I’ve had a strong desire to travel for so long that I can’t even pinpoint its origin. Not only do I not know where the desire came from, I also have never had a clear idea of where travel was going to lead me, or my life.
Did you know that Japan has a ridiculous number of Kit Kat flavors scattered throughout the country? Some are only available in specific regions, and most are seasonal treats. I’m very serious about these Kit Kats, and have been determined to try as many flavors as possible since we booked our flights to Tokyo.
Eight years ago Jarrell got his passport so that he could study abroad in Tokyo. The Anime style and illustration techniques seemed like something he had to see in person, but before he could even submit his application, he started to doubt his dream. He didn’t go to college to become a starving artist, and that was the only outcome he could see from an Art Degree.
This time last year we were smoking weed in Amsterdam, preparing for Jarrell’s birthday, when I asked him what he wanted to do in 2016. At that time, making his birthday trip to Amsterdam seemed like the greatest feat, so it was really a question of how on Earth do I top that?
I’ve been slipping on updating my blog with our travels, as its lately become my diary for life thoughts. I know that many of you follow me on social media, and I cover a lot of our journey there, however, for those of you who don’t, here’s a recap of our month in Thailand.
I love surprises, but I’m a control freak, so its difficult to actually sneak anything by me. So I was thoroughly impressed with Jarrell when he spontaneously announced a quick trip to the Phi Phi Islands. We were literally grocery shopping on a Tuesday evening when he asked if I wanted to go to Koh Phi Phi tomorrow morning.
This is the most excited I have ever been about anything.
As of today I have been traveling the world for 871 days, or two years and five months. You probably only know me as the girl that’s honeymooning indefinitely with her fine husband, but that hasn’t always been my life. Three years ago, when we were living in our hometown in Ohio, I had no idea how to create this lifestyle, but luckily I didn’t let that stop me.
After Istanbul, we decided to head to Asia, continuing our journey around the world. Along the way, I learned some tips and tricks that may be beneficial for others planning a trip to India, so I decided to share them with my readers. Here’s everything I wish I’d known for our trip to India.
I’ve always wanted to bring my travels to others around the world, while understanding that everyone cannot physically join me, and many do not even desire to visit a bunch of countries.
So, I found a fun middle ground that allows everyone to participate in my journey, by literally tasting my travels.
