Perhaps the coolest thing ever said about us! "As Veronica and David’s story reminds us, when we set out in search of adventure what we really discover is ourselves. All journeys are inner journeys.  The excitement of exploration lets us shed our ordinary preoccupations long enough to feel the rapture of being alive."

Thanks +Karen McCann!

How important is sampling local food to YOU when traveling? Where have you visited and fell in love with the cuisine?

An old adage says that you don't really know someone until you walk a mile in their shoes. We believe it is just as true that you don't really know a place until you eat a plate of its food.

I love trying new foods when I'm traveling, but it doesn't appear that I am nearly as adventurous as Veronica. Heart and lungs - no thanks. I'll stick to chocolate and cheese fondue in Switzerland!

Follow us around this beautiful Medieval German town! I'll blow you away with its quaintness!

It's not every day that we get to spend securely tucked away within the impenetrable ramparts of a fortified enclave, but Rothenburg ob der Tauber in Germany was just such a place.

We were so blessed to see the cherry blossoms in Japan - there are some really cool stories behind them - and they only last a week!
In another of what seem to be unbelievable bits of good timing we have encountered in our travels, we hit Japan right at the peak of the cherry blossoms blooming.

We saw a pre-screen of Love & Mercy - and were blown away - SO GOOD! David sits down with the director at the +AARP  Movies For Grownups Film Festival - click here - http://www.gypsynester.com/loveandmercy.htm - to see the trailer, release date and the stars (hint: John Cusack and Paul Dano are amazing and Paul Giamatti is crazyscary as the evil doctor)!

And don't forget to use your http://AARPdiscounts.com card at the movies!
