Date Night: Dinner, Wine & A Movie

Date Night: Dinner, Wine & A Movie

on Mar 6, 2014

In search of a Margaret River Valley wine map, we stopped into a local tourist information office. We were unsuccessful in scoring a map, but didn’t leave completely empty handed. As we exited the office, a brochure caught my eye: Movies at Cape Mentelle. On many occasions, we talked about going to a movie and even scoped out the movie selections in a number...

A Day at Cottesloe Beach

A Day at Cottesloe Beach

on Mar 5, 2014

We read a few independent guides about things to do in Perth. Many of them recommended spending a day at one of the great, local beaches. Our new-found “Perthonian” friends had also recommended the beach and told us a few of their favorite spots along Cottesloe Beach. So, we decided to heed the advice and spend a lazy Tuesday afternoon at the beach! For...

Unique Work Locations

on Mar 1, 2014

We naively thought that it would be fairly easy to work while traveling. Although it has been easy in some locations, we never anticipated the level of stress that working would add to our trip. Much of the stress has been introduced by factors outside of our immediate control like access to dependable Wi-Fi connections. As a result, we’ve had to be flexible...

Boxing Jellies

on Feb 28, 2014

Snorkeling does not rank high of my list of favorite vacation activities. I much prefer spending time on the ocean, as opposed to in the ocean. The sea is unpredictable and can be very unforgiving. I do not like the prospect of being touched, nibbled, stung or bit by any of the lurking marine life. Kevin has tried to reassure me multiple times that the fish have no...

Australia’s Not-So-Scary Wildlife

on Feb 25, 2014

As we travel around Australia, people frequently inquire if we’ve had any encounters with the unique Aussie wildlife. They mostly want to know if we’ve been frightened by the dangerous wildlife that exist. Australia is not only home to marsupials, but there are also some rather large spiders and a significant snake population—many of which are poisonous....

A Silver Lining to a Work Day

on Feb 2, 2014

Sometimes things just do not go as planned … As Thursday night turned into Friday morning, Kevin found himself continuing to battle a poor internet connection. Once again, he stayed up until the wee hours of the morning to meet a client commitment. Unfortunately, he spent more time battling the intermittent connection than making progress on client work. After...

Laws of Nature

on Jan 31, 2014

Nature and I are not always the best of friends. We have a little bit of a love-hate relationship. The hate mostly stems from my dislike of bugs, insects, snakes, spiders and really any type of creepy crawler. I can live in perfect harmony with any of these creatures as long as they do not cross into my personal space! Unfortunately, most of these creatures do not...

Free Australian Open Tennis

on Jan 11, 2014

Melbourne hosts the world’s best tennis players for two weeks in January during the Australian Open. Our decision to visit Melbourne was heavily influenced by the opportunity to attend the Open and watch live tennis. Like Mother Like Daughter I grew up with a mom who is an avid tennis player. For as long as I can remember, we would watch every major tennis...

Home Away From Home

Home Away From Home

on Jan 9, 2014

We spent the first four months of our travels covering a lot of ground through Europe and China. The pace was fun but a bit exhausting. So, we decided that a change of pace that included calling one city “home” for a few weeks would be a good idea. We chose Melbourne. Staying in one place for several weeks would give us a different experience. It would...

on Jan 2, 2014

Traveling the world has been a challenging, rewarding and fun experience. Although Kevin has been great at embracing our new lifestyle, there is one other thing that he misses most: the NFL… specifically the Broncos.
