90 Days Of Action

We had been travelling for a month and all intentions of living healthy had pretty much gone out the window.

Pictures from our Epic Roadtrip of The South

On request from Parents here’s a “little” picture-update on what we’ve been up to since we landed in The States. The reason we’ve been off the grid lately is that … well we have literally been off the grid. We bought a tent and have been living in The Great Outdoors (not really we stay at camp grounds, but it still counts!) for a couple of weeks now which has been both challenging and rewarding but more on that later (maybe). Now: PICTURES!

“Ahh, sorry I don’t think maybe you cannot go to The USA today” Said the Japanese lady at the check-in counter, polite as ever.
