Happy Six-Month Travel-versary to us!

Six months ago, Eaman and I were sitting in JFK airport, waiting for this year of fun and adventure to begin. Since then, we’ve gone to six countries in South and Central America and done a whole lot that I’ve already shared and re-shared with you.

…And then I had to fly home unexpectedly.

My lack of Hawaii postings certainly isn’t reflective of the frequency I had in mind, but things happen. Such is life.

Trip preparation: Just over a week to go!

The trip is eight days away. Wheeeeeeeeeeee! But to be honest, it hasn’t hit me at all. I just feel like I’m visiting my parents for a bit, going on a short vacation to Peru and then returning to “normal” life in the States. I truly don’t think any of this will hit me until … Continue reading »

My one vanity on the road: curly hair

I’m more than ready to leave behind the excess and embrace the low maintenance, but I must admit, there’s one thing I’m feeling a bit vain about, and it’s my curly hair. (I’m taking four T-shirts, a couple pairs of shorts and a dress as the majority of my year-long wardrobe; I think I’m allowed … Continue reading »

Traveling with an iPad: The (big) downside

My laundry list of to-do’s for the less than two weeks I have at home ranges from the fun (Target shopping: yay!) to the tiring (laborious Rosetta Stone Spanish lessons) to the downright frustrating, including getting our iPad RTW travel-ready. We had debated between getting a netbook and an iPad, but ultimately went with the … Continue reading »
