Soaking in the Socca – Slovenia

September 2, 2019

Our morning started off pretty slow as the night was so long.  We went to bed at 8p, but woke up at 11p and were not able to get back to sleep until 3a.  I think the time change is impacting us a little or it may have been that rather large rock in the […]

Slovenia – Vršič Pass

September 1, 2019

In the morning we were treated to a massive hotel buffet style breakfast.  There were numerous things we had to try.  My only rule was anything you pick up you will finish.  After breakfast we went up the Visic Pass to try out our first via ferratta (because a climb using steel cables).  My handheld […]

Slovenia – Lake Bled / Vintgar Gorge

August 31, 2019

Landing at 12:30p in Slovenia we hit the ground running.  We picked up a rental car, which has been allot of enjoyment for Elijah.  It is quite small by our standards.  Still the driver’s seat sits very low in the car, so I can just barely look over the dash.  It is also a stick […]

Slovenia Bound

August 28, 2019

Staring over a 75 foot cliff, holding my two year old son in my arms, I still remember his words to me. “Me do that!”  There was no fear, only eager anticipation to participate in the new adventure before him.  Eight years later things are no different.  Now Elijah is ten and he is still […]

Live Like That – Kerosene Creek & Cathedral Cove, New Zealand

April 5, 2017

As we were leaving the Rotorua Canopy Tours, Gary (a native of Rotorua) gave us some local ideas on things we may enjoy. He gave us a local glow worm spot and the location of a thermal heated creek that we could soak in. We tried the glow worm spot first and it turned out […]

Ready…Set..Zip – Rotorua, New Zealand

March 31, 2017

We have always called Sydney, our zip line girl. From the time she could speak she would beg to take her turn on any zip line I set up or we happened to be near. When traveling once, we found ourselves at a camp in South Carolina. Sydney was around four years old and there […]

Hairy Feet – Hobbit Town, New Zealand

March 30, 2017

            The big day was upon us! Sydney was so excited that her smile wrapped all the way around her head. We were one of the first people on-site and we had signed up for the first tour of the day. If you ever go, be on the first bus. […]

Time For Tea – Zealong Tea Tour, New Zealand

March 29, 2017

We left our hotel at 5:45a this morning to fly to the North Island. Landing in Auckland, I was not really looking forward to driving through a major city. It turned out to not be a big deal. The airport is on the south side of Auckland and with two turns we were headed out […]

Write Your Story – Queenstown Hill, New Zealand

March 28, 2017

We spent the night south of Queenstown at the abandoned Fairlight Railway Station (the one campsite we have seen twice). In the morning we took our time getting ready and having our bible time. It was nice to have a relaxing morning with no major driving needed to get to the next thing. We made […]

Into the Beautiful – Clifden Cave, New Zealand

March 27, 2017

We have been “Freedom Camping” this whole trip, which means we have been tent camping in legal areas around the country. The areas are far apart and usually off the beaten path. Leaving Milford Sound around 6p and then getting caught in the traffic jam, I knew we would be getting into camp late. Driving […]
