Where Have We Been?
Our travels started in December 2015 and we are still going strong. We spent three months driving around the US and Canada in the middle of the winter; before setting off to Africa and the Middle East for one year. After a quick stop to visit family, we were off again in year two visiting New Zealand, Australia, and the South Pacific. In 2018 we have been traveling in Southeast Asia. Bali, Indonesia has become our home base, while also traveling around Malaysia, Philippines, Cambodia, Thailand, and other parts of Indonesia.
Where are we going next?
Indonesia will be home for us for the rest of 2018 and early 2019. Our next big adventure will be in Indonesia, visiting the islands of Lombok, Flores, and Java. Our base is in Ubud, Bali, so if you are coming through be sure to let us know!
