Our First Family Travel Cruise Ever!  Sail the Baltic Sea with Tallink Silja

Our First Family Travel Cruise Ever! Sail the Baltic Sea with Tallink Silja

We are feeling so very international and swave now, now that we’ve experienced our first cruise. We just went on a 20-hour Stockholm, Sweden to Riga, Latvia Tallink Silja International Cruise! You see, we’ve been perpetually barefoot, and done the liquified homelessness thing, and we even, even, even did the I Hate This Home, and That One and This One, but always, always, always we dreamed of a cruise ship. And then, and then, we still want our cruises dream. I’ve told you about it, right? I want to spend 6 months of a rtw cruise ship teaching spirituality classes and meditation as part of the entertainment staff. The kids say they are dying to do it, but who knows if 6 months will not sound so hot after a week? I don’t think you can get off the ship once you sign a contract. At any rate, we’re dreaming of an Alaskan cruise, or one off of Chile, no, no, we want cold, anywhere where we can experience...

Unfiltered, Unreal Sunset- Casa Del Mar, Langkawi, Malaysia- Family Travel Blog Treats

Unfiltered, Unreal Sunset- Casa Del Mar, Langkawi, Malaysia- Family Travel Blog Treats

Deep sigh. (Of gratitude, not sadness.) These were one of those oh-my-God-I-can’t-believe-we-got-to-be-there-and-do-that moments. It was unreal gorgeous! The Casa Del Mar Hotel which we had heard about for months, that quiet, romantic beach and it’s sunset, the food, the staff, the hotel manager whom we fell madly in love with. Langkawi was a dream and Casa Del Mar was 2000% a dream come true. I sometimes try to say in too many words what cannot be contained by the written letter nor the spoken tongue. I would like to show you a sunset video I did while at Casa Del Mar, and another three videos, two really funny, one really peaceful capturing sunsets around the world. There is deep magic in the sunset, and deep appreciation for having so much time to really be in them.  So many beautiful sunsets around the world but the Langkawi one. Wait. I know, but, no, and…. But, No, And “But” doesn’t fit because truly each one has been so uniquely differently and unreal. The colors,...

16 Documented Reasons to Delve into your Nature-Loving, Adventure Spirit in Malaysia-Nomad Adventures Earth Camp [Videos that Rock]

16 Documented Reasons to Delve into your Nature-Loving, Adventure Spirit in Malaysia-Nomad Adventures Earth Camp [Videos that Rock]

God, were we unprepared. We had every best intention to fall in love with this unreal place, to enjoy it’s connectedness to Mother Earth, and to enjoy the zip line, the omega, the caving, the white river rafting, and the unreal staff of Nomad Adventures, and we did, we did, we did, but we were just very lost and tired during this point of our adventures, as we’ve been so many other times on the road, and off. So all of our videos reflect how cool the place is and how much going to Earth Camp with kids is an unreal endless adventure that you cannot ever, ever forget (we are eternally grateful for being invited to participate in it all) and still, we were just tired and a bit overwhelmed with our lives, which is also partially portrayed between the lines. 🙂 And why now? Cuz we’re about to hit the road again and we look forward and backwards in spiral, joyful waves and love everything we experienced,...

New Child-Size Scuba Gear Photo Essay- Savedra Dive Center, Panagsama Beach, Moalboal, Cebu, Philippines

New Child-Size Scuba Gear Photo Essay- Savedra Dive Center, Panagsama Beach, Moalboal, Cebu, Philippines

Is is common practice that a dive shop will go and buy new child-size scuba gear to be sure they are absolutely serving you to the highest most professional, safest manner? Is it the norm that a dive shop will pride it’s customer service and the quality of it’s gear so much that it will make investments that it knows will take a long time to repay. even for one client? Is it what you find all over the world in dive shops that they care so much, they take the time to be absolutely meticulous in their safety and precautions? No. We’ve dove (or have we diven?) all over the world and our experience, and the irresponsible horror stories we’ve heard from fellow divers around the world, yells, “No!” But, hear ye, hear yea, we found a diamond in the rough. Seriously. If you want the cheapest deal you can get, don’t come here. If you want a very reasonably priced dive shop with high quality gear and...

Keeping That Next Dream Alive- Cool Country Facts about Spain- Family Bucket List #8: Burgos, Spain

Keeping That Next Dream Alive- Cool Country Facts about Spain- Family Bucket List #8: Burgos, Spain

As you may already know we’re going to Spain. And though I speak of it as if it is happening tomorrow, it’ s not, and it may never unfold into our next reality. But Kobi and I are hopeless dreamers and dreamers who have been lucky enough to take the radical steps necessary to make our ship sail in due course towards our ever-afters. We’ve also been extremely blessed by the winds being kind and the storms being relatively benign. We love living like a local and will continue our liquified homelessness and still after our six months in India are over this April, we’re ready to roam again to secret country number 15 [is that right?], Israel,and then Spain. Logically, to keep our dreams vibrant and vivid, and to further produce drool when we start to forget, we’ll pick a spot and do a bit of research to shaken up any fairy dust lethargy. And so…. E-hem. It is my esteem honor to enlighten myself and you with...
