We arrived in France for our big move August 23, 2016. We flew into Geneva with 4 very full suitcases. We tried to be pretty minimalist with our wardrobes but we had a ton of toys and books for the kids. It seemed like a lot at the airport, but really 4 suitcases to hold […]
Where in the world are Craig and Amanda?
Hello, friends! Sorry for the delayed post! All is good in the world of the Hewitt family. Last time we posted, we were in Aix en Provence. Craig wrote about it already but I’ll summarize it by saying we love, love, loved it! In fact, we decided we wanted to stay in France much longer. […]
Say it or spell it how you like, we just left there and are now in Aix en Provence. Seville/Sevilla was a good stop for us. We didn’t do a ton because it was HOTT! Seriously it was Florida weather and since we’ve been staying in small apartments we need to spend a lot of […]
A month in already!
Time does not register the same when you’re traveling. Some days it seems like we’ve been on the road for years, other times it’s like we are just getting started. This past week in Portugal was totally different from any way we’ve travelled before. Normally we have a hard time slowing down. In Portugal we […]
Mad about Madrid
Ok, y’all, sorry for the delay. I couldn’t post because we were to busy living it up! And I haven’t taken hardly any pictures because I miss too much of real life when I’m looking through a lens. We arrived in Spain with no problem. The kids did great with the flight and we had […]
Amanda’s Weekly Roundup: Dublin
Hello, friends! We just finished up 5 days in Dublin and are now staying on a farm in Clifdon, just outside Galway. We stopped at the Cliffs of Moher on the way here and the views were breathtaking. This part of the country is seriously the most beautiful place I’ve ever been. The green foliage […]
The Adventure Begins!
The time has come! We are beyond excited to begin this next chapter of our lives! We drove down to Orlando this past weekend and have completely junked up my in-laws house with all of our “irreplaceable treasures”. Sorry about that, Butch and Cindy! And now we’re enjoying three days of kid free fun at […]
Living in the Now
We’re in a funny time of limbo. The travel plans are coming together and while we have a ton to do with our new businesses, I’m having a hard time staying in the moment. Knowing we’re in for such a potentially life changing experience has completely consumed our everyday lives. I can’t help but mentally […]
Packing for long term travel
Hello, friends! Amanda here. We are getting really excited about our trip and can’t believe it’s less than 3 months away! It’s something we’ve been researching and planning for years and have noticed that “what to pack” is a hot topic among the travel circuit. Seeing how others have taken similar trips is so […]
The Great Wide Anywhere
Well, that’s a strange name. Where did it come from? And who are you people? “The Great Wide Anywhere” is a take on “The great wide somewhere” Belle sings about in “Beauty and the Beast”. She has a good life in a small town but craves a little more. That’s us. We are Amanda and […]
