We are 2 English citizens who live in California. After much planning and some angst we are taking a break from reality and taking a trip around the world. One car is sold and the house is rented but before kicking off in Central America in mid June we are driving through Oregon to visit friends in Seattle, taking a quick trip to see family in S Carolina and then we are off!
434 days on the road and now we are home!
