We are a family of four traveling around the world in 7 months, or approximately 210 days. We have been dreaming of this trip since Jared and I met back in 1998. We hope to learn more about this beautiful planet of ours so that we can become better citizens. We have incorporated many give back/pay it forward opportunities within our trip and that feels really good! Meeting people from around the world, making new friends, and learning so much along the way has been amazing. We are “home-schooling” our girls (ages 11 & 7) and keeping them up on their studies. We are so grateful to be able to do this–every experience leaves us changed in some way–for the better. This won’t be our last trip-this experience is inspiring us to want to travel even more!
