At Home In The World

The Last Hurrah Tour


When we travel, we like to feel at
home in whatever place we may
land.  When we can, we rent apartments
instead of hotel rooms so we can go
to the local markets and cook the
foods the locals eat.  In a practical
sense this also saves a lot of money.
And that is the message we want
to give about our method of travel.
This is a possibility for normal, everyday
people.  We hear all the time, I'd love
to go to _____ someday if I ever had the
money.  That is part of the experience,
we save our money so we can travel.
We don't live in a McMansion, our kids
don't have expensive cell phones, they have
phones that get the job done, we almost
never go to the mall.  We find getting
to know the people in the places we
visit have been the most rewarding
experiences we have had.  I think
roaming the aisles of a foreign grocery
store can be as fascinating as visiting
the greatest museums.  Some of our most
memorable meals have been a baguette,
some cheese, a bottle of wine and a great view.
So here is a peak at some of the places we
will be calling home in the next few weeks.
They are all quite different but we will fill them
with flowers and candles and laughter
~ just like home...

Chiang Mai, Thailand





The boat will take us down the

The adventure begins on Sunday,
