So it’s been a while since I posted anything to this blog. That’s totally on me, and something I told myself I wouldn’t do again – take huge long breaks between posts. Seems it’s hard to get into the habit of writing about travels, and then keep it up when you’re not actually travelling. True,… Read More


One of the main reasons we stayed in Bangor, Maine this past fall was the town’s proximity to Acadia National Park just a short drive away. As a national park junkie, Acadia represents the north-eastern most pilgrimage along a rocky coastline of pointed firs and lighthouses. For me personally, Acadia has stood as an elusive,… Read More


The decision to spend September and October in Maine was an easy one. Visions of autumn leaves and pumpkin patches danced in my head along with dreams of hayrides, corn mazes and apple orchards.

There is a little place, nestled a few miles off the highway in the coastal region of New Hampshire, that became very dear to us over our summer and fall in New England. From my very first visit to Applecrest Farms in 2013, I was hooked. Years later, I was so pleased to have the… Read More

So it seems I’ve been kind of lucky with the leak issues in my RV. Mostly, they’re not rain water coming inside (although there is one of those, but that’s a bigger post for another time). So far, a lot of the dripping has been related to something in the bathroom going bad. I’ve already… Read More


After a rollercoaster of a year travelling the north eastern US and even up into Nova Scotia, we have returned south for the winter! We’re not quite at the annual snowbird level just yet, but for lots of reasons a return to Houston just seems to make some good sense for now. On the way… Read More


Living in Houston for your entire life, there are many things you are taught you need: a big car, a long commute, a mansion in Katy with tons of furniture to fill it. But all of these material things are not truly necessary for life, save one: the almighty air conditioning. Every good Texan knows that… Read More
