Posted on December 30th, 2013 by BreAnn

“You are SO LUCKY!” We hear this phrase repeated constantly throughout our travels… from family and friends, people we run into in different countries, and comments on facebook and blog posts.  Hmmm… “Lucky”? Folks, IT’S NOT LUCK. The word “luck” in the dictionary is defined as, “Success or failure apparently brought by chance rather than through one’s […]

Posted on December 12th, 2013 by BreAnn

So, I’m sure this news comes quite unexpected, but James and I are back in the United States for the holidays!  James flew back on Wednesday, December 4th, and I just arrived yesterday, December 11th.

Swimming with sharks… no kidding!

Posted on December 9th, 2013 by BreAnn

One of the exciting things about Cape Town, South Africa, is you have the opportunity to cage dive with Great White Sharks! Seriously… they drop you into the freezing cold ocean in a metal cage, toss mashed up fish into the water, and sharks come and swim around you, right past the cage, and sometimes […]

Relax time with friends in Sydney, Melbourne, and Adelaide

Posted on November 12th, 2013 by BreAnn

By the time I hit Sydney, Australia (on September 11th), I was ready to CHILL OUT for awhile. Not only was I “travel-exhausted” in general from the past seven months, but the week prior I had been staying at hostels on my own and had quite a few late nights out with hostel friends (you […]

Posted on November 7th, 2013 by BreAnn
