The vision is becoming more and more clear…and it’s really exciting to not only define that vision with my partner in crime, but also work thru all of the many steps to turn that vision into our reality. It’s no doubt gonna be a process, but I know we will get there eventually. And when we […]
I recently stepped away from work so that I could focus on some personal matters that have long been neglected. It’s been a really productive break, and has reinforced my belief that now, more than ever, it’s time to get out there. Myself and my family are at our best when we’re out there exploring […]
From time to time, I plan to spotlight some of our favorite places that we’ve travelled to over the years…and the first place I’d like to start with is St. John in the US Virgin Islands. We first visited St. John in January 2011 to celebrate our anniversary. The actual travel (flight + taxi + […]

Thankfully, there’s one “adventure” that I’ve always made at least a little bit of time for every year, and that’s backpacking. It’s such a rewarding experience that always brings into sharp focus the most important things in my life. I will backpack as long as I’m physically capable…the rewards are truly too many to list.
No question that traveling costs can add up fast. But I’ve found that there are a ton of ways to help minimize the costs. Here’s just a few of my tips for taking that dream trip without breaking the bank: HomeExchange.com: For a relatively small annual fee, you can gain access to 65,000+ houses in […]
We had an absolute blast on our trip to the Big Island. So many memories and quality family time…and definitely mission accomplished. We did this trip right! A picture is worth a thousand words they say…so here’s a few of my favorites from the trip.
My first “real” travel was back in 2000 when I took a month off of work (it only took 2 years to hit my first burnout point) and traveled mostly solo around the Hawaiian islands. I spent my nights at different hostels and visited nearly all of the islands. Along the way, I met new […]
Much of my recent “free time” has been spent trying to identify what’s been de-prioritized in my life. Certainly, there was no shortage of important items that have fallen “below the line.” And some of those are so damn important to me, making me wonder “how did I get so far off track? How could health, […]
