A budget for any vacation/holiday is a personal topic. It’s scary to allow others to see how we chose to spend our money. We risk judgment and ridicule. However, the benefits of sharing go back to the theme of all my blogs which is to share all parts of our Camino experiences despite what others […]

Since you heard from me last we have walked 47.6 km, took a train for 31.5 km, and enjoyed a bit of rejuvenation. See our stats at the end of the blog. Can you feel the zen of a balanced life? Brian and I have lived by the school calendar our entire lives. We don’t […]

The 21 Pound Turkey... How to Handle Dreaded Holiday Leftovers!

December 20th, 2020
All Blogs, Recipes

In the midst of the COVID virus pandemic, we purchased a 21-pound turkey for two and it’s a good thing we love turkey leftovers! Now don’t get me wrong, I can only eat Thanksgiving (or Christmas) dinner with all of the trimmings twice at most but take that holiday turkey and divide it into dinner-sized […]

RV Slideout Upgrade

All Blogs, RV'ing

Making modifications to our CC (the name of our travel trailer is Casa del Camino or CC) can take away from the adventure, relaxation, and wine time of RV living, however, the payoff is huge. The more we have modified CC, personalized her, the more we love her. I remember wanting to sell, upgrade, and […]

It was Supposed to be an Easy Flight…

By on May 30, 2022

Have you ever heard of such a thing? Apparently, it’s nonexistent. We’re walking the Via Francigena this summer and we spent much of our 2021-2022 planning this upcoming adventure. In planning for our flight, we did all the right things. We monitored flights on Hopper, snatched them up when they were exactly what we wanted, […]

Ohio Camino Day 6

By on March 31, 2022

Loveland, Ohio, what a pretty little trail town with your quant shops, delicious restaurants, ample bathrooms, and plenty of rest benches. We love you so much we slept in, stuck around for an early lunch, Uber’d to our original lunch stop, and walked the remaining 7 of our 15 miles. The weather overnight was ugly […]

Ohio Camino Day 2

By on March 27, 2022

The sun teased us a few times today but the cold air never gave us a break. I hate trusting a forecast only to be disappointed by it. The 2nd day of walking is always harder. Momentum doesn’t come as easy as the first days adrenaline rush. The aches and pains start to kick in. […]

The Camino on YouTube

By on July 25, 2019

We haven’t been blogging this summer but we’ve been posting about two videos a week about our Camino adventures. Have you checked them out? We’d love to share our Camino with you! Go to YouTube.com/CruisinwiththeColemans to catch up on our videos. We walked about 300 kilometers on the Camino Frances from León to Santiago in […]

Meet our new YouTube Channel!

By on March 27, 2019

For some reason, we have been really nervous to start a YouTube channel. I think that watching our favorite vloggers such as Keep Your Daydream, Less Junk More Journey, and Gone With the Wynns has created some pressure that was just overwhelming. We tried shooting a video back over the summer but never pulled the […]

When Talking about Adventuring is Hard

By on October 10, 2018

This past summer was filled with the highest of highs and sadly the lowest of lows. The highs consisted of our son’s, my cousin’s wedding, and time with a breadth of my family. Sadly, what brought my extended family together was the passing of my grandfather. My grandfather was, simply stated, the most amazing man […]
