Wow! This is new...

Someone once referred to us as "one of the original bloggers".

Hmmmm...then why am I just starting a Blog now?

Well, way back in 1998, in the early dawn of personal websites on the Internet, my husband David and I (Kristina) started This was our "travelogue" website for our round-the-world trip so our family and friends could follow along on our 9 month journey. At the time, we felt alone in the universe and we were. So much so, that the following year were were interviewed by the NY Times in an article about "Techno-nomads" (

Who knew that in a few short years, everyone and their brother would have their own website and later their own blog?

Who knew that the website would become my labor of love and stay alive through countless subsequent journeys?

So here I am today, almost 10 years later starting my first blog.

Why am I doing it? So I can "return to my roots" of posting from the road, this time unencumbered by computer, modem, phone lines, and "dial-up" access. My goal is to see if I can post my next trip on the fly using just my PDA (Palm Lifedrive) and digital camera. Then, after I get home, I'll move everything over to the website and add more details and photos.

Depending on wi-fi access, it just might happen!

Stay tuned....Budapest, Vienna, and Prague are coming in March 2007!
