Snapshots from Our Heart of Hearts Home- BackHome Hostel, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Snapshots from Our Heart of Hearts Home- BackHome Hostel, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

I think it was before flood number two but after flood number one and it’s just the kind of thing I wanted to remember on Today. Today, I’m living my domesticated life here on a mountain-side in Israel. Today, I coached a gorgeous woman who is about to set off on their family’s world travel adventure and asked really powerful questions like, “What if my son blames me later for all that he missed back home?” Today, I sit with purring Kitty Cat and feel grateful that Kobi and I are figuring out how to live without the 9-to-5 lifestyle. Today, I’m so terribly grateful for the normal shifts and struggles and joys of raising three teenagers in a normal life. And so, in honor of today being just as it is; in honor of the November skies thickening and preparing themselves for all sorts of winter rains; in honor our life here at home, I wanted to remember BackHome- our truest home in Kuala Lumpur for 35 whole...

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....

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...

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,...

Manti-Ravioli,Yoghurt & Olive Oil-  Red Basilica Cafe & Otel, Bergama, Turkey

Manti-Ravioli,Yoghurt & Olive Oil- Red Basilica Cafe & Otel, Bergama, Turkey

All of this learning magic was made possible because of Fatih at The Red Basilica Hotel who was kind enough to host us for two nights and Izim at SmallHotels.com.tr who was insane enough to coordinate for us a 5-week tour with the Small Hotels across Turkey. We could never say thank you enough to those who believe in us enough to say, “Yes, come, child. I will invest in your dream,” and to Fatih for believing that man is man (regardless of the flag and what governments try to teach us) and that love is love (regardless of where you come from). Fatih, as a retired international basketball referee who had visited Israel many times, reignited in us a passion for sports which we converted into buying a skateboard and soccer ball in Bergama and using with great family passion. YOu can find them on Facebook here and see our arrival Facebook album here. Should you come to Bergama, we truly hope you stay at the Red Basilica Hotel with...

Most Magical Place on the Planet- Cappadocia, Turkey- RTW Nomadic Family Travel Question #29

Most Magical Place on the Planet- Cappadocia, Turkey- RTW Nomadic Family Travel Question #29

After three and half year globetrotting, it’s a huge honor to sit back, sigh, and reflect. There were moments that sucked beyond comprehension, moments where I wanted to crawl into fetal position and be ‘home’ (whatever that really means); and there were moments when I raised my hands to the heavens or hugged my kids and Kobi even closer still, and thanked God/the fairies/the stars for our unreal fortune and luck to have been able to have had just that moment. We grew so close, fell apart, witnessed, cried, laughed, got lost and found in seventeen lands and always still in the chamber of our own souls. And sometimes, we’re asked THE question, the one that take my breath away- where was your favorite place in the world, which is evergreen bittersweet for there is something unquenchably romantic about the longing of the human heart, and how, no matter how wonderful it was, or how it could never be that again, or even no matter how remarkable the Now...
