Well this should be fun… We have no idea where to begin, but we figured we’d start here. On January 8th 2017, we’ll be embarking on a 6 month backpacking trip, leaving from YYZ (Toronto) to the Philippines, and making our way towards Europe in the spring. We know where we’re starting, and we know that our last stop will be the Azores Islands of Portugal, and that we’ll be celebrating our 1 year anniversary on June 25th in Sao Miguel. Everything in between is up in the air… which is amazing because that’s where the good stuff happens. There is so much magic in the unknown. The unknown is both scary and exhilarating. It’s going to be wild ride, and we’ll be documenting our journey into the unknown by combining our love of photography and writing, and sharing it with you – our readers, our clients, and our family and our friends.
This will be our second big trip together, but our first as husband and wife. The first time we traveled together, we got to explore Thailand and Vietnam. There was no shortage of inspiration there. We witnessed Chiang Mai’s famous lantern festival, and got engaged the next morning in the most perfect little bohemian Thai coffee shop. We went on to take many many more buses, planes and trains, discovering the cost and highlands of Vietnam, drinking all the coffee we could find along the way.
We can hardly get through the next few months waiting to fly out, but remind ourselves every day how important it is to stay present. There is still much work to be done, and planning to be made before our grand adventures begin. We just though we’d let you know what we’ll be up to this winter to beat the cold!
Here’s a few photos from our last adventure!
