Work Permit Paperwork for Vietnam

USA | Fri, 19 Jul 2019 | By mwollak | Views [175]

The bureaucratic hoops have by far been the most frustrating part of the process thus far.  I had to collect, notarize, and authenticate too many documents to count and the process has been so confusing that I have oscillated between "I've ... Read more >

USA | Sat, 18 May 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [167]

The Duchess of My Travels

NORFOLK ISLAND | Tue, 28 May 2019 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [127]

A couple of weeks ago, feeling like LeBron or Steph Curry I, from Adelaide, fired a long-distance 3 pointer in the direction of Norfolk Island, hoping for nothing but net. In the week of launching that shot, I had some frustrating waits with my thumb ... Read more >

Magnolia Table

USA | Fri, 10 May 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [126]

A New Chapter

USA | Wed, 22 May 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [126]

THE LATE MAY SNOW SHOULDN’T HAVE SURPRISED US.  We’ve lived in Colorado long enough to know not to count winter out until June.  But the cold and dreary weather did catch us unawares — we were wearing shorts last week —... Read more >

Champion of the Grampians

AUSTRALIA | Thu, 9 May 2019 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [115]

One Step Closer

USA | Fri, 7 Jun 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [107]

WE’RE ONE STEP NEARER TO LEAVING.  Jim from Colorado Springs gave us a deposit on the RV, we can live in it until 30 June — and the check cleared — so that’s a burden lifted.  We still have the F-150 but we have offers ... Read more >

Caveat Emptor X 2!

USA | Thu, 27 Jun 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [106]

USA | Tue, 7 May 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [106]

Above the Bounteous Isle, Juliett Soars...

NORFOLK ISLAND | Thu, 30 May 2019 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [105]
