Not All Who Wander Are Lost...

Mike and Amy travel blog
Welcome to Mike and Amy's big adventure. We hope to document as much of our lives as possible on this web site, keep you informed and share some photos along the way. It should be easy enough to navigate and see our adventures. We hope to keep it updated 1-2 times a week during our trip, so check back frequently & stay in touch!

The story: What the hell are we doing? Believe it or not, this is not a midlife crisis in any way. We've been discussing a move from the desert since we met, away from the heat and closer to family, but we didn't exactly know when it would happen. With both of us growing up in the 4-season environments of New Hampshire and Nebraska, the desert heat is finally getting to us. We thought about many places over the years, but we kept coming back to Colorado as our top pick with plenty of outdoor activities and close to family and friends. Moving to Colorado meant quitting our jobs - which meant unemployment for both of us at the same time. What better opportunity will we have to take a long vacation and see the world? And so the adventure began...

We've been planning the trip for quite a while now. Our first reservation booked was a small hotel 700 meters away from the Oktoberfest fairgrounds in Munich. The non-refundable deposit sealed the deal. We sold our house, moved into a small 2 bedroom condo in Breckenridge, Colorado and are ready to hit the road. In total, we'll be traveling about 6 months over 4 continents and through 22 countries ending our trip in January, just in time for the prime of Colorado ski season!

Through the trip, we hope to meet up with friends in all kinds of places. We are excited to visit friends in such places as London, Tianjin, and Kuala Lumpur, and we are sure to meet good friends along the way. Check out our itinerary link which we will constantly change. We want to thank everyone for their support and the many offers to crash on kitchen floors. It will be quite an experience, and we hope you enjoy the pictures and stories we have to share.

So welcome to our web site, follow along and keep in touch, and remember,
