“Not all those who wander are lost.”
We are back in the United States after our incredible 90 day around the world trip. It was a once in a lifetime life-changing experience. We have flown around the world from east to west. We have traveled through 3 continents (Asia, Europe and South America) as well as the Middle East. We visited 9 countries, 2 Emirates, 2 special administrative regions and countless other cities, towns and villages. We have spoken Arabic, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French, Chinese, Japanese, Malay, Urdu, Hindi and English We have tasted the world's meats, poultry, curries, pastas, noodles, fruits and vegetables. We have seen its people at work and play. We have stood before some of the world's most beautiful wonders as well as witnessed some of its most abject poverty. We have watched Catholics, Christians, Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus and Taoists at worship. We have crossed its borders by plane, boat, car, train, helicopter and by foot. We walked on its snow-capped mountains as well as its scorched, hot deserts. We have viewed the most spectacular sunsets as well as the most torrential rainfalls. We have thought about what we can learn from the world as well as what we can teach it. And yet in all of the diversity we have experienced, it is very easy to see how similar we all are in terms of our basic needs, desires, joys and sufferings. We thank you for following us in our travels and sincerely hope that it will inspire you to pursue the journeys of which you have always dreamed. Whether simple or extravagant, just do it, because life is truly too short! And remember even though our trip has ended, our journey has just begun!
