I am so proud to announce that my special fella has published a book called Finding My Voice. That's right. Dr Lowry is now a published author!!!
We're at it again with another of Jen's Nearly Famous Walking Tours! This free walking tour of Los Angeles is a 2.6 mile self-guided walk focused on the fun and funky. It includes an art gallery, a quirky book store, some hipster snacks, and a high-tech circus. Get ready to get weird, ya'll! Walt Disney Concert... Continue Reading →
This month, we are house sitting in Glendora, California. We have two black labs, a pool, and the most beautiful home. What a life!
We've just wrapped up the first part of our American road trip, living the #vanlife from Florida to Idaho. Now it is time to begin Part Two: West Coast.
Traveling does things to a person. It changes you on a fundamental level. If you asked us to describe ourselves in one word, we'd say "total rebels". Go ahead, tell me that's two words. I double-dog dare you. We are Josh and Jen no longer; let me introduce you to Scrappy and The Wild Card. We're traveling the world, breaking the rules, and living life on the cliff's edge.

There seem to be a bazillion nomad bloggers out there talking about how cheap it is to travel, but very few are open about their finances. We've gotten quite a few questions about how we can afford to travel full-time, so we've decided to open up the books and do a monthly post with the details of our budget. The hope is that these posts will help prepare others who are thinking about jumping into the nomad life, and help us re-assess our spending habits. Enjoy!
The residence of KL are a mixed bag of ethnically different people. There are large populations of people from India, China (mostly Cantonese), and of course the native Malaysians.

Not only is it an inspiring setting for world peace, but it is a foodie's dream come true.
For our first two weeks in Kuala Lumpur, we are staying in Hote123, a cheap hotel in the neighborhood of Pudu. Pudu does not offer much in the way of tourist attractions, but there is a convenient KL Rapid Transit stop and a nice variety of local restaurants. Once we got use to it (and got over the fact that the internet is very spotty), we found ourselves really enjoying our quaint hotel in this local neighborhood.
