The Best Cafe in Lisbon – Cafe da Garagem

It really is the best cafe in Lisbon. We figured this out as soon as we stepped inside. The place is relaxed, well-decorated and offers comfy chairs perfectly positioned in front of huge windows overlooking the city below. There’s a great balcony with tables, too. I think the view from this cafe is one of the best views of the city by far. The food and drink here are excellent and cheap. We enjoyed coffee followed by a bottle of…

Visiting the Golden Bridge in Vietnam – the bridge held by giant hands in the mountains

If you follow any travel-related news sites you’ve probably seen a photo of a bridge held by giant hands in the mountains. This is the Golden Bridge at Ba Na Hills, near Da Nang in Vietnam.

Wrap Up: Great Loop 2018 Cruising Season – Florida’s ICW

With our arrival to Jacksonville, we consider this 2018 Great Loop cruising season to be a wrap. When we set off from Miami in April, we had intentions of making it to the Chesapeake by summer to escape hurricane season. But fatigue from the months prior building up from Hurricane Irma, the submerged channel marker incident and a rapid RV trip to Texas caught up with us. When we got to Ft. Pierce for a month long stay and took on a remodeling project that drug on – we knew getting that far north was just not in the …

A select few people in the world have the luxury of traveling wherever they want, working remotely, and living in the top 1% of the world.

Kunming, China in 4 Steps & Why You Need To Know About This Important City

The only reason I had heard of Kunming was thanks to one of my oldest friends. She and her husband adopted their daughter from Kunming years ago, and for some reason it’s a name I never forgot. So, when Cathay Pacific and I started working on what spots in China we should highlight, that’s immediately what came to mind. After a little research, I was definitely intrigued and a project was created. I’m working with Cathay Pacific to bring …

My latest trip to Da Nang marked a flippening of sorts in my Da Nang / Hoi An travels. Usually I have come to Da Nang on the way to Hoi An (Da Nang being the airport city for Hoi An). I noted in my 2017 trip report how Da Nang is becoming a destination in itself, and escaping from the shadow of Hoi An. This was the first time I went to Da Nang …

So.. we untied from the ball and continued our northward cruise.

An Unfortunate Spinal Tap Update: Leaking Again

After nine months of working so hard to stay sealed, and marking incredible progress with you along the way, I have releaked. When working on getting sealed, I explained here and on social media that the stakes were quite high, as a wrong move could re open the CSF leak that took so many patches to seal. For many, the body can withstand the uncertainties of daily movement as the dura slowly heals. For others, the connective tissue is weaker …

Yom Kippur Spiritual Meaning and Rituals

Yom Kippur In our search for the understanding of non-attachment and change, we will turn to Judaism’s holiest day, Yom Kippur (Hebrew ??? ?????), also known as the Sabbath of Sabbaths.
