September 24, 2014

Max at the Burroughs Street Tot Lot in Jamaica Plain Cerulean cloud-peppered skies, electric orange shades shimmering in the trees, crisp happy air, and the fine grit on a freshly picked Cortland apple. Fall in New England. This is what life’s about. After our short but sweet stint in urban penthouse-living in Montreal, the sight [...]

The Insta-Home Challenge: Annville, PA

September 13, 2013

Sorry folks, this title is waaaay misleading. Our summer home was neither instant nor a challenge for us. Instead, it was a beautifully restored, rustic Revolutionary War-era dwelling with actual 250-year-old log construction details, nestled in the lush, bucolic countryside outside of Hershey, PA. It was a home that was sweetly prepared to welcome our [...]

August 13, 2013

Often, people are incredulous that we travel full-time, as a family, on tour with The Lion King. What a logistical nightmare, they say. Where do you live? How do the kids go to school? Where do you call home? Does it ever get lonely? No, we say. We travel with plenty of people who are [...]

Count those holiday blessings

December 31, 2012

Forgive us, friends. We’ve been so quiet on 3 For The Road. Actually, I know I must forgive me. I’m hard on myself; the hyper-critical, perfectionist part of me rues the day we thought to start a travel/theater/parenting blog while moving every month with a toddler and a cat, while being full-time parents. While simultaneously [...]

A day in sunny Sausalito

November 24, 2012

We do not live a conventional lifestyle, by any stretch of the imagination.  While Ang and I embrace this concept and the excitement that travel brings, we are constantly trying to take stock of the effects of this lifestyle on our Max.  I mean, he is barely two.

November 15, 2012

We’ve introduced you to our cozy garden apartment in San Francisco. Now, onto the neighborhood! Because of its geographical location, The Mission is insulated from the fog and wind from the west, creating a microclimate that is on average 10 degrees warmer than the rest of the city. “It’s always sunny in the Mission,” the [...]
