New York, New York; Day 3

Yesterday was our downtown day. Today was our Central Park day and was another 8 miles of walking. We didn’t awaken at 4:30a as we had on Thursday morning but we were still up early as our European body clock timings dissipate slowly. We are staying a few blocks off of the park so weContinue reading “New York, New York; Day 3”

Hurghada, Egypt; Day 6

Today’s big excitement was Covid tests for travel as we prepare to depart Egypt on Thursday. We’re getting pretty used to it at this point. The kids were very happy that their sample was from the mouth rather than a nasal swab…Mom and Dad, not so lucky. As most kids do, these three LOVE treats.Continue reading “Hurghada, Egypt; Day 6”

Dubai, UAE; Day 3

We didn’t waste any time getting ourselves to the tallest building in the world – the Burj Khalifa. We needed to do some shopping. We carry about a week’s worth of clothes in our backpacks. After wearing and washing them over and over for the last 35 weeks or so, some are starting to getContinue reading “Dubai, UAE; Day 3”

Diani Beach, Kenya; Day 1

It’s been 50 days since the 5 Adventurers left Phuket, Thailand so it seems about time that we got back to a beach. We’re still on the Indian Ocean but this time on the western side in Diani Beach. Often tagged as the best beach in Africa and one of the top beaches in theContinue reading “Diani Beach, Kenya; Day 1”

Bangkok, Thailand; Day 5

Today started with some life maintenance activities. Everyone’s favorite – dental cleanings!! Hard to believe we’ve been traveling for over 7 months and we’re due for another cleaning. Actually we’re a tad early, but we decided getting them done in Bangkok would be easier than where we’ll be traveling in the next couple of months.Continue reading “Bangkok, Thailand; Day 5”

Chiang Mai, Thailand; Day 14

Today was CreeperKitty’s birthday party! His actual birthday is not until tomorrow but we had an all day adventure planned so decided to celebrate today. We’d tried to convince him it was going to be a pretty lame birthday and he believed us since he’s seen no evidence of shopping or presents. It felt aContinue reading “Chiang Mai, Thailand; Day 14”

Phuket, Thailand; Day 10

We were looking forward to visiting the market at Nai Yang Beach which is held on Saturday afternoon but were fearful that a rain storm might put a damper on the shopping. Fortunately the rains held off and we were able to sort through a wide variety of items for sale. Tiffany was right toContinue reading “Phuket, Thailand; Day 10”

Phuket, Thailand; Day 6

Thailand requires 3 Covid-19 tests for travelers visiting from the United States. One before you board the plane in the US, one when you arrive in Thailand and the third on your 6-7th day in the country. The third test is an antigen rapid test we did ourselves – our first time doing one likeContinue reading “Phuket, Thailand; Day 6”

Leesburg, Ohio; Day 14

Today was an Adventure in waiting that finally got us a big step forward. What are we waiting for? – COVID-19 vaccine shots for the kids so they could be protected and we could better manage travel requirements. First we waited for months for the vaccine to be tested and approved, that waiting ended TuesdayContinue reading “Leesburg, Ohio; Day 14”
