Our Around the World Adventure!
We quit our jobs, sold our belongings, and moved out of our townhouse in Atlanta to embark on this journey! Fed up with only having a few weeks of vacation a year and a whole world that we wanted to see, we decided to do it now while in our early 30’s instead of waiting until retirement.
This section of our site is devoted to our Around the World adventure so that you can follow along, and perhaps be inspired to follow your dreams too!
