I am always fascinated by the graffiti we see in any city we visit. Here are just a few of my favorites from Curitiba. Pretty cool, huh?
While things are quiet at home, let me tell you about a previous trip to Curitiba. I hope you enjoy it even a little bit as much as I did. November means Christmas shopping and my Girl was on the hunt for a few things from Brazil for her family back home. On Sundays Curitiba […]
This week while things are slow at home I’m looking back on my big road. My daughter was visiting and our good friends took us home with them to visit family. The first thing we did after we arrived? Took a power nap and had a good family lunch with Glaucio’s mother. Nothing recharges your […]
Life has been rather domestic these past couple of weeks. Instead of recounting my trips to the grocery store I thought you’d like to read about my very first Brazilian road trip from a little while back. My daughter was in Brazil for a visit and our good friends took us home with them. Twenty […]
Now you’ve seen how we celebrated Halloween this year, I thought you might like to see how different it was than our last Brazilian Halloween. Two years ago we spent a Halloween in Brazil in a different city, and we had a completely different experience. I originally wrote this post on my old blog here. […]
This isn’t our first Halloween in Brazil, but it’s the first one during which the kids of our apartment building will be coming around in their costumes, trick-or-treating. How exciting! I may have preferred that we get a little more than one day’s notice about it, but at least I still had time to […]
Saturday’s portagem class only brought a little bit of soreness the next day, and it gave us a taste of the fun that could be had. Being in the gym, seeing the acrobats and the equipment got my gymnast heart beating again. So I talked my new friend into going back with me and trying […]
So you know how I was saying that settling in a new place is haaard, and making friends is haaard, and finding new activities is haaaard… ? Remember one of my tricks for building a life is to take a class? We found our class! Also, remember how we are getting older, and how gravity […]
There are dozens of clocks throughout York, but this one is my favorite. The bracket is more ornate than most, and who can resist that little Admiral? How can you not love him? Iron up to the knees with a carved mahogany body, he’s been standing on top of that clock since John Agar put […]
York, England is considered the most haunted city in the whole of the UK. With over five hundred recorded hauntings, it is even considered by some to be the most haunted city in the entire world. I knew this before we went, and while I was looking around every quiet corner and hoping to catch […]
I have read about a hundred articles and blog posts about how to settle in and build a life in your new community when you move to a new country. Most of them have a few helpful nuggets of wisdom such as “Take some classes”, “volunteer”, and “Get out into your community”. These are things […]
Here we are, nearly a week into full time living in Brazil. You might think that means it’s a crazy week spent running around like mad men getting everything set up, hooked up, stocked up and finding our way around, but it’s really not. We got all of that out of the way when we […]
One year to the day after Brian started this job, we’ll make another run to London to pick up our passports with their shiny new visas. If you’re keeping track, this is my fifth Brazilian visa, and the third one in this passport alone. Holy cow do I know the ins and outs of dealing […]
After a solid year of knowing that we’re moving back to Brazil, things are finally, finally moving quickly. The paperwork madness is (we hope) at an end. We have all of our documents in hand and we’re going to show up at the consulate tomorrow to submit everything. With luck, we’ll have our passports back […]
Have I mentioned that we’re geocachers? Way back in 2001 I had just moved from Reno, NV to Corona, CA and didn’t know a soul. I had two tiny kids and my very first internet connection. A lucky random click during my first exploration into the mighty world wide web brought me to the Geocaching.com […]
Who are these people?
Peg and Brian - An American photographer and her hot Scottish husband, expats and slow travelers out in the world and writing about it. Along the way we hope to see amazing sights, meet interesting people, stay in roach free lodgings and stay alive. So far, so good (except for the roaches).
