As Tom often reminds me “it’s all about perspective.”

Landing in Spain from Cuba probably would have seemed like arriving in a cold place where we could not communicate with anyone (due to the incredibly different Spanish). Luckily we arrived in Spain from the Czech Republic so instead it fel like landing in a beautifully warm golden world where we could freely and easily communicate with everybody!

We rented a car when we landed in Barcelona to drive down to Granada for a 3 day international Autism conference.


Zipping down the olive grove surrounded highways with the windows down and our shoes off felt absolutely lovely after our last couple of weeks of two pairs of socks, with tights, and leg warmers  all crammed into boots.

Unfortunately our weekend in Granada was spent too busy playing grown-up at the conference to see much of the city.

I know, I know THE ALHAMBRA!!

Hate to admit it, but we didn’t even make it there. After the last 10 months we have had we really can’t complain about a weekend of all work and no play, now can we??

After Grown-up time in Granada was over we were ready for some serious play time in Tarragona. A city south of Barcelona known for it’s extensive collection of 2,000 year old Roman sights and giants. You gotta love 2,000 year old beach side amphitheaters! And giants.


I think of California as officially "home" but can usually be found a lot closer to the equatorial belt. After finishing a Masters program in 2011 I found myself trying to decide between a couple of different high-powered career options. I decided I wasn't quite ready to "grow up" and went with an entirely different plan which involved selling off everything I owned with my partner Tom and buying a one-way ticket to Colombia. Our plan was to travel "Till The Money Ran Out" and then go home to start our grown-up lives. Instead, we started our own app development company on the road and have been criss-crossing the globe, traveling, working, eating spicy food and refusing to "grow up" ever since.
