Let the Adventures Begin!!!!

We are so excited that our journey has begun! After a long night of packing, and double checking to make sure we weren't forgetting anything, we have made the first leg of our trip.

With backpacks attached, we departed El Paso, TX this morning, had a short layover in Austin, and have arrived in Baltimore, MD. We are staying the night in Baltimore at Scott's sister's house and will be on our way to London tomorrow.

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner with family last night in New Mexico, another wonderful dinner with family tonight in Baltimore, and toasted to the adventures that await us in the morning. Both nervous and excited, it will be hard to sleep tonight like kids on Christmas Eve. Look out world…here we come!


Finding Inspiration in Other Travelers: Our Favorite Travel Blogs

We have found lots of great advice and inspiration from other great travel blogs that have helped inspire us to take the plunge and plan our trip around the world. Hopefully our blog will inspire others to travel the world the way some of these other travel blogs have inspired us.

There was one specific blog post, written by Kim from So Many Places travel blog, that resonated with us, and ultimately helped us decide that it was okay to take a leap of faith and follow our hearts. Check it out here.

So here’s the list of some of our favorites:
