Handsome Dog on Rocky Beach

Yesterday we shared our best 10 moments from our first year as Vangabonds, and so today we think it’s only fair to fess up about the worst 10 as well. Except we couldn’t think of 10 moments that were all that deserving. We stretched ourselves, but 9 will have to do. As we devised this … Read more

Love-at-first-sight-iversary 2013

In the midst of all of our Darien Gap adventures, we failed to mention or celebrate a pretty meaningful milestone in our life – our one year travelversary. You know, a travelversary.

Dinner and Drinks with Tom and Kelsey

I wish I remembered when we first started reading Drive the Americas. ¬†It was my first, tangible-ish (as the internet now apparently constitutes tangibility to me) evidence that what we had decided to do was not completely out of left field or impossible – though at the time, I also wasn’t even aware that anyone … Read more

Vangabonds in front of the house in Knightdale

We finished packing and cleaning, took a few pictures, then pulled out of the driveway like we have thousands of time before. As we … Read more
