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,...

Who knew, when we started the Fascinating, Fun, Unknown Facts series that it would become something so fun, so easy-to-gain-snippets-of-wisdom-around-the-world sort of thing. Well, actually, as much as I’d like to think that we brought this out of the world, life-changing new thing to the net; the one and only article that for whatever odd and magical reason remains of the most (if not the absolutely most popular of all time) article on The Nomadic Family World Travel Blog is the Fun, Fascinating, Unknown Facts about Ireland. Not sure why the world is googling Ireland Fun Facts but weekly we get tons of new hits from this one. And so, we decided to bring many more fun facts articles out to keep bringing fun and knowledge out there- otherwise, if you’re not into our endless emotional drama nor desire to learn anything about the world, what’s the point? 🙂   One of my all-time favorites in the series is the Korea one, featuring fan death!

Fascinating, Fun, Unknown Facts About Argentina – The Country Fun Fact Friday Series

So, we are loving the Fun, Fascinating, Interesting, 11 Unknown Facts Country Series and this week bring you some cool info about Argentina. It all began with a sweet introduction with Alaska  and now we’re proud to present the odd-side of Argentina. 1. Argentina was one of the first nations on the planet to have radio television. The nation’s first telecast was made in August 1920. Around then, just 20 individuals had a radio receiver! 2. Argentine ladies experience the most astounding number of plastic surgeries – for every individual – on the planet. Argentina is maybe one of the world’s most looks-cognizant nations. Unfortunately, additionally more than 30% of its ladies also experience some manifestation of dietary issue. 3. On the 29th of every month, it is a standard to consume gnocchi which is a sort of potato dumplings called ñoquis in Argentina, a convention most likely presented by Italian settlers.

Fascinating, Fun, Interesting, Crazy, Unknown Facts About Alaska- The All-Awesome Series

Fascinating, Fun, Interesting, Crazy, Unknown Facts About Alaska- The All-Awesome Series

If you are here on The Nomadic Family World Travel Blog, you are most likely not looking for concrete information like where to go, what to do, and how to get there. You can find that on almost any other travel blog and website. What makes this little corner of the hood special is that I daintily vomit all over you all the emotional guck, pain, joy, and whirlwind of a family dealing/being/learning/stretching on the road. It’s raw, uncensored, and TMI-real. Surprisingly, I wrote a few fun, fascinating facts articles cuz I was curious and wanted to share that with you and people really went gaga over them. So far, I have written about Korea (who knew about Fan Death?) , Canary Islands (who knew about an entire language made of whistles?), and Mauritius Island  (which was a bit after learning that our house had been trashed but during us falling in love with the Chabad family in Kathmandu, Nepal). And, and this little bit really blows my mind, did you know...

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...

Malaysian Dialects, Culture, History, AND Color-blindness- Comprehensive, Awesome Interview- Pillows and Toast Hostel, Singapore

Yeah, yeah, I’m rubbing elbows with the big guys, and yes, I could possibly still find in the deepest crevices of my heart, the metta (loving kindness) to still associate with the little people like you. *cough* Our stay in Singapore was blessed by so much love and joy. You can see it in Human Kindness and Humility,  All A Weary Traveler Needs, and The Ming Behind The Making of The Movie. And now, we bring to you one of those amazing video interviews that teach us about humanity, a people, their history and culture, and show us two of their finest men. We totally fell in love with this pair, and the staff of loving people they surrounded themselves with. Did you know that Singapore, like Israel, has a mandatory military? I did not. So much I got from one interview, even though, in all honesty, the behind-the-scenes bit you don’t see is that both were dying to finish with me already so that they could go play...
