Dog Days of Summer

Dog Days of Summer

Sorry it’s taken me so long to publish this blog post. It’s totally my mom’s fault. I’ve been bugging her for weeks, but she’s been too busy working on her TEFL certificate to help proofread my work. Lucky for me, though, she just turned in her last assignment – so I guess I can withdraw my classified ad for a more reliable editor and we can finally go back to things being all about me again. But I digress… Because…

Sanchez Does Sanibel

Sanchez Does Sanibel

I know my mom already typed up a pretty nice report about the Gulf Coast’s renowned shelling destination – Sanibel, FL – but I figured I’d offer a dog’s perspective on the small barrier island.

And now that we’re a family of three, it’s time for mom and dad to…

Our Happy Tail

Our Happy Tail

Well, here we are… now just over two months removed from our unbelievable year on the road (gosh, it feels like just yesterday we were packing our bags to leave). Rather than wistfully typing from the stiff seat of a bus negotiating a rutted-out road through central Laos, or the reclining armchair of a 737 soaring sleekly above Australia’s eastern seaboard, I am instead clicking away from the tufted, slate gray cushion of my brand-new sectional sofa (does anyone else…

Elephant Nature Park: Part II

Elephant Nature Park: Part II

Stephan and I excitedly dedicated a week of our Thailand adventure to volunteering at Elephant Nature Park. While I anticipated a really unique and special experience, I was completely unprepared for the emotional journey I was about to be embarking on… We departed Chiang Mai early Monday morning, and headed about an hour and a half north with a handful of other volunteers to the remote, forested, hillside sanctuary. As we neared the park, we noticed dozens of trees with…
