In Pictures: Savannah, Georgia

As we made our way to the east coast during our epic Fabric of America road trip, we thought we'd swing through the historic city of Savannah, Georgia. Ang's sister was living there at the time, and we'd heard nice things about the town, so why the hell not? I'm big on pretty cities, and Savannah is supposed to be full of that Southern Charm, alongside some great walking and what is apparently...

In Pictures: Jerome, Arizona

During our Fabric of America tour, we stayed off the interstate for about 99% of the time, which allowed us to visit all sorts of places that most people miss. Besides not being bored to death by endless four-lane highways, we also got to see the 'real' America that's a bit less touched by all the things that sprout up along the aforementioned interstates. One of the cool towns we visited along...

Next Up: Back to Seville, Spain

Happy New Year! Time for another round of 365, time for a new place to live. Technically, we landed here in Seville, Spain, in December. Alas, a lot of holiday busy-ness and settling kept me away from writing, so it took me a few weeks to log back in and attack a new post. And with that, greetings from Seville! If you're a reader of this blog, it may feel vaguely familiar. That's because we...

Press: Features on Lonely Planet and Digital Nomad Hub (and more)!

One we knew about, one we didn't. Thanks to everyone. Lonely Planet: Our friend and brilliant travel writer, Tim Leffel, interviewed us for his feature about digital nomads who make a living while traveling the world. We were two of a handful of people profiled in this article. We're honored to be considered as examples for people, especially considering that most of the others in this article...

In Pictures: New Berlin, Texas

During our hunt for German-speaking communities in the Texas Hill Country on our "Fabric of America" tour, we spotted a town on the map called New Berlin. Considering our history, you know we just had to go there. We figured, if we couldn't find any German-speakers in Fredericksburg, Texas, maybe we could find some in New Berlin of all places? Even if there was only a .00001% chance that'd...

In Pictures: Fredericksburg, Texas

During our extensive "Fabric of America" road trip, one of the things we really wanted to do was explore Texas Hill Country, specifically the areas with a rich German tradition. Texas German is unfortunately fading out, but we figured we might be able to find some folks to talk with and experience some of the history in the area. The focal point of Texas German country is the town of...

In Pictures: Flagstaff, Arizona

We can't write about every place we go. It's impossible. Well, maybe not impossible, but quite a stretch. So, we now have our "In Pictures" series, which catalogs some of our memories from places we've been that we didn't write the full-blown, insanely wordy posts that we're known for. During our trip to the Grand Canyon on our "Fabric of America" tour, we stayed in the city of Flagstaff,...

Art Files: Shawnimals in Chicago, Illinois

Welcome to the art files! If you're not familiar, it's our little series in which we cover our love of the arts. We get a lot of it through our travels and our work, so here we are. Doesn't matter what it is: Could be street art, could be a museum, or it could be the multi-faceted world of Shawnimals. And such is today's piece. Read more

In Pictures: Little Colorado River Gorge, Arizona

During our trip to the Grand Canyon on our "Fabric of America" tour, we were able to spend some time checking out the Little Colorado River Gorge in the Navajo Nation, which lies just southeast of the aforementioned massive tourist destination. We didn't actually know we were going there, but we ended up driving through during our return to Flagstaff from the Grand Canyon. Stopping along the...

Hotel Review: Red Roof Inn in San Marcos, Texas

Hotel time! After driving across the Great American Southwest on our "Fabric of America" road trip, we stopped in south-central Texas for several days to hang out and see the sights in Texas German country. We also wanted to relax for a few days, check out San Antonio, and see whatever else we'd stumble across. We needed a base for this, and found some strategically-located digs in the city of...
