After having a hard time finding a solid, affordable place in Singapore, we turned to Airbnb and it was an awesome experience. Since then, we’ve stayed in Airbnbs many times, some stays have been great, others not so much.

Over the years, I’ve come across various interesting and bizarre Airbnbs like a 6 ton potato, a vintage custom vanigloos, tents and more. Continue reading This Pizza Themed Airbnb Comes With… A Slice Of Pizza!

Appalachian Trail: TN-NC State Line

Last week our little man Lucas turned 8 years-old!

No, that isn’t a typo, before turning 8, Lucas made it past 60 countries. Yes, Lucas is a true world traveler! Continue reading Happy B-Day World Traveler Lucas- 8 Years-Old, 64 Countries Visited!
