“Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.”H. Jackson Brown
After starting careers in the military and in education, we realized we needed a break from the norm. After a few vacations together, it was clear that the travel bug had bit us both! We decided to take the trip of a lifetime, while we were young enough to enjoy the comforts of budget traveling. In 2016-2017, we travelled to 26 different countries with two very large and heavy backpacks. Since then, our desire to travel has only grown and keeps us moving forward.
When we got home, we again jumped right back into “normal” life. Stephanie returned to work in education, while I decided to start law school in Ohio. In 2018, we got married in Stephanie’s home town. We spent time with our families, enjoyed married life, but soon started to feel the itch to go again…
Then a perfect opportunity came – my law program offered me a year to study in Madrid, Spain! We thought long and hard…for about 2 minutes. In 2019, we relocated to Madrid, Spain with our lovely dog, Crixus and cat, Russell. We enjoyed living life abroad as temporary Spaniards and traveling every chance we got!
