Well, as most of you know, I've been home for a few weeks and well, already I feel like it's time for me to hit the road again! 😊 I was meandering along my international pathway for 249 days, and loved every single MINUTE of it! I think i got homesick once (when the Packers were in the NFC Championship really made me miss my friends and family - MY TEAM!) and only got sick from the strange foods once (my last week in Peru, can you believe it!?) I met so many friends I cannot even count them all, and already I'm trying to plan some trips to see everyone! (Definitely the Netherlands, Germany, UK, Hong Kong, and Newfoundland first - see you soon Marcella, Saskia, Carolina, Samson, Darren, Jonny, Mark, Kara, and Angie!)

To say that traveling is addictive is an understatement....for me it has become a lifestyle! I cannot imagine a life without my passport, because it has opened doors and inspired ideas that I could have never imagined! I feel that I won the gold medal in the rat race at an early age, and now I've been given the opportunity to roam the planet in search of life, happiness, and F-U-N!

I hope to keep up the blog as the adventure continues, and trust me, it will! I'm moving Home Base to Belize at the end of the summer, and I'm looking forward to seeing each of you there! THANK YOU to everyone who has followed me Around The World and especially those who were sending me messages on my travels - its amazing how technology kept us together over the 58,000+ miles. (Yes, i plotted it on the google map and that's the actual mileage! Plus a few more since i probably didn't travel in straight lines!)

Taking this trip around the world has been my #1 goal for about 6 years, and i am so unbelievably lucky and blessed to have completed this journey!! I now recognize that our dreams and goals are in our hearts to motivate and guide us to our happiness. Trust Your Crazy Ideas. 😊
