Full-Time RV Life: The Sad Truth || #TravelTuesday Travel Link Up

Happy #TravelTuesday!! 
Travel Blogger Link Up
I know, I know, but it's Thursday... 4 pm on Thursday. 
Well, y'all... life! Thanks for giving me some grace! 
Have fun travels to share? Adventures in your own backyard? 
Add them to the link up at the bottom of this post! 

This month's link up is a few days behind, because we have been crazy busy trying to pack up again and get on the road. We even gave ourselves an extra week in Orlando and it still wasn't enough time to get caught up with everyone! I have not had a minute to sit down and work on a post and probably should have just saved this one for today, but I wasn't really planning ahead, and then all of a sudden Tuesday came... and went. I did manage to get our Road Talk Tuesday video finished, so today that's all I really have to share.

Full-Time RV Life || Nashville, Providence Canyon, and Micanopy

I feel like I have been saying this so often, but yet again we have been a little MIA around the blog. We returned to Florida for a wedding in St. Augustine last weekend and, because we were so close to Orlando, we made plans to come back and catch up with friends and family before hitting the road again. We were only planning to stay for a week, but there was so much to fit in (and soooo much laundry to get done) that we have ended up staying for two. We've been busy running errands, placing Amazon orders, and catching up with everyone that we have neglected to do much updating around these parts. I have a few minutes between the chaos today to play catch-up, so I figured I would share a little bit about the last few spots we hit up before rolling back into Orlando...

Our Self-Planned Nassau Lighthouse Excursion || #TravelTuesday Travel Blogger Link Up

Happy Travel Tuesday!! 
It's time for another link up, so be sure to head to the bottom of this post and add your adventures, to the blue "add your link" button, so that we can travel together! 

We are loving our time in the mountains right now, but this cold weather has us seriously missing some sun and sand!! I figured to fight off the chill I should finally get around to posting about our last cruise to the Bahamas. Cruising is one of our absolute favorite ways to travel! We pack up all the essentials, board the boat, and then it's smooth sailing, as we head from one tropical destination to another! We usually try to book cruises heading to places we have never been and since almost every ship we have ever been on makes a stop in the Bahamas, that's usually a day that we won't leave the boat; opting to enjoy a deserted ship to ourselves.

Nassau Excursion to Hog Island Lighthouse

However, if you have ever sailed through Nassau, then you know that the tip of the island (as you are entering or leaving the harbor) has an abandoned lighthouse and a long stretch of gorgeous sand that just looks so inviting. Each time we would sail away, we would watch the lighthouse (Hog Island Lighthouse) get smaller and smaller and talk about how "one of these times" we were going to make it over there to explore! We finally decided that this specific trip was going to be that moment; the only challenge now was how to get over there?

Life's Sweet Journey Life Lately

Happy February friends!
Hoping all is well in your world! 
It's the beginning of a new month, and we've been a little quiet on the blog, so I figured it's the perfect time for a little "Life Currently" update. Here is what February is currently looking like for us... 

{Finishing} We just finished our new Road Talk Tuesday video and it is now live over on YouTube. We have had a few questions about what we do on the road, so we answered those questions this week. We both teach English online, while we work on hopefully growing this space into part of our income on the road. Head over to YouTube to catch the new video and subscribe! 

{Subscribing} Now that we are spending so much time in the car we are trying to jump on the Podcast Train! We really haven't listened to very many and are trying to find some that we can enjoy together! We have been listening to other travel couples share their stories on To the Nations Worldwide podcast and are excited to be one of the couples on there soon!Share your faves! What podcasts should we be subscribing to?

Full-Time RV Life || Staying Connected and Happy on the Road

Happy Thursday! 
If you follow our adventures on social media, or have watched this weeks Road Talk episode, then you know it's been one crazy week on the road! 

From our first tire blow out, to no cell service at the campground we were staying at (we teach English online and have to be connected), only to get stuck the mug on the way to our next location, it's definitely been a week of on-the-go learning experiences for us. I figured I would share some tips and tricks we learned that might help you avoid making some of the mistake we made! So here are...

Our Asheville Brewery Tour

Happy Thursday! 
This week it's been all about Asheville here on the blog and we kicked it off with some amazingly yummy food! Today's it is all about the boozy side of Asheville... come join us for our Asheville Brewery Tour! 

Asheville Brewery Tour

Babe and I have birthdays just two days apart, which we actually find pretty fun, because it means double the celebrating! We spent my birthday checking something off my bucket list (seeing the Biltmore at Christmas) and we spent his doing our own Asheville brewery tour . Asheville's brewery scene is hopping (pun intended)! There is practically a brewery of every corner. We chose five that were in pretty good proximity to each other and made a day out of it!

Biscuit Head || The Best Breakfast {and Lunch} in Asheville, NC

Happy, happy Monday! 
Cheers to a new week!

We are currently set-up at a park in Alabama, visiting a sweet friend of mine who just had a baby! I love that this RV life allows us the freedom to visit for a lot longer than we would have been able to otherwise. 

This week, on the blog, we are sharing all about our time in Asheville! And what better way to kick off exploring somewhere new than with a good meal?! Seriously, y'all! Asheville has some amazing food, but what took the cake for us was Biscuit Head! BEST. BISCUITS. EVER!!

And I can't wait to see all of your adventures; especially since I don't really have one of my own to offer! This week has been crazy; frozen pipes, no running water, and no shower in 4 days!

Hello 2018!! Our January Currently

Hello January and 
HELLO 2018!! 
Life's Sweet Journey

We've been a little quite around these parts; trying to really soak up the holidays and time with family, but are excited to jump back into the swing of things and share all that we've been up to. Our weekly Road Talk videos will resume next Tuesday, along with some more blog posts about our time in Asheville, but until then I can't think of a better way to kick off the new year than with a little January Currently fun! Here is what we've been up to so far this year: 

{Starting} To really get used to seeing all these gorgeous mountain sunsets! We have had one beautiful color display every night for the last two weeks and I am not one bit sad about it! 

{Hoping} That Delilah (our camper) has no frozen/ burst pipes or any damage from the freezing temperatures we've had while we have been in Tennessee. She has been parked down in the woods, at the base of my mom's property, while we are enjoying the warmth of the house. We are keeping a space heater set on low and have been checking on her everyday, but we won't really know if there were any issues until we get back on the road. Prayers are very welcome! 

{Scheduling} The next few months on the road! We know we are heading back to Orlando, for a wedding in March, but until then we are are kind of flying by the seat of our pants. We have general destinations, but no actual spots booked. When you plan to be set in one spot for the first three months, only to have those plans fall through, it really throws you for a loop. But hey, I guess that's what we signed up for when we took the leap into full-time RV life! #Bringiton! 

{Reading} I've actually been able to finish quite a few books these past couple weeks! My most recent being Lone Wolf by Jodi Picoult. Not one of her favorites of mine, but if you enjoy books with a strong animal focus it's a very interesting read.  We are currently listening to Queen of the Tearling anytime we're the road to our next destination and really enjoying it! I have also been reading the illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone to my niece before bed all week and been LOVING every minute of that time together! 

{Playing} With my sweet niece! The hardest thing about being on the road has been being apart from family. It was especially hard not being with them for the holidays. We already knew we would see my parents the week of New Years, at my mom's mountain house in Tennessee, but we got the bonus treat of one of my nieces being able to come too! My sis-in-love had to work all week and with my niece being out of school, and us missing her like CRAZY, my parents decided to bring her with them to "the Blue House". My heart was in absolute heaven!!
