I’m not sure why I keep getting sucked up into these time warps. As each day passes, I am one day older… and one day further from my last blog post. [If you have a solution to keep me on top of this, let me know!] It’s not like so many cool things [...]

When I was 16, my Aunt Becky (30 at the time) told me, “As you get older, life goes by faster.” I thought she was crazy. But now, older and wiser, I know she was speaking the truth. I don’t know what laws of the universe are at play, but I feel like I blinked [...]

Coffee and Enlightenment, Please

I found myself getting a little annoyed. Okay, more than a little. I could blame it on my lack of coffee, or my lack of enlightenment, but aren't we all entitled to get frustrated every now and then? The flight attendants serving the complimentary beverages on Flight 2051 from Zurich to Budapest were not moving [...]

Did you catch Will and me on HGTV’s House Hunters International this week? It was awesome! If you’re lucky enough to be with one of the TV providers listed here, you can catch the replay. If not, the episode is airing again next month. This week I’m in Stara Moravica, Serbia, as we wrap up [...]

Sai, a member of our PitchRate community, recently sent me this story his grandfather told him about Saint Narada and Lord Vishnu, the God of creation in Hinduism: Saint Narada prided himself on being Lord Vishnu’s most devoted follower. One day, Narada found the Lord praising a farmer for his own devotion. Outraged, Narada asked [...]

Am I crazy? I ask myself this question a lot and I keep getting the same answer… but I’ll let you decide. Here I am, sitting in a youth hostel in the middle of Serbia. What exactly is a youth hostel doing in a small Serbian farming village, you might ask? Fazekas Róbert, the town’s [...]

I had no clue what the Serbian reporter was asking me. Thank goodness Oscar was there to translate the conversation. I met Oscar earlier this spring on CouchSurfing.com when we couldn't find a pet-friendly place to stay in Serbia. While we weren't exactly in the market for a couch to sleep on, I thought the [...]

Before I started writing my first book (available now!), I’d heard people say that writing a book is similar to giving birth. I thought, really? Isn't that a little over dramatic? Obviously due to a natural barrier, I haven’t given birth. (Not that I wouldn't have wanted the experience, but life is life.) But now [...]
