When I told my friend Shauna that we had an RV, she asked, “Have you seen The Long, Long Trailer movie?” I hadn’t seen it so I checked it out from the library. The Long, Long Trailer is a comedy featuring Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz and it is hilarious! The movie features a 1953…
They look like pictures but they move
A Poodle Reunion
James has a Poodle friend in Georgetown named Faris. They love to meet up and play or just walk together around DC. We met Faris years ago while walking James before bed one night. Now we schedule regular Poodle playdates for these boys! When we moved to Europe, James said goodbye to Faris, but we…
Dehydrated Chicken Dog Treats
James loves dehydrated meat treats and it is so easy to make dehydrated chicken dog treats. In this video, Chris shows you how we make these easy dog treats!
James the Poodle and His Little Friends
I found a few adorable clips of James the Poodle and I wanted to share them with you!
2021 Tokyo Olympics High Jump
I want to watch this moment over and over – this is by far one of my favorite Olympic moments in history! I love how Italy’s Tamberi jumps onto Qatar’s Barshim!
Old Movie Stars Dancing to Uptown Funk
This video was recommended to me on YouTube and the edit is absolutely fantastic! I enjoyed it so much I decided I wanted to post it here on the blog. It is a compilation video of dance scenes from old movies edited to the 2014 song Uptown Funk.
RV Weight Distribution Hitch
In this video I show you how I hook up with the weight distribution hitch. It’s easy to do, better on your rear suspension and makes towing much safer. You can find this exact hardware in ‘our gear‘ on this site. We list all of our favorite gear and link you to where you can…
RV Hookups at Campgrounds
The one question I always get about our RV is, “How bad is it to deal with the sewer line?” Well, instead of worrying you with details, let me just show you. In this video I will show you how I unhook everything from the RV before we move. You will get to see my…
Apartment Tour | Geneva, Switzerland Airbnb
We are in Geneva, Switzerland! The city reminds me of Washington, DC – clean and modern yet quiet for such a big city. We are in a residential area, but it is a short walk to the heart of town and Lake Geneva. Check out our Airbnb:
Apartment Tour | Lyon, France Airbnb
Since we arrived in Lyon on a rainy day, we decided to film our apartment tour at the end of our stay. We really love our apartment and the neighborhood. The best part is the short walk to what is now our favorite bakery in all of Europe: Boulangerie de la Martinière (24 rue Martinière)….
We decided to take a day trip to Aix-en-Provence. It is a short train ride from Marseille. I’d heard of Aix-en-Provence because it is a popular city for students at FSU and UF (and other schools in the US) for studying abroad. I didn’t study any foreign languages at UF but I wish I would…
Learning About Apples in British Columbia
We are having fun learning all about apples in Canada!
Delta Air Lines Commercial
I’ve been on three Delta flights recently and when I play a movie, this commercial always plays first. It is narrated by Viola Davis and it is a beautiful reminder of why we travel the world. Here is what the Viola Davis says in the commercial: When we’re born, we are more alike than we…
Our Neighbor Helga
When Chris started working at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC, we asked our former neighbor Helga if she would be interested in sharing her story. I am so glad Helga agreed to be interviewed. Helga had told me a few things in person and I had watched videos of presentations she…
Dory Boat Madness in Pacific City, Oregon
We were in Pacific City, Oregon and we had never heard of these Dory Boats. Apparently the Dory Boat history here in Pacific City is over 100 years old! The flat bottomed Dory boats are launched right from the beach into the sea. They fish for salmon, crab, tuna and rock fish. Then when the…
Poodle Prayers from Instagram Friends
When James was sick this Spring, I loved reading his prayers out loud to him while he was in the ICU. It really helped me to know how much James was loved by total strangers. People we only know from the internet. These prayers helped us get through a very rough three weeks and I…
Music Video: ME! by Taylor and Brendon
I love Taylor Swift. Her music is just upbeat and great for singing along in the car. I also really enjoy her music videos. So many of them are really done well! And I love the Easter Eggs she plants in her videos and on her Instagram. Taylor hides little clues for things we don’t…
Video: Why Trains Suck in America
I really enjoy the YouTube channel Wendover Productions. We love traveling all over Europe by train. But the thing is, cities in Europe are SO much closer to each other (for the most part). Here in the US we sometimes drive for 4 hours and hardly pass a gas station. We sometimes laugh and say,…
Apartment Tour | Antibes, France Airbnb
Check out our amazing Airbnb in Antibes, France. Our apartment was actually closer to Juan-Les-Pins. This was one of the most comfortable Airbnbs we have stayed at and we will definitely be back one day! And it is a short walk to the beach!
Pre-Sleep Cuddles with James
James is always in bed before us. I like going in and having a few cuddles with him and giving him a pre-sleep Poodle massage!
