Six Month Reflection

It’s almost impossible to believe that today marks six full months of travel. If you had told me this time last year that I would be in Bulgaria, having been on the road for 26 weeks, been through 15 countries, seen countless incredible sights, made so many wonderful friends, and managed to add seven more […]

DOG RESCUE: Gabrova

As most of our followers already know, we were only a few days free of Kova before our second rescue dog entered the picture. Upon arriving in Bulgaria and meeting our hostess Dee, it quickly became clear that we had one major thing in common: animals. Specifically, animal rescue. Less than a week after we […]

Happy New Year

I know I’m late and that I’ve been absent for a few weeks. Suffice to say, when I can’t get my happy pills, just waking up in the morning and dealing with my dogs tends to be all I can handle in a day. That and the fact that my thoughts always turn rather morose […]

Pet Food

I feel like I’ve found a home here in Bulgaria, after only 24 hours. Our hostess, Dee, is basically me in 20 more years… she also has six dogs, countless cats, and she moved to Bulgaria so she could have horses again. Her lifestyle is simple and uncomplicated and revolves around her son and her […]

Country 15

Short post. We have made it safely to Bulgaria, our 15th country of the trip! The border crossing from Serbia to here was the easiest we’ve encountered so far, mostly just a smile and wave after stamping our passports. Our hosts are lovely, a British lady and her young son who are living the dream […]

Kova’s New Family

It’s a weekend of BiH goodbyes it seems; first to Kupres yesterday, and today to our Bosnian rescue dog, Kova. Goodbyes of all kinds are an unavoidable part of travelling, but that doesn’t make them any easier. Kova’s new family are Jo and Austin and their cat Ruma. They’re a young American military family stationed […]

Goodbye Kupres

Today will be a short post because I’m so exhausted I can barely keep my eyes open. We said goodbye to Kupres today, a few days sooner then planned due to incoming weather and the need to clean up our cabin for guests. It was a bittersweet goodbye, as Mate and Marko and the girls […]

LOOKING BACK: When the Heart Breaks Again

The above photo has gotten the more traffic on Facebook and Instagram then any other post I’ve made.  It was taken on 16 October 2018, in Flachau, Austria.  For the viewers, its probably because it captures the essence of what travelling in a minuscule caravan with too many animals actually looks like.  For me, the […]

DOG RESCUE: Kova

It’s probably unsurprising that animals not my own feature fairly prominently along my travel journey.  What is surprising is that it took me over three months in to the trip to add another member to the menagerie, especially after we lost Sami and, as Travis liked to remind me on a regular basis, our numbers […]

A Late Beginning

Well, what can I say.  Surely I’m a prime example of what happens when good intensions meet superior procrastination.  We’re 120 days in to this trip and I’m only just now getting around to actually starting this blog.  I’d like to have thousands of wonderfully exciting reasons and activities that have kept me too busy […]
