Today marks the one year anniversary of the beginning of our trip. To commemorate our journey we thought we’d share some of the highlights so far. It was a difficult task to pick just a few in each category because it has been an amazing year, but these are some of the standouts.
So much of traveling is the journey between point A and point B. Here are some of our favorite journeys.
