Teenage Turmoil & Our Tel Aviv Family Vacation

Teenage Turmoil & Our Tel Aviv Family Vacation

1:47 a.m. ain’t what it used to be. I still love the utter silence, the aloneness, the ability to focus on the only thing making noise in the house- my fingers tapping on the keys. That part of my night-owl-ness I can still connect to. We’re leaving tomorrow for a week-long Israeli road trip and all the doubts of traveling again with my family make swallowing a real endeavor. We found the cutest little Airbnb five minutes walk from the beach. Awesome sponsors ready to make the Tel Aviv portion of the trip beyond kick-ass. Family, friends, and maybe even my long-lost cousins. All real woo-hoo-able. I think it’s the fighting around here lately that is bringing up all my fears and doubts about being in a closed vehicle or closed quarters with my kids. Like it or not, technology and having their own rooms have made our teenage-bursting home life more bearable when the shit hits the fan. Explode and then scatter, each to his own distraction corner....

RTW Kind Souls, Fresh Turkish Bagels, and Sprained Ankles- Istanbul Apartment Home Holiday Lettings Pashas House, Turkey

And so the love affair continues but if you haven’t read it yet, everything else here may appear out of context so I suggest you take a look at how we went from murder to love affair first.  And so everything we’d ever expected was over-satisfied and our hearts were touched beyond what we could have imagined. It’s like there was a team of loving Polish mothers worrying about us and taking care of us each step of the way. And so, these two videos just show snapshots of that love affair and how deeply we are grateful for yet another pair of angels guiding us on our way. Think you know anything?

Unconventional Life Choices- Fascinating Interview with Matt Indonesian Bush Pilot- Savedra Dive Center, Moalboal, Philippines

Unconventional Life Choices- Fascinating Interview with Matt Indonesian Bush Pilot- Savedra Dive Center, Moalboal, Philippines

I think we are super blessed in our travels to meet all sorts of interesting people from all walks of life. I think we are equally blessed that our lifestyle does not prevents us from being so busy doing life that we don’t have the time to get to know our fellow stranger. Our lifestyle gives us the time to be curious about others and learn from everyone who enters our sphere. Matt has the entire spectrum of Mother Nature’s mysteries covered. His job is flying the skies in this tiny plane as an Indonesian bush pilot. His passion is diving the seas to realize just how tiny he is and how vast and remarkable the underwater world is. It is with great honor that I present you one fascinating interview of one international guy who lives a very unconventional life. If you enjoyed this interview,  we’ve done really great ones with fascinating people across the globe. You may particularly enjoy: Ali from Scotland Saving the Oceans– Koh Rong...

Finding Home, Laughter, & This Great Freak- Savedra Dive Center, Moalboal, Cebu, Philippines

Finding Home, Laughter, & This Great Freak- Savedra Dive Center, Moalboal, Cebu, Philippines

I miss Lee. No, not the pretty one. That ugly guy. Yeah, that one. I would never say that to his face (the part about missing him, I mean; the part about him being ugly I said to him ALL THE TIME). I would never admit that I miss him to his face cuz admitting affection which would drastically limit my ability to cut him down at every potential given moment, and it is in there mere potential that the power lies. Yes, admitting how much I adore the crazy bald guy would be putting me in a huge strategic disadvantage and we’ll have none of that. Have you ever met someone who makes you laugh, but really laugh all, all, all, all the time? Have you ever walked into your place of work, or that hostel, or that friend’s house and felt your heart tingle with joy at the anticipation of seeing those you love? That just about explains how I felt walking into Savedra Dive Center every...
