Plunging into my Fears

20 Comments 17 January 2013

I had made up my mind, I wasn’t going to do it. Nope. Not doing it. Yes, I was feeling slightly guilty, but dammit it was cold outside. I’m old, and maybe I should just be ok with acting my age for once – I don’t need to prove anything. The wind was howling, and [...]

Leaping into the History of Lana’i

2 Comments 22 November 2012

After a few days of luxurious relaxing on Lana’i I was ready to get dirty and really explore the island outside of its regions of Four Season’s luxury. I set out to learn more about the history of Lana’i and I quickly learned that South Lana’i’s Kaunolu trail is where you can find all of [...]

Shark Adventure in Hawaii

20 Comments 01 November 2011

Da dum, Da dum, Da dum…. I hate scary movies; I’ve been a terror wimp my whole life. I have never even watched Jaws. The movie poster alone sent me into tears running for my mother and making me think twice about jumping into the lake – let alone an ocean. It was good that [...]

Bad Things do Happen on the Mongol Rally

1 Comment 20 August 2011

By the time this post goes live, I’m hoping that I will be close to entering Mongolia.  I feel (and hope) it’s at this point I can breath a small sigh of relief.  As we’ve traveled through Europe and Central Asia, I’ve been slightly on edge because driving a car through these parts of the world as [...]

Do Things That Scare You

2 Comments 27 July 2011

  I’ve been lucky enough to meet up with many friends in London in between doing Mongol Rally prep.  One of the friends I met was Warren and Betsy Talbot from Married with Luggage Blog.  Meeting them for the first time after working with them digitally was a real treat.  It was as if I [...]

Travel Scams – On Guard!

21 Comments 30 November 2010

People always ask me if I’m scared to travel alone; my answer is “Not normally.” Sure there have been some crazy taxi rides and I always get a bit nervous when I arrive in a country late at night for the first time; however, overall I’ve never felt like I was in life threatening danger. [...]
