Save the World While Traveling

I may be a bit behind, but I finally managed to watch Before The Flood. The movie produced by Leonardo Dicaprio as he explores the threats facing human kind from climate change. The movie was available for free streaming for a few weeks – but I’m in the African bush and streaming is a luxury! You can usually find us with active voices of being more sustainable travelers. We try to maintain a small footprint when we are traveling and in just everyday life. Throughout Africa, we are either camping or highlighting the many eco-lodges around the continent. However, Leo’s movie struck a cord … Read More

I want to Travel the World

We just crossed the border from South Africa over to Namibia. I am over the moon with excitement for what this trip through the Namibian desert will bring. However, it is also a milestone for me because I have now set foot in and traveled through 50 countries!

Long ago, I told myself I would see the world. Having traveled to 50 countries I have now been in more than 25% of the … Read More

The Cost To Travel The World

It’s officially been a year since we dropped everything, left New York City, and packed our bags to see the world. It was mutually decided that our twenties were too valuable to spend doing something we didn’t believe in. In 12 months we managed to visit 19 countries across two continents: Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Cyprus, Turkey, Italy, Morocco, Slovenia, Serbia, Macedonia, Albania, Montenegro, Croatia, Greece, Seychelles, South Africa, Swaziland, Mozambique, and Lesotho in that order. So much does it cost to travel the world? The Cost to Travel the World When we left we had a decent savings account, but ultimately had no … Read More

The Day I Became a Nazi Fascist, and How My Hair Bore The Blame

The Day I Became a Nazi

There are three things I don’t look forward to when traveling – laundry, redeye flights, and haircuts. Thankfully the last one only needs to happen about every three to four months for me. However, when I am traveling I usually double that and push it to eight. I’ve gotten my hair cut once while abroad at a salon in Italy, and it was fantastic. The stylist and I couldn’t understand each other, but I brought her a photo of what I wanted and she went to work. She chopped eight inches of my hair, and I can honestly say it … Read More

Movies about Africa

Before going to Africa it’s important to learn a little about the continent. One of the best ways to do that before is watch some movies about Africa! From the lions in the serengeti to the some of the worst civil wars on the continent, here are my favorite movies about Africa to watch before going. I grew up in the 90’s, and I can’t think of the animals in Africa without thinking of the Lion King.

The Best Carry On Backpacks

Finding the best carry-on backpack for your next trip is critical. I spent weeks going over my choices before purchasing. The result? My favorite bag I’ve ever owned. And it’s still going strong after two years of travel. It’s made it on countless flights, buses, and taxis. And I’ve had it on my back in the Sahara Desert, Rome, The Drakensberg Mountains, and Belgrade. I travel full time so the luggage I carry on a plane is as important, as purchasing a new car is for others. Nothing can make airfare more laborious than being unprepared or having the wrong baggage. After all, … Read More

Why terrorism will not stop me from traveling

It seems that this past year has been the year of terror in our world. Forget about global warming sending us into an apocalypse, there are crazy people on this planet that just want to beat mother nature to it. Next week will be the six-month mark since we left home for an indefinite life on the road. Besides spending six weeks in Morocco, we have traveled through Europe the entire time. The first wave of terror hit us the night we landed in Istanbul on November 13, the night of the Paris attacks. I won’t deny that we were … Read More
