Getting medicated and vaccinated

Posted on October 1st, 2013 by BreAnn

James and I had to get A LOT of vaccinations (shots) before we left the US so that we could stay safe and healthy on our travels to all these different countries around the world. It’s actually a bit insane just how many crazy vaccines we have circulating throughout our bodies at the moment: Hepatitis […]

Top five items every traveler should pack to stay healthy and happy on your next trip

Posted on June 24th, 2013 by BreAnn

Traveling over the past nine or so years both domestically and internationally has given me experience and perspective on what items I need most–and actually use–when I travel. No matter how short or long your trip is, there’s nothing worse than getting sick or not feeling your best, mentally and physically, while traveling… Or even […]

What’s in our bags?

Posted on March 11th, 2013 by BreAnn

Packing for an around-the-world trip takes a lot of research, thought, and planning. Many people—including us in the beginning—were curious and astonished about how LITTLE you can really bring with you. After all, you really don’t want to have to lug SO much stuff that you are tired, sore, hot, and miserable all the time. […]

Passion & Planning: To do lists

Posted on February 13th, 2013 by BreAnn

Over the past few months, people have often asked, “How do you even START setting up a RTW trip like this!?” One word: PLANNING. If you’re not a great planner or not very organized, I’m really not sure if it would be a great idea to even ATTEMPT an around-the-world trip.  Well, unless you want […]

Back to Bicycle Basics & Ode to my car!

Posted on February 15th, 2008 by BreAnn

I forgot how fun it is to ride a bike.  Does that sound stupid? I ride bikes at the gym. I only do this because it’s a better alternative to running for the stress on my knees.  I ride the bike at the gym to “slack off” . . . because if I ride too […]

One month…

Posted on January 27th, 2008 by BreAnn

As of yesterday, I will be on a plane to Spain in EXACTLY ONE MONTH!! I really can’t believe it’s sneaking up so fast. I’m starting to panick about getting everything packed, stored, sold, etc, in time!  I’ve been doing pretty good, though, with prepping for the big move… every day I’m organizing something, packing […]

Going through the motions. Is this for real??

Posted on January 2nd, 2008 by BreAnn

It’s weird when you are planning big things in your life like a move or a new job,,, or when you are graduating or starting a new chapter in your life.  You know what lies ahead, you plan, you go through all the motions, but it often DOESN’T quite seem 100% REAL until it actually […]

Bilingual Sonny

Posted on January 2nd, 2008 by BreAnn

I’ve been teaching Sonny some of his tricks in Spanish just for the fun of it, and it’s pretty surprising how quickly he has picked them up. It’s quite hilarious, actually. Sonny can now give “besos” (kisses) on command, can lay down when “abajo” is said, and will bark when I command, “Habla”.  Too funny. […]

Moving to Spain checklists

Posted on November 26th, 2007 by BreAnn

Moving, in general, is a big task. There are things to sort through, things to throw out or sell, things to pack up and move, utilities to set up, etc., the list is endless. Now, try moving to a foreign country. First, you have to obtain a Visa to be able to stay in a […]

Why I want to move to Spain

Posted on November 12th, 2007 by BreAnn

While most of the people I’ve spoken to about moving to Spain for a year have usually responded with positive feedback and excitement, after moments, hours, or days of thoughts my statement is often followed up with comments or quiet personal thoughts of, “But why?” or “Are you crazy?” or “Aren’t you a bit old to study […]
