We have experienced a variety of weather conditions over the last couple of weeks. Some of which resulted in some pretty weird colours at sunset, as seen above. There was also a bit of celestial excitement recently when a meteor shower was supposed to be visible all around the world. I did my research and set up to capture some images of these lights passing through the sky. Well, I apparently was set up in the wrong direction. However it did provide the chance to put together a time lapse of the night sky. I am pretty happy with this first attempt at celestial photography even if I didn’t get what I was initially planning on.


I addition to keeping up on the yard work I keep an eye out for interesting photo ops around the property.

This is one of the three kingfishers we see nearly every day. They are good enough to pose on the power line on occasion.
This little fellow wanted to get a closer look at what I was doing on the computer.
Pumpkin Crop
I mentioned yard work earlier. Part of that is helping cultivate our crop of pumpkins. It is incredible the speed at which everything grows here. We are also enjoying oranges, pineapple, and limes currently in addition to the non-stop supply of papaya and bananas.
Kitchen Gecho
We have a variety of different sized geckos creeping around the house. This one was reviewing our shopping receipt.
Wayan checking things out
It is easy to find Wayan. He never strays far from Karen.
Christmas Dogs
For pure entertainment I highly recommend trying to get a festive photo of three excited hounds and a string of garland. This is as good as it got.


Welcome to our travel blog. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to say, "I'm out of here?" Well we did, and in 2013 we made it a reality. We sold or gave away all of our possessions other than what fit in our luggage and we set off on an endless adventure. Part of our goal is to share our experiences with others and hopefully provide some information, motivation, or just a moments escape. The general idea was to look for a place that would be ideal to settle down in. However in the meantime it is about experiencing life in different countries amongst different cultures and learning how to understand and appreciate each other. A large part of our time is spent housesitting which provides an excellent opportunity to experience more of the "normal" neighbourhoods as opposed to the tourist locales. Though we make sure to enjoy those as well. So through plenty of photographs and a running commentary come and share with us our life on the road.
