I used to think writing Bucket Lists was easy, but lately we’ve really become serious about the criteria required for an item to be placed on THE LIST. It becomes particularly interesting when you’re in a foreign land with so much to see, so much to do and at the same time you’re star-struck by all […]

Just before completing the impressive 2,168.1 miles that make up the Appalachian Trail, hikers are faced with one final ascent.

Steeped in scenic beauty, Martha’s Vineyard attracts wide-eyed day-trippers, celebrity second-home owners and burnt out city slickers seeking a restful getaway… and then there’s us. Determined to bike “Up- Island,” we boarded the 8am ferry (tickets and times here) and headed towards this incredible little piece of the world. When we got off the ship we were pleasantly […]

9 Things We’ve Learned After 100 Days On The Road

WOW. 100 days. I can still remember week 1, kicking it in The Keys, trying to figure out how to cook in a 4-foot space, how to turn over in the middle of the night without whacking my head on a handle or the roof and how to communicate with each other in a way that makes room for both our needs and wants... I still hit my head every night. Nevertheless, here are the things we've learned

WOW. 100 days. 18 states. 2 countries and now we’re in Canada! I can still remember week 1, kicking it in The Keys, trying to figure out how to cook in a 4-foot space, how to turn over in the middle of the night without whacking my head on a handle or the roof and how to communicate with each […]

Once we finally had the chance to regroup after returning from Iceland, we were juggling a few different options for where to go next. After not much contemplation, we made the bold decision to turnaround and follow our hearts all the way back to New York City. Turnaround?! Now generally we don’t tend to backtrack, but […]

Our first day in Boston was a perfectly crisp and clear Massachusetts day. We biked along the Esplanade, sipped on an incredible cappuccino at The Thinking Cup on Newbury Street (go there), watched as they constructed the Boston Marathon finish line, and saw the famous Keytar Bear playing in The Common. Needless to say it was a pretty […]

Stunning right? Words can’t even begin to describe the jaw-dropping, thought-stunting experience that is the Northern Lights.

Iceland, home to an endless array of natural beauty, notoriously unpredictable weather patterns and some of the most outlandishly decadent dining experiences in the world. After living in our Kuku Camper for 2 weeks, we decided it was time to treat ourselves with 2 days of living like a local in the incredible city of Reykjavik. It was our […]

After enduring a 5-hour red-eye, we landed in Reykjavic at 4am (midnight in the US), only to wait 5 more hours until the arrival of our scheduled pick up with Kuku Campers. As noted in our previous post, business hours in Iceland start a bit later and end a bit earlier, perhaps the reason why there are no Starbucks or […]

Partially because we’re crazy, but mostly because it’s something we crave. For the past year Drew and I have been itching for a geographical challenge. Luckily our jobs and careers have worked out so that we were able to dissolve old projects and ignite new ones that will thrive with us being location independent. There are so many […]
