The shortest version would go something like: almost normal, blessed, family life with three teenagers. The longer version would kinda hinge on an insane juxtapositioning of words like: remarkable, unbelievable children and parental worry that we’re helping [...]

Snapshots from Our Heart of Hearts Home- BackHome Hostel, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia http://thenomadicfamily.com/2016/11/snapshots-from-our-heart-of-hearts-home-backhome-hostel-kuala-lumpur-malaysia/ Wed, 30 Nov 2016 16:47:04 +0000 http://thenomadicfamily.com/?p=12839 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 [...]

Teenage Turmoil & Our Tel Aviv Family Vacation http://thenomadicfamily.com/2016/11/147-life-with-teens-and-our-tel-aviv-family-vacation/ Thu, 03 Nov 2016 08:54:41 +0000 http://thenomadicfamily.com/?p=12723 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 [...]

Nothing For Sale, Nothing to Flaunt, An Ocean to Share http://thenomadicfamily.com/2016/10/nothing-for-sale-nothing-to-flaunt-an-ocean-to-share/ http://thenomadicfamily.com/2016/10/nothing-for-sale-nothing-to-flaunt-an-ocean-to-share/#comments Fri, 07 Oct 2016 20:56:33 +0000 http://thenomadicfamily.com/?p=12596   Welcome to my empty sign. That’s all I can manage to give you today, and I see it as a real sweet deal. Nothing. Nothing glittering, nothing flashing, nothing telling you that someone else or someone else’s life is better than yours. Nothing indicating that that something else is what you need, or that [...]

Dead Lizards, Gardens, and Being Home in the Sun http://thenomadicfamily.com/2016/06/dead-lizards-gardens-and-being-home-in-the-sun/ http://thenomadicfamily.com/2016/06/dead-lizards-gardens-and-being-home-in-the-sun/#comments Thu, 02 Jun 2016 10:20:24 +0000 http://thenomadicfamily.com/?p=12540 So I unsuccessfully tried to sweep up his bleeding body with a dustpan as Ash (cat number 3 1/2) got distracted chewing up the still-thrashing tail. I took the distraction as my chance and screwed that up royally. In my hysterical effort to try and save the dying lizard, I bashed his head into the [...]

The Non-Christmas Revelations of an Un-Traveler- Nomadic Family World Travel at Home http://thenomadicfamily.com/2015/12/the-non-christmas-revelations-of-an-un-traveler-nomadic-family-world-travel-at-home-3/ Thu, 24 Dec 2015 16:50:49 +0000 http://thenomadicfamily.com/?p=12379 I’ve ceremoniously peeled off my sweat-drenched clothing four or five times now knowing that this time, this hot shower, this night I am shedding away this sleepless, achy dread and it’s over. It is now time to return to sunshine and energy, exercise and productivity, joyful motherhood and aliveness, living a passion-filled life and being [...]

Falling in Love With Finland- Lifetime Lovers of Lapland-Part One http://thenomadicfamily.com/2015/09/falling-in-love-with-finland-lifetime-lovers-of-lapland-part-one/ Wed, 16 Sep 2015 16:16:58 +0000 http://thenomadicfamily.com/?p=12202 We never know when we’re heading somewhere just how it will be. Usually, if it involves flights way-out-of-the-way-especially-to-this-one-spot or ships (which we are really loving lately!), taxis, rental cars and a lot of moving, in advance, we kind of sigh and know that we’ll have to get through the economic toll and the physical and [...]

Sail the Baltic Sea with Tallink Silja http://thenomadicfamily.com/2015/07/our-first-family-travel-cruise-ever-sail-the-baltic-sea-with-tallink-silja/ Mon, 27 Jul 2015 11:40:23 +0000 http://thenomadicfamily.com/?p=12125 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 [...]

Unfiltered, Unreal Sunset- Casa Del Mar, Langkawi, Malaysia- Family Travel Blog Treats http://thenomadicfamily.com/2015/07/unfiltered-unreal-sunset-casa-del-mar-langkawi-malaysia-family-travel-blog-treats/ Wed, 15 Jul 2015 06:56:32 +0000 http://thenomadicfamily.com/?p=6061 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 [...]

Stockholm, Sweden- Summer 2015 [One Really, Really, Really Cool Video!] http://thenomadicfamily.com/2015/07/stockholm-sweden-summer-2015-one-really-really-really-cool-video/ Fri, 10 Jul 2015 15:43:07 +0000 http://thenomadicfamily.com/?p=12094 So, we’ve loved Stockholm, Sweden- more than we imagined. You see, we’re usually not the ‘go-go-go-do-do-do’ sort of tourists. We’ve always looked at those who spend ten days on a powerhouse vacation and come home exhausted as missing out on the true value of travel. We’ve always said we travel vertically or “finger paint”– living [...]
