One year on…

A year ago today we set of into the unknown – a seven month trip around the world. We had moved out of our house, taken sabbaticals from work and only had what we could fit into a backpack each.

As it turned out, the trip was nothing less than life changing – we saw and experienced things greater than our wildest imaginations. We have come back with a greater appreciation of everyday things that we had previously taken for granted, are more ethically and environmentally conscious and have a greater desire to give back to communities both locally and abroad.

Looking back now, it is easy to forget some of the amazing things we achieved during our trip as they get eclipsed by memories of the bigger things we did. I was having a bit of a downer on the train to work recently, as I sat there thinking about my days back at work, and came up with the following list. I keep reading it to remind myself how fortunate we are to have been able to do the trip and thought I’d share it with you.
