Gorilla trekking in Uganda isn’t easy, but it will leave you affected in a meaningful way.
When we decided to come to Japan for the cherry blossom season Dan had the idea to look into tickets for sumo wrestling. We discovered that a match was being held in Osaka and quickly looked into tickets. The ticketing process is quite involved. We ended up pre-ordering ours from a website called buysumotickets.com to have a chance at getting them. First you choose the date you’d like to go, then pay… Read More
We spent about four months wandering about the UK. London, Wales, Ireland, Scotland…we covered some ground. A common theme, whether it was looking out the window or driving up the single track road to our housesit in Wales, on the road causing a traffic jam driving up to Giant’s Causeway in Ireland or on the hills in just about any countryside, was sheep. Lots and lots of sheep. The sight of them,… Read More
We rented on this sketchy platform to avoid the extortionist pricing of the rental agencies and now we were stuck with heaven knows what kind of service and a dead car.
In Northern Ireland, on the far northern shore, there is a beautiful coastline named The Giant’s Causeway. You can drive the coastal route, if you have some serious driving skills and the fortitude to play chicken on incredibly narrow winding roads with an insane speed “suggestion” of 60 mph, not knowing what sort of farm vehicle/equipment may be around the next blind turn. Luckily Dan has had quite a bit of practice… Read More
We spent most of our time trying to figure out if we should skip Epernay and Paris and buy a one way ticket to California, bring Enzo with us, get out of our one year contract for the car and just wait to see what happened with what would surely become a pandemic or if we should keep to our plan, board Enzo in Epernay, keep the car and trust that we would be able to come pick him up and continue on our journey.
So there it was, the end of my epic hunt. Moby Dick and family even better than I had hoped for and a far better ending for me than poor old Ahab.
Ok, that is seriously beautiful! There were gasps of disbelief from the people behind me and I think I heard one horrified voice exclaim “They only take reserVAtions!” I love the look of it, but I was not disappointed to be leaving the House of Attitude behind. Back to my humble campsite please!
Could there be a more charming place? Harbor wrapping around the city center, flowers planted and hanging from every possible spot, well maintained lovely architecture and polite foot traffic. We stayed at a lovely AirBnB in Saanich, a short ride outside of Victoria and elected to spend one full day in the city, having been there on one other occasion. We started in Chinatown, a small, but vibrant part of the city… Read More
The point where you worry if everything you have been planning for the last 5 years was a horrible mistake. Were your skeptical friends right? Do you have to go back home with your tail tucked between your legs and try and buy back all your belongings you sold online? Is it good the house hasn’t sold yet? A bit of an over reaction but holy Hannah, this is the second trailer… Read More
