This is a question we’ve asked ourself countless times. Until August 30th of last year, our answer was “after the wedding”. Our wedding was always our fork in the road.
“Let’s just get through the wedding and we’ll take a look at it.”
Once the wedding was over, we had no more excuses. We’d saved the money, had a flexible lease, and had the support of our families. It became clear that “now” needed to be the answer.
We’re so happy to announce that as of May 20th, we will be vagabonds. We have quit our jobs, sold our stuff, and will be living out of backpacks.
We will spend June and July in Europe. Camping in Iceland, a family wedding in Hungary, outdoor adventures with Anyu (Gabi’s mom) in Austria, and meeting friends in Croatia. Budapest will be our home base, spending as much time as we can with Gab’s family. Following that, the majority of the next year will be spent in Africa, India, Southeast Asia, and the South Pacific.
So yeah. Big news! We decided to start the blog to help us document our journey, connect with friends and family worldwide, meet like-minded strangers, and maybe help others along the way. We’ll be publishing our itinerary in the coming weeks in the hopes some of you will join us along the route.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us so far – our families, friends, bosses, coworkers, REI staffers (we’ve spent a lot of time there…), and all the strangers who have offered us encouragement. We can’t wait to get started!
