“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.” – Jawaharial Nehru
Last week we arrived in Bali for a final few days in the place where it all began. Tomorrow we head home after over a year on the road. Back to San Francisco, real life, and the next step – whatever that may be.
No question, it feels incredibly surreal for the trip to be coming to a close. Our feelings on coming home are certainly mixed. We've loved everything about this year -- the travel, the togetherness, the freedom, the excitement inherent in spending every single day exploring an amazing new place.
It's been a wild ride, and we leave feeling so certain that despite all the initial anxieties, choosing to spend this year abroad was the right decision for us.
While we're not sure where we're going or what exactly comes next, the specialness of this year will undoubtedly live on. This experience leaves us determined to keep taking risks and putting real priority on the things in life that matter most.
It may be quite a few years before we have the opportunity to become full-time world travelers again, but our adventure is far from over.
It's been a wonderful year. Until next time.
