Machu Picchu- The Legend We Missed- Life on the Road Decisions, Peru

Machu Picchu- The Legend We Missed- Life on the Road Decisions, Peru

Machu Picchu is one of those legendary fairy tales you can’t miss. You walk up that mountain, passed the clouds and walk into a world long gone, yet so much alive in spirit. We had heard of Machu Picchu and listened to countless travelers speak of it’s magic and how they remain in awe of it’s very aura. While the kids and I stayed in Lima, Peru in Nomade Backpacker’s Hostel we sighed, and yes, we missed it. Let me show you something so cool about this living history lesson and tell you why we just missed out on it. Stairs Go Up and Down Yeah, you knew that. And so do opportunities, and life, and relationships, and our money, and our moods. So, Machu Picchu will have to wait for us. We can’t have it all. We can’t. We can literally travel for the next eighty years and we just won’t see it all, do it all. Now that we are living in the Philippines (and loving life...

When You Keep Meeting Your Heroes Across The Globe- Passover 2012 (Lima, Peru)

When You Keep Meeting Your Heroes Across The Globe- Passover 2012 (Lima, Peru)

We’re so lucky. The Gods are smiling upon us. They do that a lot these passed few years. Yeah, the Gods are definitely paying us back, with interest, on some unearthly good Karma. We’re thrilled to cash in our chips. THANK YOU KINDLY STAR-DUST CREATORS! We’ll bask in the good stuff! So, we are at Modi and Anat Ephraim’s house. Have you ever told you our love story? I think I’ll have to ask Modi for permission how much I can say about the one family that probably had the most influence on almost every major parenting/family decision we’ve ever made. He’s important now, with full-time guards (when we saw him in Huanchaco, he had a convoy, dear God) and he wears suits that don’t wrinkle. When we knew him, back then, he was in the hood. So, we still treat him like a worthless nobody, but you’ve gotta be careful with the diplomatic sorts. So, for now, until I get permission in three copies with a few backup...

The Best Video About Peru

The Best Video About Peru

After traveling for a year in Latin America, you cannot forget the great moments we had experience there no matter how much time passes.  I had leaned to appreciate what we had in South America, for example, only after arriving to South East Asia.  In south America, we were able to communicate to the local on a deep level and by that, to reach great relationships. However, in SE Asia, our deepest converse goes to “Thank you” and “How much is it?”. It was quite difficult to have this radical cultural change. So when I viewed the video clip below about Peru, my heart was filled with joy and nostalgia. I recalled all the great moments we had in Peru, especially in Huhanchaco, Lima, and Cusco. How beautiful! Feel free to view some of the post we wrote about traveling in Peru but regardless, click on this touching video clip. How Cheap Can I Sleep?

New Friends, New Adventure: Dum, Dum, Dum…. To The Post Office With Enrique and Jorge (Lima, Peru)

New Friends, New Adventure: Dum, Dum, Dum…. To The Post Office With Enrique and Jorge (Lima, Peru)

This is so seemingly meaningless and mundane, but no. We’re on an adventure to unknown territories, and oh my God people lie by the way… Every person we met told us, “Oh, just two more blocks,” “Just around that corner” or “Just five minutes more.” They lied! Oh my God, they lied. And I bet they took great pleasure in doing so. And it was such a blazing HOT day! But, the Gods again smile upon us so kindly for we had with us ENRIQUE AND JORGE who were nothing less than magical angels. They were just hanging out in the hostel, bored, and we said, innocently, “Wanna come send this suitcase to the post office with us?” “Sure, why not!”And the adventure begins….   And they picked up the kids, made them laugh, played games with us the entire way, complained about the unbearable heat, and again, picked up the kids when the extremely hot sun coupled with the ‘two blocks more’ lie got too much for them....

How Cheap Can I Sleep?

How Cheap Can I Sleep?

As a traveling family, in addition to the day-to-day challenges we are facing, finding places to put our head in new places can be very challenging as well.  When we look for a new place to “camp out” for a while, we must consider several factors such as cost, space of the room, space of the hostel/guest house/hotel, potential of social options to us the mainly to the kids, safety, and convenience.  You can imagine how challenging it can be when we arrive to a place we have not idea about and the only information we got is according to someone else opinion. In the past, we followed recommendations of some travelers we met and sometimes we found ourselves so exhausted and disappointed.  And from to time we (thought we tried not to rely on this book) took the Lonely Planet Guide advices about certain accommodations and we arrived only to find out that things changed a lot since the book was written.   In addition, just like in wrote...

Too Much Information- What You Never Wanted to Know

Too Much Information- What You Never Wanted to Know

So, you thought we knew everything about us, right? Wrong. There are so many, many layers that you surely don’t want to know about us and that any sane person wouldn’t tell complete strangers. And that’s precisely why we are traveling the world forever, and more precisely, why you chose to read this blog; because we are wildly unpredictable, irresponsibly spontaneous, retardedly open, and clearly, insane. You guessed it, we’re going to get one step closer, you and I. So, let’s just take inventory here. Thus far, we’ve talked about how  I Hate Fucking Consumerism (YouTube video) , Shitting in All the Wrong Ways (YouTube) and Way Too Much Sex Talk (YouTube video). As I’ve talked about Fuck, Fuck, Fuck; Pretty Girls Not Cleaning Up Their Shit, Only The Very Special, Lucky, Rich, and Perfect (Like Me) Can Travel the World, and You Would Die If You Knew How Rich We Were. And now, are you ready? Here it is, the entire video series of us getting our tattoos...
