This is our 100th blog post (so WordPress tells me) so I thought it fitting to recap what we’ve been up to since we started this little adventure. Our first post was the day we sold our condo and quit our jobs. Now we’ve been on the road for 111 days, visited 3 countries, walked 240 miles, drove 11,000 kilometers and seen 3 wonders of the world. We’ve hung out with some awesome people from all over the world and enjoyed countless delicious meals and local brews. We’ve stumbled upon everything from a hip-hop festival in the streets of Beijing to the Dali Lama in a park in Brisbane. We’ve snorkeled in the Great Barrier Reef and climbed the Great Wall of China.
Along the way there has been lots of singing, laughing and dancing as well as a few tears and even a fight or two. We are definitely getting the hang of life on the road and what it is we want from this experience. Sometimes I get a bit overwhelmed with the idea that this is it – the trip of a lifetime and what if I waste it? But then I breathe and “just cruise” as they say on Waiheke. And I think back to all we have done and what more there is ahead and realize this is it and it is even more amazing than I ever dreamed it could be. Cheers to 100 more posts and all the experiences we will have on our way there!
