We left in January 2016 on a yearlong trip around the world. We visited 25 countries in South America, Africa, Europe and Asia.
We have always loved traveling and both had a round-the-world trip on our bucket list. As we got closer to having a family, buying a home and building a life together, we realized that there was a lot we wanted to see first. When we decided to move out of Chicago, it seemed like as good a time as ever to take a break. What started out as a monthlong trip grew to a year long, round-the-world adventure.
