By Heidi | February 12, 2012

George and I finally read “The 4-Hour Workweek” by Timothy Ferris and highly recommend it to those looking to make a change in their lives. We read the expanded 2009 edition for Kindle after noticing the book while browsing through the bookstore and thinking, “that’s the book so many bloggers were inspired by, we should […]

Review of Eggs ‘n Things in Waikiki

By Heidi | November 11, 2011

11/11/11 This evening we wanted to celebrate 11/11/11, so we decided to go out to dinner.  We had been wanting to try Eggs ‘n Things (located at 343 Saratoga Road) for a while, so we finally gave it a shot.  I went in without expectations and was pleasantly surprised.  It turned out that we both […]

By Heidi | October 30, 2011

October 9, 2011 and October 30, 2011 We knew that once we moved to Honolulu, one of our big expenses was going to be food.  I had read that food here costs two to three times as much as on the mainland.  I had also found some tips on how to save money on food.  […]

Klagenfurt to Frankfurt Am Main

By Joji | October 5, 2010

We took an 8:50 AM flight from Klagenfurt to Frankfurt Hahn (HHN) on Ryanair (an airline that we dislike from previous terrible service, however, this time they were efficient and we even arrived early).  Frankfurt Hahn Airport (HHN) is not in Frankfurt at all, but over 100 km from Frankfurt! Luckily, there is a regular […]

By Joji | September 19, 2010

Bus from Ljubljana to Bled

By Joji | September 13, 2010

We opted for the bus to Bled instead of the train since the bus will drop you off at the bus station right in the heart of the town of Bled.  If you take the train it will drop you off at Lesce-Bled Station which is about 4km from Bled.  Then you would have to […]

Train from Split to Ljubljana

By Joji | September 11, 2010

We purchased our train tickets for Split, Croatia to Ljublijana, Slovenia directly from the train ticket office in Split.  We chose the train over the bus for two reasons:  1) The price of the train tickets were 255 KN/person vs. 355 KN/person for the bus, and  2) The bus left at 6:00 PM and would […]
