Read Joyce’s memoir of our 14-month global adventure!
In 2011, we were approaching 40 and had been married for almost ten years. From the day we met, we’d been talking about “traveling more”, but in ten years we hadn’t advanced very far toward that dream and it had become more of a nagging dissatisfaction than an inspiring goal. We gradually came to the somewhat obvious realization that “traveling more” wasn’t just going to happen, we would need to decide what exactly we wanted, make a plan and commit to a lot of work.
In early 2012, we made a decision to go all in on their travel dream, sell everything, and hit the road for an open-ended period of time.
On March 31, 2013, we locked up our house one last time and left on a tour that would take us to 23 countries and 23 U.S. states over the next 14 months.
