LGBT Travel: For a look at what it’s like as LGBT travelers on the road, check out the posts on what it was like to travel as a lesbian couple and had essentially become a half in, half out of the closet lifestyle. As gay travelers, are there times when we should go back inside the closet? And if we do go back in, how far is too far? We also covered the slightly awkward nature of checking in to hotels as a lesbian couple in this post: One bed or two
What I Wonder When I Wander – This was Jessica’s biweekly column covering a wide-range of topics related to travel and life.
Life as digital nomads can sound glamorous and carefree, and to a certain extent, it really is. But there is a dark side to this lifestyle – the “near heart attack” when we think we’ve lost or misplaced something. Read our most embarrassing freak-out moment ever: Warning: Long-term travel may cause heart attacks…well, almost.
Becoming forgettable: How absence doesn’t always make the heart grow fonder – We are not ready to trade in this mindset-altering, life-affirming freedom that becoming nomads has given us…but we are increasingly shocked at just how forgettable this seems to have made us…This has recently become one of our top posts of all time.
20 things we miss from home – After our first nine months on the road, we listed some of the comforts from home that we missed the most while traveling in Central America – Read on through to the comment section, as it turns out that plenty of readers have so many of their own little things they miss from home when they travel, too, and feel free to add what you miss most when you’re traveling!

For our three-year travel-versary, we shared some random travel stats, such as how many beaches we visited, how many pizzas we ate, how many housesits we did, how many photos we took and how much money we spent.
For our two-year travel anniversary we talk about how travel has become our lifestyle, plus we count our transport, countries and how many arguments we had with each other in the last 365 days!
For our first travel anniversary, we added up how many borders we crossed, how many beds we slept in, how many different modes of transport we used and voted for our top 5 places and top 5 food experiences.
