After a month-long meandering tour of the US, we are finally ready to leave the country in the morning. Perhaps the word “ready” is a bit strong, but we’ll figure out whatever we’re missing as we go along.
The last few weeks have been extremely fun and interesting already. We worked our way across the country, coast-to-coast and up and down, visiting family and friends. It gave the effect of sampling different lives a day or two at a time. Over the last month, we got to be a newly engaged couple planning a wedding, new parents, seasoned parents, and retirees living in small mountain towns, big cities, open plains, lush forests, and the island lifestyle. It has all been great input as we are working out what we want life to look like for us when we get back in a year.
We owe a big “thank you” to all of our friends and family who gave us a place to sleep, food to eat, and tours of all of the places they call home. It was great seeing you all, and we’re glad we have you in our lives.
First stop on the tour is Panama of which I know exactly 3 things: Panama hats, Panama Jack, and Panama Canal. I expect my knowledge of the country to increase dramatically in the near future. We’ll let you know!
