Have Money, Will Travel: Make Extra Income from Your Anywhere Office

I don’t want to waste your time. If you’re here, it’s because you want to know how to make additional income for travel or any number of other reasons. Maybe you want to stay home with your kids, maybe you need extra money to support another endeavor you’re working on, or maybe the idea of not living paycheck to paycheck sounds great. Fabulous.

30 Mexican Instagram Shots That Have Me Stoked about Mexico

We are in the midst of Dominican Heritage month here in DR, but for obvious reasons, I have Mexico on the mind. I’ve exchanged emails with another Jen in Guadalajara, asking questions and trying to build – as best I could – an understanding of what we’re getting ourselves into. I’ve searched around for blogs based in Mexico to get a feel for what life will be like there. And Instagram has me bubbling with anticipation. I searched hashtags like #culturamexicana...

SnapShots: Santo Domingo’s National Aquarium (Acuario Nacional)

Husband’s Choice: A Midtown Food Tasting Adventure

“We could try and see if we could find cheap tickets for a show?” I half-heartedly suggested to Husband. He was silent a little too long so I continued, “Or we could just walk around and eat!” Immediate agreement. Husband and I are foodies, plain and simple. Give us the option and we’ll choose to get to know a city by a handful of restaurants every time. After all, what better way to get to know a place than through...

Being a Good Host to Long-Term Guests: A Not Always Obvious Guide

With our holiday break a few short days away, we are preparing for the mad dash that is out holiday break. While super exciting to be home for the holidays and to share good tidings with family and friends, it’s good to keep in mind if you are dealing with expat friends – or being a good host to one – that going home isn’t all it’s (nut)cracked up to be. We sleep in different beds and lug around two toddlers...
