Our New Life Of Travel Starts Today

About 360 days ago, we made the decision to follow our dream and sell everything we own to build a new life of traveling long term.

THAT DAY HAS COME!

It’s bittersweet. It’s hard to be excited about it; we are exhausted from all the preparations and late nights of visiting all our favourite people before we leave.   It’s incredibly overwhelming to see friends and not knowing when we will see them next.Today is also one month of my dad passing away. My mom articulated the feeling we both share so well; its an important new year for both of us, we are living our lives in a new way, in a new, unfamiliar chapter. It’s a new chapter of great possibilities. I am so blessed we spent so much time as a family back over those last weeks with my dad.

Now, Troy and I sitting at the airport and the wave of emotions is all sinking in.

We look at one another and reassuringly smile.

WE DID IT!

WE MADE THIS AMAZING DREAM HAPPEN!

We are both getting extremely emotional now so before I sign off we can’t say enough to so many of you.

THANK YOU for supporting us, reading and rooting for us to keep on going and make our dream happen every step of the way.

A special thanks to our friends and fellow travellers Marla and Kasha, who allowed us to stay in their home the last month in between our house sale and before our departure. Check out Kasha’s awesome project at theglobalsunriseproject.com

Where are we going first?

Thailand!

Why Thailand? We are often asked.

Well, there is a great reason why, other than it’s a beautiful place to go. We’ll let you know once we arrive and get settled…

Happy New Year!!
