Today is the last day of work (at least for me) and the end of a chapter. It’s been a chapter of glory and struggle, and more than anything else, of how we’ve come together to make this huge decision and go and do something awesome.

So tomorrow, the packing, preparation, and training begins for what will be a seven month trip around Europe. We’ll have backpacks and cameras, rail passes and books, apps, maps and (probably) plenty of naps. As we prep, I’ll be updating to show the hacks and tricks we’ve learned as we get ready, before we get on a plane and say goodbye to the normal we’ve been swimming in or the last eighteen months.

I’m so excited. I can’t wait to begin. So I’m going to head off now and get stuck in.
