About Us

We are Carla Beach and Simcha Weinstein, and our passion for travel stems from our love of encountering new people, exploring different places, and immersing ourselves in diverse cultures. Travel offers us the opportunity to see the world through an entirely new lens. The privilege of traveling broadens our horizons and presents experiences that would likely not come our way if we remained in our current life in the United States.

Our Story

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.”  Mark Twain

As we travel across Europe, we consider ourselves citizens of the world. We left our home in Asheville, NC - after giving away and selling almost everything—and what we have with us (two bags each) is essentially all we now own. Wherever we are, for as long as we're there, that place becomes our home.

Of course, we miss our friends and families, especially our kids and grandkids. They will forever keep our hearts wide open! But, we also believe that we are creating opportunities for those close to us. After all, if you have a place to stay with people who love to travel, what's keeping you from making the journey?

We are falling in love every day - with new and beautiful places, and with each other. Come join us.

The Wonder of Wandering

As Mark Twain famously wrote, “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.” As we travel across Europe, we are both homeless and citizens of the world. We left our home in Asheville, NC, after giving away and selling almost everything. What we have with us (two bags each) is essentially all we now own. Wherever we go, for as long as we're there, that place becomes our home. Right now, we're spending the next five weeks in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, after already visiting Guanajuato, San Miguel, Querétaro, and Sayulita. This fall, we'll be spending time in Prague, Greece, and Spain.

When Carla and I go abroad, we tend towards slow travel. We like to take our time and truly “live into” the places we're visiting. Yes, we love seeing incredible sites—architectural marvels, ruins, and museums—but for us, the town and its people provide an equally amazing visual and cultural experience. We simply enjoy being among the people and their culture as we walk and explore the streets.

So, here we are, traveling around Europe in the way that we love. With this website, we want to share our insights and experiences of the places and people we visit. It's a kind of sojourn, and we're excited to share it with you. We'll try to keep it fun and entertaining while sharing any insights we gather along the way, hoping they help you plan your next journey. Thanks for coming along!

“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.” – Anthony Bourdain
