Working via RDP Wherever I Go

One of the things that I learned over the course of the last year on the road is that it is hard to get a lot of work done.  Since your computer is typically only turned on when at a stop or hotel along the way, it can make it hard if you are working …

Enjoying US Netflix at Home

While I love the selection of shows that are provided by Netflix in my country, there are times that I wish that I lived in the United States.  They have a larger selection of shows and movies that I would like to watch that are not available here, and I get a little frustrated by …

Installed MovieBox on my iPhone

Since I will be spending a bit of time on the road for the next few days, I have been installing a few games and apps on my iPhone to keep me entertained while I am gone.  I know there will be a few layovers on my trip, so I wanted to make sure that …

Traveling to Vietnam in a Few Months

This year has been pretty busy for me.  I had hoped to get a lot more traveling in, but life got in the way and unfortunately that didn’t happen.  But we are coming up on a new year, so I have decided to start looking at making my travel plans for 2016. One of the …

Looking at a Potential Investment Property

While I certainly don’t have a large portfolio of investment properties, I am always keeping an eye out for a good deal.  I scour the paper, the internet and keep my ear to the ground to listen to all of the chatter.  What I am looking for is good value, and sometimes that can take …
