For 91 Days

Exploring the world, three months at a time

For 91 Days we live in a random place around the world, giving ourselves time to really understand the culture, history, cuisine, and people. We never quite become locals, but we're definitely more than tourists.
When we're not on the road, we call Valencia, Spain home. Check out the posts from Valencia below, or use the menu to discover the other places we've visited.

Making The Famous Baumkuchen At Café Rudolph – Bad König

Baumkuchen translates into Tree Cake in English, a name it's earned for one obvious reason. If you cut open either a tree trunk or a Baumkuchen, you'll see the same thing: rings. Compared to a tree, though, the Baumkuchen's rings don't equate to a single year ... but more like 3 minutes. Still, you'll be surprised how much time, love and tradition goes into making one of them. First, allow me to tell you how I ended…

Darmstadt – I’m A Heiner

During my teenage years, I lived in Darmstadt, a city which sits in the shadow of the metropolis of Frankfurt. I had a comfortable life there, with my friends and family close by. But once I had obtained my degree, I got an itch and the irresistible compulsion to scratch it. It was a desire to break out of the life that had been laid out in front of me... and the urge was a strong one.…

Five Days In Lucerne and Did You Know … ?

Ever since our friends moved to Lucerne, we've been toying with the idea of spending an extended time in Switzerland. It’s unbelievably beautiful there and a great travel destination throughout the year. There's just one thing holding us back: Switzerland is so extremely expensive, and honestly, we just can’t afford it. If you’re a resident, you’re eligible for the half tax, which gives you 50% off tickets on trains, gondolas, funiculars, cogwheel trains and many other things…

Biking Tour Valencia: The Other Side Of The America’s Cup Harbor

When you hear blockchain, you probably think about a bunch of people crouched over their computers all day, never seeing the light of the day. That might actually be accurate, because I had a phase recently, where almost all of my waking hours were spent working on Steemit. But then the @actifit app came around, which you can download here. It records your movements from through the day and then rewards you with Actifit Tokens. There is…
