Our Recent Travels
Or Rather - Random Travel Tales

Keeping up with with our recent travels is an adventure all by itself for us.


We decided to put this page up so all of our friends and readers can keep up with what we've been doing...

...and so you'll know why sometimes we haven't written anything new about our travel or tips for days or weeks!

But we changed the page focus from keeping up with our travels to random travel tales. 


It was too hard for us to really post good travel pages in a timely fashion, but there are sometimes quick, funny travel tales that we think you'd enjoy.

Fun Little Stories - Please Share Yours Too

So OK... we have a few random travel tales below. They are stories that don't really deserve a page of their own, but they were just fun to share with you.  Things that happened on trips that made us giggle, or little landmarks in our travel experience.

Jump straight down to the box if you're ready to submit or comment.

Our amusing little travel stories are listed below the invitation.  If you don't yet want to add a little story of your own, feel free to comment on ours.


Why We Don't Often Write On The Road

Wifi in Australia with a glass of Shiraz!

It's getting easier all the time to find internet connections on the road...

...But truthfully, when you're traveling and having fun, it's not always easy to break away and write about it.

Some trips it just isn't convenient to take a computer along.

We left it home when we went to Madagascar.

We took it to Dubai, but didn't take the time to use it much.

We did use it a little on our Australian wine tasting adventure.

J-3 Cub provides shade for wifi writing


In Oshkosh, Wisconsin attending the EAA AirVenture 2009, we had wifi and free time to tell you about it.

Don't know about Oskhosh?

We sat under the wing of my sister's little Piper J-3 Cub and wrote about the Cub to Oshkosh flight.
