By Megan Stetzel | September 30, 2018

Steph and I have talked about writing this post since Trump got into office and this Kavanaugh circus is making me extra terrified for November and it has finally motivated me to put this together.

We Really Live Here! Italy Update #2

By Steph | December 26, 2017

Hey guys! When I last left you in November we were still sleeping off jet lag and desperately apartment hunting (have I mentioned how much I hate apartment hunting? It’s definitely my least favorite part of any big move). A lot has changed since then, mostly for the better! We Finally Found a Home Finding […]

By Steph | November 13, 2017

Ciao! When I last left you we were in the terminal stages  of preparing for our family move to Italy. Well… we made it! All four of us are now in Bologna, where it is currently raining heavily. To be honest, not that much has happened yet, but I didn’t want to leave you hanging […]

By Steph | October 25, 2017

Back in August I wrote about the many preparations we were taking to move abroad at the end of October. Well the end of October is here! It’s hard to believe but we leave for Bologna in just three days. This means we’ve been super busy lately getting ready for the move. Getting the Dog’s […]

Travel is such a gift in that it opens your eyes up to just how special and beautiful our planet is.

Expat Life: 5 Common Expat Mistakes to Avoid

By Steph | October 11, 2017

I’ve lived abroad several times, and each time I’ve enjoyed the experience but in the end I left feeling somewhat unsatisfied. I always feel like I could have done, seen and experienced more with my expat life. I’ve spent long stints living in London, Xi’an, Buenos Aires and Sayulita, Mexico but I’ve never really felt […]

Being A Digital Nomad vs. Being Location Independent

By Steph | August 30, 2017

This post is about more than terminology I swear. Hang around travel blogs for a while and you will start to see certain words bandied around quite a bit. “Digital Nomad” and “Location Independent” are two phrases you will see, often interchangeably. But they are actually two different things. I was reminded of this when […]

Can You Travel with a Baby? An Honest Review

By Steph | August 16, 2017

It’s almost impossible for me to believe that my baby turned 1 last week. It seems like just yesterday I was super pregnant and writing my kiss off maternity leave post. Then Marcella came crashing into my life and things have never been totally the same. Before I gave birth, I had a lot of […]

By Guest Poster | August 14, 2017

So…you know you’re…umm…a bit younger than the typical demographic, right? That’s my 60-something mom speaking, giving me a gentle warning over Facetime that my husband and I quite possibly just signed up for an 11-day float down the lower Danube with a boatful of octogenarians.
