Tom and I stood facing one another, hand in hand, enjoying the buzz of the moment. Clean and polished, a small part of us reveled in disbelief that our destination wedding and the miles we’d put in to get here were real. We had cared for one another over the previous year, enduring horrendous smells and conditions no one wishes to witness in their spouse. We’d been held up at gunpoint in Peru, endured eight visits and one root canal from a foreign dentist, vomited from moving buses, and worked demanding jobs on four different continents just to keep traveling, but the rush from the good times was enough. Traveling was enough. Having one another was enough.

We’ve done our best to make it look easy, a seamless journey cross-continental, but the truth is that it’s hard work to travel.

Travel can be hard work, but it’s a life we’re truly grateful to live. We had an incredible year full of travel and now half way across the globe we’re promptly at the start of 2017— still on the road.
