On the Road Again! Wait, Suitcases? That’s Not Right.

Anne’s Preface: Last weekend, McKane, Dax and I took a three-day trip to Seattle. Tom, Kieran, and Asher stayed home and lived it up by visiting Waffle House, IHOP, and Chuck E. Cheese in a 48-hour pancake and pizza binge. Here’s what McKane had to say about our quick trip…his first post-RTW travel experience. It…

Stuck in Uyuni

After a long, long three days of traveling through the Andes and the Salar, we arrived at a small office that belonged to our tour agency, Estrella del Sur. Everyone else from our tour was planning to go to Potosi and Sucre, but there were no buses going to those places that late in the…

These Boots Aren’t Made for Walkin’

In our four days in L’viv, I found out that it was my favorite city in Eastern Europe. Ice cream cones at McDonald’s were 30 cents, a ride on the tram cost 7 cents, and the ladies all wore crazy high heels. This comic is dedicated to my preschoolin’ cousins–Luke, Jade, and Aislinn. This one’s…
