On the Road

Don't you love this photo? I'm standing on the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, taking a photo of my husband.  I discovered this treasure about a year after our trip, on his GoPro.

We live in northern New Jersey, balancing careers with slow living.

Travel philosophy: Settling into a city for weeks, walking and living local. We like to explore the countyside and avoid tourist destinations... but we never skip a must see, like the Mona Lisa. 

  • One of our most talked about memories is when we found ourselves dining in Taksim Square when a riot started. Istanbul (2013). 
  • We have reached the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, spending the night in the summit glacier before descending back to Arusha.  Walking on the Great Wall of China, swimming off the Amalfi Coast, abseiling the Blue Mountains in Australia, skiing the Matterhorn, and so much more.
