Did you have any concerns before you embarked on the trip?
Sure we did, I think we both had concerns about whether we were making ‘the right’ decision, especially as many of our friends were purchasing houses, getting work promotions and making other big and more conventional life choices. But, after a year on the road we can both safely say that it is one of the best decisions we have ever made in our lives. We’ve had a chance to see so many amazing places and meet wonderful people. It has truly been an experience of a lifetime.
