There are people that go on adventures and then there are adventurous people that seem to take life by the horns and play by the rules that they have set for themselves.  I would describe Lisa Hoashi as the latter.

Originally from Oregon, Lisa now resides with her Spanish husband on their farm in Catalunya where she runs a life coaching business in between adventures.  Go on and read about her nine-month wilderness survival course, South American hitchhiking trip, and touching experience in a Syrian refugee camp.

Oh, and if you have even the slightest inkling of doing something you’ve been dreaming of but just aren’t sure how to go about it, I’d recommend signing up for Lisa’s free online event “Six Steps to Launch Your Dream” this Thursday, October 29.

The best part of having a blog is that you can publish bits of information out into this tiny bit of virtual real estate.  People with similar interests can find these little bits, reach out, and start a connection.  And before you know, you’re having beers with your new friends in a faraway place.

This is what happened when I first met Ryan and Angela from Jets Like Taxis.  We come from similar Midwestern U.S. roots but have met up on two different occasions in different cities in Spain.  That’s just how this stuff works and I love it.

Ryan and Ang (along with their grumpy little dog Louis in tow) are designers that like to write about travel and location independence.  Be sure to check out their site.  They’ve lived in some incredible places, have experienced a bunch of cool things, and are just the type of folks you’d like to swap travel stories with over a cold one.  And this is their ABCs.

ABCs of Travel with Kemkem from Next Bite of Life

Today is the 2nd edition of our guest post series called ABCs of Travel.  This is a listing of 26 prompts (one for each letter of the alphabet) that lets you tell a little bit about your travels: best, worst, and memorable.  Let us know if you would like to be featured in a future edition of ABCs of Travel.

I have to admit that my taste in blogs is slowly shifting.  While I’ll always keep a pulse on personal finance blogs, I’m finding myself less drawn to sites that offer up a lot of impersonal advice to those that tell the stories of folks who have worked (and saved) hard to gain some sort of financial freedom.  I like to see what other people are doing with their free time.

This is where Kemkem from the Next Bite of Life comes in.  Her site is great fun if you want a glimpse into someone who has gained early retirement by doing more things right than wrong and has a healthy perspective on life.  Originally from Africa, Kemkem now lives in Malta (via the U.S.) where she, her Italian husband, and two rescue beagles now reside.  Have a look over at her blog as every weekend it seems they can be found gallivanting around Europe.

The following is a post from Kemkem who writes about some of her travels that span from her teens to just a couple of weeks ago.

My ABCs of Travel

The best part of blogging is meeting and getting to hear from all of you.  I always have my ear to the tracks for suggestions about the best of what’s out there and I want to hear your stories.

You may have noticed a new page at the top entitled ABCs of Travel.  I’m looking to hear about your best and worst travel destinations and experiences.  I thought I’d get the ball rolling by answering the questions myself.
