With all the hurricane chatter from the East Coast, and American election chatter from everywhere else, we somehow skipped over the fact that this weekend marked one year of travel abroad for us! We’ve made it to Australia, which is another big marker for me personally. Upon stepping off the plane, I have officially visited all seven continents. Hooray!
We considered doing a year-long roundup of sorts to commemorate the moment, but figured we’ll save it for the very end, which unfortunately is creeping up on us. We found a great deal on a flight home in February and have bought the tickets, so we’ve had to come to terms with the fact that even though it’s still a few months away, there is now an official end to our journey.
The rest of our trip will be spent in Australia and New Zealand. More than a year ago we promised my mother we’d meet her ‘down-under’ for her birthday, which is next week, so here we are.
We’re going all in and are hitting up spots from the vineyards of Western Australia to the deserts of the Outback all the way to the beaches of Sydney and the wilderness of Tasmania.
After a year of travel through places where the amenities of home aren’t always available, we are ecstatic to be drinking tap water, flushing toilet paper and showering with HOT water again!
We still have a lot of adventuring left to do, so stay tuned, and thanks for keeping up with us this year!
