Don’t you just love it after reading a story when you’re given the chance to catch up with the characters and learn what’s become of them?We’re only one month removed from the trip, but life in Los Angeles is surprisingly lovely. We use the word “surprising” because we were pretty much dreading our return. We […]
What makes for a good movie on “A Year To Think”? Compelling subject matter is, of course, king. A strong cinematic concept definitely helps. A narrative arc is never frowned upon. And a surprising emotional component is always home run. But not everything we shot found its way out of our constantly moving post-production facility. […]
“How do you pack for a year around the world?” This is our second most asked question. The simple answer is “Pack as if you’re traveling for two weeks.” We found this advice on a number of blogs we found when we googled “family around the world travel.” Most importantly, it all begins with the […]
Once we forded the river, we finally found the starting camp for our “Walking Safari.” Months earlier, when we signed up for this Walking Safari, we really didn’t know what the hell we were getting into.

We’ve lived high, we’ve lived low. We’ve slept in castles, on wooden floors, in guest rooms, on trains, in tents, and on houseboats. But this was the first dorm room we ever slept in. And because we happened to show up between terms, we had the entire four building complex all to ourselves. The […]
We’ve slept on the wooden floors of floating houses in Cambodia, shared cramped hotel rooms in Peru, shivered in freezing tents in the Sahara, and slept four to a train compartment in China. But for one month, we traded the lives of Nomads for the lives of Parisians. And what an incredible place in Paris […]
