Robin & Tim

I’m Robin and I’m the blogger.  Tim would blog too, but he’s too busy preparing to master Muay Thai and climb mountains.  I’ll tag along on some of that, but I’m just as happy watching him from a distance with a drink in my hand (and a kindle in my other).

Hiking in the White Mountains

Tim and I fit into the “opposites attract” type of couples.  While I enjoy spending our transit time making my way through the classics, Tim will be on a quest to find out if there are any regional beers he hasn’t tried. On any given day in a new unexplored place you’ll find me in a local shop talking to the clerk about the local economic and political climate, while Tim will have gotten himself lost on a bike in the middle of the jungle.

Thank God that we both love to travel.  We had a joke when we first started dating that we couldn’t manage to be on the same continent as each other. Between the two of us we have been to more than 50 countries even before this Journey.

Back in the real world I worked for an online media company and Tim worked for a fitness company.  We were both in director positions and life was going a little too well so I told him we were going to quit our jobs and travel.  He thought I was crazy then, and still does now.

    Happiness is having a warm, loving, caring family….living in another continent.

    Your adventures sound wonderful, and I would also have a hard time leaving places which offer so much to a traveler. Luckily you have the time to enjoy !! Looking forward to your next posting !!

    Robin and Tim,
    I see you picked up a local doggie for photo op. Almost looks like Noosa …
    with less fur. Wonderful reading about your escapades and especially your
    philosophy on why your marriage works so well. Interesting to read you
    are not always joined at the hip … creates more stories to share at the end of the day.
    Fabulous, fabulous opportunity. Heart is warmed by your colorful descriptions of life obviously not on-the-run … more like a slow-dance
    to strange and wondrous musical discoveries !
    Love you around the world and back,
    Grandma Barb xoxo

      Grandma – this is the about page that we wrote before we left – so that is Noosa. You probably got a notification when there was a new comment and that’s why you thought it was a new post 🙂

    Are you guys back yet? Would you recommend the hotel you stayed at in Lovina?

      we got about 6 weeks ago – and I have been neglecting the blog. I would recommend the hotel I guess but not enthusiastically – its the Lovina Beach Hotel. Lovina is a quiet beach town so you can always show up and check out the area – there will be plenty of vacancy. But if we had to do it again – we would have just skipped it and headed to Lombok instead.
