Where Have We Been?

So, Where Have We Been and Were are Yana and Timon Now?

Our travels started in December 2015 and we have been going strong ever since. We have enjoyed US/Canada road trips, Africa, the Middle East, Hawaii, New Zealand, Australia and several islands in the South Pacific. We most recently spent three months in Australia exploring all states except for Western Australia (we will come back for you!). After three weeks hiking in the remote wilderness of Tasmania, we are now relaxing in SE Asia.
