There are a few people we've met who have been curious about how we're able to afford our travels. They're almost suspicious about how we can do it. We joke that perhaps it would make more sense if we had won the lottery: windfalls are sometimes easier to accept than budgeting.

While in South Africa, Tim and I had a problem we've never encountered before. (And by problem, I mean "something of absolutely no consequence whatsoever.") When people we met asked where in the world we would be traveling to next, we didn't have an answer for them.

Tim and I had the pleasure of speaking on a panel of "travel experts" last night at Boston's Meet, Plan, Go event! It was a nationwide conversation with meetings taking place in 12 other cities with a goal of not only encouraging more folks to take a career break and travel the world, but to show them it can be done!
