We’ve been on the road for fourteen months, yet it seems like we just left last week.
Neeley and I are still on the road, and still taking pictures, but a little behind with updates on our blog. We are back in the USA for a bit to visit family and friends, and spend some time planning out a few last minute adventures.
If you haven’t checked out our instagram feed, or our facebook page, please check them out for a snapshot into our travel, and a preview while we work on getting our trips through Italy, Sri Lanka, Bali, Australia, New Zealand, England, and Ireland online.

Krakow doesn’t show up as a common destination for Americans, but I wanted to go. My mother’s side of the family is Polish and live in the large Polish community in South Chicago.

Neeley and I are in Perth this week, experiencing Australian friendliness for the first time.

We woke up early in Dresden so that we could catch our short, two-hour long train ride to Prague. Prague was going to be a new experience for both of us, and we were looking forward to it. Years ago we discussed visiting, but we never managed to make the trip. Since then Prague has gained a reputation as a major tourist destination, so we were wondering what type of impact that would have on our experience.
