One year after our round-the-world trip: Thoughts, lessons, struggles, and advice

Posted on February 26th, 2015 by BreAnn

Two years ago exactly from TODAY, James and I sat in an airplane at the Milwaukee airport watching workers spray the wings with de-icing agent… We were overcome by conflicting emotions as we realized we were about to leave everything familiar in our lives to embark on a year-long journey around the world. What we […]

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”?

Gaining an interesting perspective on the Vietnam War

Posted on July 17th, 2013 by BreAnn

Traveling over the past nine or so years both domestically and internationally has given me experience and perspective on what items I need most–and actually use–when I travel.
