Burning Man 2018 : Homecoming

Posted by Ted on Sep 10, 2018 in Burning Man

It [wasn’t] the best of times,
it [wasn’t] the worst of times,
it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness,
it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity,
it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness,
it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair,
we had everything before us

As the last of the block ice from Camp Arctica was melting, we began the sorting and washing of our playafied clothes. A week later it’s just about done, and the RV is recovering in … [Read more]

The Three Keys to Successful Couples Travel

Posted by Ted on Dec 31, 2012 in Philosophy, Travel, Vagabonding

We wondered if we’d all kill each other. Instead we had a ball.

Those words of wisdom were from Brenna Redpath, one of a growing number of Vagabonding Case Studies that I’ve been curating. She and her family of four spent fourteen months traveling across much of Europe and parts of Morocco and Peru.

Photo Friday: Kitty in the Kava Bowl

Posted by Ted on May 18, 2012 in Photography, Travel

What some may not realize is that Fiji is not an island, but an archipelago of over 300 islands. We chose the third largest, Taveuni, so that we might dive the Great White Wall.

Of the two places we stayed at, the first was by far the best. Coconut Grove was easy, beautiful, and made us feel at home. The toasted coconut bread in the morning certainly didn’t hurt.
