    Jesus Would Shop at Wal-Mart: Tel Aviv to His Home Town of Nazareth

    One of the best ways for Alissa and I to cure travel burnout is to convince people to come visit us somewhere.  Having a familiar face or faces around for a week or two always makes us feel like our normal selves again.  We got...

    We are out of Africa!  We’ve had a few nights in Johannesburg to readjust to finding our own way around a new city, but surprisingly, I still kind of miss our overlanding tent! Istanbul is a city that travelers who we’ve met from all over...

Good deed of the day - I prevented a crime! I (Alissa) was sitting on the tram here in Krakow, and noticed a guy standing near me slowly reaching into another woman's purse, who was also standing. I looked up and caught his eye, and it was clear they weren't together. He yanked his hand back and a moment later leaned over to mean and said "you shut up, this is not your city." Holy shit.... I turned to face forward again but kept my eyes on her purse, and about 2 minutes later he starts to reach in again- the nerve!

Lisa DrewGood for you! I once saw a couple of girls in Paris reach into a guys bag, one digging while the other pretended to hold a map over the theft. But she wasn't looking at the map at all. I ran over and slapped her hands as they glared and cursed at me. I wasn't thinking like you though, and it could've gone really bad had they wanted to fight instead of run across the street.1   ·  1 week ago
