We are expats at heart. Unfortunately, our wallets have us in a headlock. Here's our meandering journey from Washington, DC to...somewhere else. (Oh, and some great travel tools--for adventures of more than a week, less than a lifetime...)

  • Risk Management, St. Elsewhere Style
    on Sep 30, 2011 in Caribbean housesit long term travel
    Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.“Dogs! Reef! Roxie! C’mon!” we yell as the four of us tumble into the owner’s bedroom. Rick’s spotted a bee cloud racing across the fields toward the house, and we run for the closest room with glassed-in d...
  • The B&B Trial...and ErrorThe helpmate, working off his B&B choresMany of us wonder what it would be like to run a B&B. To live in a Caribbean villa and welcome guests who pay good money to marvel over our (temporary) home, our fabulous breakfasts, our TripAdvisor-fiv...
  • Diving In (with American history)

    I grew up in the suburbs. The town was small enough for me and my friend Betty to ride our bikes past all the houses of Belair Junior High’s most interesting boys, but big enough that we could profess ignorance about the geography if we had been sp...

    This is Roxie. She’s a Labradoodle, and way too hairy for life on St. Elsewhere, but here she be. She’s lived here her whole life – about six years. I’ve known her since she was the diva of Dive St. Elsewhere, the scuba shop her owners operat...
  • Fruits of Knowledge: A first real biteI was all prepared to write this meaningful little piece about how I can’t spot the passion fruits on the big passion fruit trees in the yard; they just show up on the ground, like little passion fruit gifts. Surely that’s a metaphor for somethin...
