How Airbnb will change the way you travel

by Larissa on November 22, 2014

Michael and I have been on the road for over three years now with no fixed address, yet people still ask us where we call home. We finally have a good answer: we live at Airbnb. We thought it would be useful to explain how Airbnb works. We don’t work for them, nor do we live […]

Hidden remnants of the Cold War in Berlin

I was strolling along Bernauer Strasse during a foggy night typical of Berlin. The low-lying mist shrouded the streetlamps, casting sepia shadows on the neighborhood. The hues were reminiscent of old newsreels from August, 1963, when this street became a last gasp escape route for those seeking to flee over the Berlin Wall, a structure […]

Local Hero: Meeting a D-Day veteran

by Michael on November 11, 2014

Odd America: Visiting Carhenge in Nebraska

by Michael on October 31, 2014

We’ve taken road trips all over the world but still love driving around America the most due to the wide variety of unusual roadside attractions in the United States.
