  • Riding in the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile #BucketList

    Riding in the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile #BucketList

    It may seem a bit strange that a grown man would put “Riding in the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile” on his bucket list, but life has no spice without a little quirkiness. Besides, ever since I first learned of the Wienermobile as a kid, it’s been something that I’ve wanted to do. When the opportunity finally knocked, I answered the door. It happened like this: I was recently participating in a travel centric twitter chat. One of the chat questions asked […]

  • first zombie killed in AMC's The Walking Dead

    In search of Zombies on a #CanAmSpyder

    It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of road trips. I’m also a huge supporter of our men and women in uniform and a huge fan of AMC’s The Walking Dead series. So when I learned that a ladies riding club, called the Bomber Girls LRC, was sponsoring the Biking Dead Tour to raise money for our troops, I couldn’t wait to hit the road in search of zombies on a #CanAmSpyder!  The ride was from Newnan, Georgia (located […]

  • Do you have a a bucket list, a wish list or a vision board?

    Do you have a a bucket list, a wish list or a vision board?

    Call it what you will, a bucket list, a wish list or a vision board but we should all should have one. Every year we put together a list of things we want to ‘check off’ and 2014 is a doozy. The thing is, you need to be specific, know what you want and know where you’re heading. After all, you wouldn’t take a road trip without directions, right? Think of this list as your GPS!

    And most important, let us know what’s on your list! We may have missed something!! The older we get, the Bigger we DREAM!

  • There’s Nothing Touristy About Molokai

    There’s Nothing Touristy About Molokai

    Molokai is one of the most beautiful and spiritual places we’ve ever visited. It has the highest sea cliffs in the world, lush tropical vegetation, a fascinating history and a population of beautiful souls.  There is nothing touristy about Molokai. It is authentic, genuine and unpretentious. Molokai will forever hold a special place in our hearts. Some of the highlights or our journey included a visit to a plumeria plantation, a kayak trip, a tour of the Hawala Valley, and […]

  • Is living the dream impossible? We think not!

    Is living the dream impossible? We think not!

    Is living the dream impossible? We think not! We would like you to meet Brian and Marianne, two very inspiring friends we met on Twitter. They changed course, charted a new route and are now living their dream.

    Here’s their story ….

    We are Brian and Marianne, owners of Le Couloumé and Le Fournil, our newly-refurbished vacation cottage in South West France. A couple of years ago we

    Brian and Marianne
    Brian and Marianne
    decided to make a long- held dream reality: quit the stresses of commuting to London and start a new life in the French Pyrenees.

    Brian, originally from Cornwall/England, is a keen road cyclist and found a cyclist’s nirvana here. He also brews a variety of beers of excellent quality, as anyone who tries them will attest, and is a talented guitarist and musician as well. Marianne, a Berliner by birth, with an inborn wanderlust, is a natural linguist speaking three and a half languages: German, English, French and a bit of Spanish. She is also passionate about vegetarian cooking, many ingredients coming from our potager, the typical French kitchen garden, where we grow a lot of our own fruit and vegetables.

    Here is our story: For many years, working and living in London we had felt (like many people) that there should be more to our lives than feeling constantly exhausted by demanding, stressful jobs which left so little quality time.

    Unlike many people we decided to do something about it and the desire to move to another country, either Italy or France, took hold. The much simpler life style and the slower pace of life that draw millions of people like us for their holidays was a powerful incentive to choose one of those countries to live our dream.

  • Bring Your Camera to the Gaylord Opryland Hotel

    Bring Your Camera to the Gaylord Opryland Hotel

    If you ever get to visit Nashville, Tennessee, you’re going to want to bring your camera to the Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Resort. The hotel was kind enough to provide us with an incredible suite that served as our base of operation while we were in town scouting the city for potential segments for Midlife Road Trip. We were so mesmerized with the variety and beauty of the foliage in property’s three enormous atriums that we actually took more pictures […]
