The Rose Man

Here in Panajachel, Guatemala there is a man who buys a dozen roses from a vendor who has the best roses ever, and gives them away – one at a time – to the women of this town. Some think it’s scandalous since he’s a married man, but others (especially the women receiving the rose) think it’s sweet. Charming. Generous. Delightful.

Hooked on Adventure

At nineteen years of age, it was the trip of my lifetime. One of my very first travel adventures was in the early 70s when I went cross country as a passenger on a motorcycle. My parents were probably terrified for me, but my boyfriend was a good driver, gasoline was $0.29 a gallon, I had $400 in cash and a plastic coat. What could go wrong?

12 Tips on How to Make the Most of Feasting Internationally (and stay on a budget)

For those of us who enjoy international cuisine, eating local specialties while traveling is the best of two worlds. Meals don’t always have to be in fine dining establishments where pricing can be astronomical - you can relish terrific flavors from a food cart, on a picnic, or from the local supermarket.

Creating Happiness 100 Times Over Again

Recently I read an article about happiness and how we can increase its presence in our lives. The premise of the piece was that frequent, small pleasures increase our happiness level far more than one big pleasure. We adapt to a big pleasure until it becomes routine for us, so the new car we were so excited about when we purchased it, becomes mundane over time. The beautiful flooring and the exquisite bedroom set we just had to have all becomes ordinary as time passes.

Claim Your Freedom!

Billy and I have been traveling the globe for almost three decades. Within those international trips we have noticed that humans intrinsically desire to be free. For the most part you and I enjoy our freedoms. We have control over our finances, we can drive a car whenever we choose to do so, and if you are reading this, chances are you have a background of education and experience from having lived your life. But there are other ways we close ourselves off from freedom and with a little sense of adventure and a change of perspective, you can gain those freedoms back. Take a look at some suggestions below.
