to us. I think with some time I will be more apt in carving my words just right. I believe that what I have to say is dramatically different from what Kobi and I had read online before taking on this huge project with our kids. No, the Annapurna is not an easy trail. No, we would not have taken our kids if we had known the physical and mental challenges we would face. Yes, it was amazing, and will be more so with some distance. At one point when we were already over the pass and in Totopani when Kobi went on a wild goose chase to reclaim his hijacked/stolen/lost/forgotten laptop, in tears, I told the film crew how I’d love just one uneventful day, just one day with no near-death experiences and hair-raising drama. Just one day. And for...
