About the Gnome

For the over six years, I’ve been traveling with a gnome figurine that I got as a wedding favor. The couple wanted the gnomes to go far and away and visit many places so they could vicariously share in the experience. My gnome has been the farthest.

Honky the gnome

His name is Honks. He prefers the cold, like his Scandinavian ancestors (I’m not sure, do they make Big Lots gnomes in Scandinavia?), but he’s been everywhere with me from Europe to Africa to Asia to many corners of the United States.

If you know want to know how he ended up broken and glued back together, check out the Bellagio brunch story.

Through our adventures, we’ve learned a lot about cultures, people, and the world we live in. And we want to share that with you, which is how this website came to be. As an expat and traveler, I want to share my wealth of information in the hopes that it will inspire, inform, and amuse.
