Photo Contest: Capture the Colour

There’s a new photo contest going on and I was ‘tagged’ by my friend Wes (aka Johnny Vagabond). Sponsored by TravelSupermarket.com, there are some great prizes (iPads!) and the contest is being judged by some amazing photographers/bloggers. The rules are pretty simple: post photos on your blog that fit the following themes: Red, Blue, White, Green and Yellow. Share your post via social media (see the rules below for details) and nominate five other bloggers to join in the fun. ...

Well We're Leavin' on a Jet Plane…

We’ve been so busy over the last few months that I don’t think I’ve had the chance for all of this to sink in yet. Living in a ‘foreign’ country for a few months really isn’t that earth-shattering. Millions have done it before, and millions will do it in the future. I try to look at it that way. However, if you add the fact that we will continue to do this for the foreseeable future, with only occasional trips back home, our adventure becomes much more unusual! ...

One More Week Until Mexico

What would you do if you had only one week left in the country you were born and raised in? I know what we’re going to do – work! Looks like we’ll be able to fit our stuff into our Rick Steves carry-on bags, but there are a lot of little leftover pieces and parts. So today is eBay day! We plan on heading to Denton on Friday. Glenn will be seeing some old co-workers for the first time in a long time, and we are trying to work in a few other people as well. ...

Bryn, how did you, the shy, follow-along, go-with-the-flow girl end up in the wacky place in life you are in now? A bit, uh, risky, isn’t it? Well, Oprah, dear, it’s like this… (I can dream, can’t I? LOL) All my life I have just zinged along, doing what was expected of me by people around me, by the societal circle I was dancing in, never really questioning anything, taking the collective word for most things – fa-la-la! ...

Glenn 2.0 -- 2011 in Review

Early in 2010 I looked ahead to my 50th birthday and tried to come up with something appropriate for the end of my first half-century of life. That’s a pretty big milestone, and I wanted to celebrate in a big way. At one point I wanted to go to a big music festival somewhere in South America, but was unable to line one up with my birthday. And by the time we finally decided on the day we would quit our jobs, I was unwilling to spend the money for the flights. ...
