Dreaming of my next adventure

Well it has definitely been a very full on four years with lots more plans to travel in the works for the next few years. Although, there probably won’t be any more big month and year long adventures for us coming up in the next few years, but we will definitely be fitting in a decent trip somewhere in the world each year while still exploring our own backyard.
