Hey Everyone,

We are officially home and working on transitioning back into reality. We had an amazing time on our trip and we’re so happy that we had the chance to share it all with you.

As we work to unpack, we’re in job search mode and working on re-establishing our daily schedules. It’s time for us to get back to the daily grind.

Before we go, we wanted to thank you for being patient with the posts, posting was a full time job and we hope you’ve enjoyed reading about our adventures. Also, thank you to our families for bearing with us and coming to visit along the way.

A few fun facts about our trip:

  1. We visited 27 counties and had stopovers in a few more.
  2. We visited at least 3 world wonders (and found out that there are a million world wonder lists).
  3. We took so many ferry rides that we lost track in the mid 20s.
  4. We were gone for exactly 8 months.
  5. We spent roughly 1 month of our 8 months hiking.

That’s all for now…

Happy Travels,

Ryan & Melissa
