This is my first post! Welcome friends.
I guess we’re doing this thing! We are just 5 weeks away from leaving the US and travelling the world. Our trip should last about a year. We may run out of money though! Budgeting for a year of unknowns is difficult. We have a rough estimate for most of our travel dates, but we are keeping it loose.
Where are we going you ask? Let me tell you!
- Cairo, Egypt
- South Africa (Johannesburg to Cape Town)
- Borneo (North Sumatra)
- Australia (Perth to Sydney)
- New Zealand (Christchurch to Auckland)
- South America (Starting in Buenos Aires then tbd)
- Central America
I am new to blogging, and brand new to backpacking. Most of my travel has been vacations here and there between work schedules. This blog will be a way for me to remember our trip and remember the people we meet. I hope it helps you with your own travel plans or planning your around the world trip. If you are a friend or family member please comment and let me know if you are reading my posts. Also, I miss you!
My husband is the reason for this trip. Andrew is the big dreamer! He has wanted to travel the world for years and always dreamed of backpacking country to country. I love to travel, but I enjoy going to places for a few weeks at a time. Then I like to return home, to my stuff, my bed, my friends, and “normal” life. This trip is a BIG leap for me. Living out of a backpack for a year?! Does that sound fun? It doesn’t sound fun, but I hope it is! So get ready for the ups and downs of our trip around this beautiful world!
