Sam: This is it.
Frodo: This is what?
Sam: If I take one more step, it’ll be the farthest away from home I’ve ever been.
Frodo: Come on, Sam. Remember what Bilbo used to say: “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.”
– The Lord of the Rings
Like Sam, this will be the furthest (and longest) I have ever been away from home. I am excited for the adventure in front of me and will greatly miss my home, my family, and my friends. David and I recognize that we are blessed and privileged to take this time and go out and travel. We depart tomorrow (Saturday, January 21) at 11:35am from Logan – fingers crossed that the snow cooperates so we can get out of this winter wonderland!
In anticipation of our travel, the blog has undergone some big changes and updates, with new sections added that include a new About section, FAQs, Itinerary/Timeline, and Packing/Gear. David has also been added as an Author, so you will start to see entries from him. More updates are needed and will be done from the road. I am excited about spending time on the blog and hope to grow it. Feel free to share the link with anyone you know who might be interested in our journey.
P.S. If you, or anyone you know is going to be in South East Asia while we are, please put us in contact! We’d love to meet up with people we “know”, or friends of friends!!
