So, today we returned from the most astonishing journey of our life…a 26 day, around the world odyssey by private jet. It was a job that we were sought out to do. I hadn’t really given it much thought about how it came about until this morning.
Where’s Waldo… always comes to mind when I begin writing a “Where in the World are we?” post because the character Waldo is often elusive, something we often are ..often so much so that we can’t seem to find ourselves. I know I’m perpetually lost…and I love it. This is why I do recaps. It […]
Today I harvested seaweed. Yep, seaweed, it seems a good alternative to fishing and provides a needed food source throughout the world, mainly in Asia. Seaweed is also used in cosmetics and in the production of agar. To its credit, seaweed farming is labor intensive (good for jobs) and uses little technology making it […]
My underwater world has been shattered in a wondrous, magical way. I have discovered an entirely new layer of world below the blue that I never knew existed. One that has been cleverly cloaked right before my eyes. And it reminded me of a Cuban dance. So let me digress. The Traditional dance of Cuba […]
First, let me explain our absence from the blog. It’s been more than a month since my last post (forgive me Father for I have sinned?). I won’t apologize for it because when we’re not writing we’re gaining incredible insight on life through travel…which, of course is what we write about. So in that case, […]

I’m truly beginning to scare myself. My every waking moment is spent buried in this obsession. What I once simply loved has truly taken over me. I still like to blame my parents as they started me traveling at a young age. By age 10 I had explored Europe and the Caribbean, and the love […]
See the USA….in your Chevrolet Or a Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab with the Hemi 5.7, it doesn’t matter…. but I always thought the tune was catchy…. While our travels have taken us around and around the world, last week they took us just 1200 miles away from home, a short jaunt over to Nebraska […]
I was messaging with a friend of mine after my last post went up (5 Responsibilities of a Certified Diver). He told me he was going to recommend my blog to his new Open Water class tonight. So we started talking about how cool it was to be an instructor and watch students take their […]
The issue of responsibility has certainly been my kick lately and I’m really not sure what brought it up, probably listening to people shirk responsibility in everything. No longer is a traveler responsible for anything that happens when they travel. Blame it on the travel agent. No longer is a parent responsible for his […]
