And Then It Hits You

by Kim July 12, 2016

For the last year we’ve been scanning the horizon like a lighthouse beacon, searching for what comes next and now, suddenly, it seems so clear.

Pictures of Sayulita, Mexico

by Kim November 24, 2014

It’s hard to believe that we’re closing in on a month in Sayulita already. Our time here has slowed to an easy pace as we work from our apartment during the day and explore the streets of Sayulita after dark. Let me show you around the neighborhood.

Welcome to the New Age

by Kim October 5, 2014

It’s because of our friends Judd and Amanda that we became fixated on the idea of buying crystals in the southwestern U.S.

Hiking Half Dome

by Kim October 1, 2014

We hadn’t planned on hiking Half Dome but then I saw it with my own eyes, rising 5,000 feet above the Yosemite Valley, and thought, I have to go up there!

And our next adventure is…

by Kim September 23, 2014

As the months ticked by we knew we had to make a decision about the future. Would we keep traveling? Would we settle down again? We both agreed that we wanted to keep going but not in the a-new-place-every-week kind of way that we’ve been going for the past seven months.

Photos of Glacier National Park

by Kim September 2, 2014

We’ve just recently wrapped up two weeks in Montana. It is, hands down, one of our favorite states. Despite the rain, Montana has charmed us with her rugged mountains, sweeping valleys, ancient glaciers, moody skies and, yes, even with her grizzly bears.

Saying Yes

by Kim August 12, 2014

I don’t know how it started but in the months since Brian and I came back to the U.S. and began our 7-month trip around the country we’ve developed an unspoken agreement. We accept any invitation that comes our way.

Life is fluid

by Kim July 13, 2014

One of the best things I have taken away from my study of Buddhism is the knowledge that life is fluid. Obviously, I knew this on some level, but it has been important for me to realize that I am predisposed to think that once something is a certain way it will be like that forever.

Lately. Scenes from Acadia National Park.

by Kim July 3, 2014

This time, I have tried to face the stress head on, to meet the discomfort, concern and the anxiety at the door, to swing the door wide open before it even knocks. I am trying to do the brave thing, to ask the hard questions. But I am filled with doubt.

The things I did(n’t) do in Nashville, Tennessee

by Kim May 15, 2014

We might not have done Nashville the right way but it was good enough for me. See, when you live in a tent an overpriced hotel by the highway feels like The Ritz. It’s all about perspective my friends.

A stake on the map: 1 month in a tent

by Kim April 20, 2014

It’s been about a month since we left on this adventure and I’m happy. I love sleeping in a tent and waking up to the sunshine streaming in and the birds singing in the trees.

Enough About You, Let’s Talk About Me

by Kim April 10, 2014

When we travel internationally and meet other Americans they are travelers too. They tend to understand why we are out exploring the world. Now that we are back in the states there are less people who get it and more who ask us how we are surviving. They want details.

Stuck on Wasatch Mountain

by Kim April 6, 2014

The plan was to visit Bryce Canyon National Park. But, friends, we are still in the midst of The Never-Ending Winter and it is cold outside. Camping in below-freezing temperatures and snowstorms does nothing for me. So we’ve changed our plans.
