Look Out World…Here We Come!
We have told most of our friends and family the big news of our travels, but we know there are some we could have missed. Drum roll please…
Dave and I are traveling the world starting in January 2013!
We’ve resigned our positions at work, we’ve sold our condo, managed to stuff a storage unit full of boxes and have a great friend allowing us to crash at his house until we leave. As of this week, we have 15 days left of work before we spend the holidays back in Chicago.
We have traveled a lot since we met and have successfully managed to come out a better couple after each experience. It helps that we like to travel in the same way and have found we don’t need much besides a hill or mountain to climb and a good beer or glass of wine to celebrate.
The trip has been a life dream for both of us and probably for different reasons. I’m really looking forward to having the time and space to reflect on the next 2, 5, 10 years and explore creative interests that I haven’t had time for in the last few years – all while seeing how others across the world live their lives and find their sources of happiness. I’ll let Dave write his own narrative in an upcoming post on why he wants to take this big trip.
We’re so grateful for being able to travel like this and know that we’ll grow in numerous ways because of it. There is so much planning left and we will use this site as a place to keep our friends and family informed of the progress we’re making and the fun we’re having.
Our first stop on the round the world trip is Maui (because why not??)!
Stay tuned for plenty more updates as the planning continues!
