Our first week back to Minnesota was great. Catching up with friends and family while enjoying the local flavors of Minneapolis. We decided to frame the outfits we ended up living in for the past 2 months. It was that or burning them in the back yard and figured Saint Louis Park might have an issue with starting a fire.

Some have asked if it feels like we even left and I would say definitely yes. While the past 6 months have gone fast, we covered a huge amount of land and the things we experienced will forever be with us. We learned a lot on the trip and both feel we have grown up considerably. Not to say we were kids when we left, but I personally have a far better global perspective of our place in life. Our true goals and dreams have changed immensely and we have a much clearer plan on how to reach them.
So what’s next for Beyond The Trail? While we have realized we’re not ‘live out of a pack-backs for 6 months’ kind of people, we still love to travel. South America is calling and we are already planning some weekend get-a-ways in the future. Next comes the task of jobs. If you know anyone that needs a project manager with 10 years of experience, throw me a line. As for the blog, we’ll keep the adventures coming.
