By Heidi | March 23, 2010

On March 20th we headed to the main (Majestic) bus station in Bangalore to catch our bus to Gokarna.  We left Sumanjayan Homestay a little past 7pm and hired an auto rickshaw and reached the bus station around 8pm, in plenty of time for our 9pm bus.  When the rickshaw stopped we didn’t realize at […]

Flight from SFO to Bengaluru, India via Singapore

By Heidi | March 18, 2010

We flew Singapore Airlines from SFO to Bengaluru.  We were happy with the good service and nice airplane, but it was still a long trip!  After flying with Singapore Airlines, it will be hard to go back to United.  Right from checked-in, the employees were pleasant and helpful.  The meals on the flight were good, […]

By Heidi | March 18, 2010

Most of our belongings have been in storage since we sold our condo in West Sacramento in June of 2008. We had expected to be settled by now, but when we realized it would still be a while before we would move into an apartment we decided to move our belongings into a smaller storage […]

How to Pack Light: Develop a Packing List

By Heidi | March 14, 2010

The main lesson I learned from our 7 month journey was to pack light! The less you have, the more freedom you have to go where you want to and to do whatever you would like. On our 2008-2009 adventure my mind set was that we had already packed most of our belongings into a […]

By Heidi | August 17, 2009

June 30, 2009: When we arrived in Madrid that evening we were exhausted, after an early start and two bus rides that day, and it was hot!  From the transportation hub where we were dropped off we managed to get directions to take the subway to the area that our hotel was in.  Down the […]

Morocco Day 2 – Asilah

By Heidi | August 12, 2009

June 29, 2009: Our hotel concierge told us, “You don’t see Morocco unless you visit a city outside of Tanger!”  We took that as a challenge and visited the beautiful and quaint seaside town of Asilah, located about 1 hour southwest of Tanger by taxi.  In the morning we walked over to the communal taxi […]

From Tenerife North to Playa de Las Americas (South) If you are coming to Tenerife (one of the Canary Islands) there are two airports:  One in the north and one in the south.  From Spain there is a good chance that your flight will land at TCI (the northern airport of the island).  But chances […]

Seville to airport by Bus

By Heidi | August 4, 2009

June 19, 2009: The next morning we woke early to catch a bus to the Seville Airport enroute to Tenerife, Spain.  To save money we opted to walk again and pull our luggage down the cobble stone streets, again.  I really wish we didn’t depart with our huge backpack in Thailand, but we had no […]

Malaga, Spain

By Heidi | August 1, 2009

June 16, 2009: Seville to Malaga by Bus The next morning we took a taxi to the other bus station in Seville, Prado De San Sebastian.  If we were familiar with the town we probably would have walked, but were told it was at least a 25 minute walk.  The taxi ride only took a […]
