Monterey to Big Sur. A California Highway 1 Itinerary

Monterey to Big Sur: A Highway 1 Itinerary

Cliffs that drop straight into the deep blue ocean. Vistas that quite literally take your breath away. Bridges careening over deep canyons. Waterfalls. Seals. Crowds of people. Empty Forests. None of these things have much in common. Whales and squirrels? Crowds of people and empty forests? But along the Pacific Coast highway they do. All of […]

Cost of Travel in Central America

Central America Travel Budget

  A few months ago, I broke down our budget for three months of travel in Central America. I kept track of everything on this three month journey and found it really helpful to see where all of our money went at the end of the trip. I have been playing around with info-graphics lately, […]

Korean Makgeolli Festival

Almond Flour Sweet Potato Fries

Chris and I currently live in a tiny apartment just outside of Seoul, South Korea. I, surprisingly, love the place; cute and functional with a great view. It has everything we need…almost. We have no oven! Thankfully I am not a baker and I do most of my cooking on the stove, but still, what […]

Coconut cream Date Bars are a healthy and delicious treat for any day of the year

Coconut Cream Date Bars

  Coconuts are amazing! They are so dang versatile! You can eat the flesh, make milk from them, drink the water and do countless other things with these amazing nuts. All throughout Central America coconuts were everywhere, particularly In Belize. We cracked a few open ourselves, wore them as hats, and ate a lot of […]
