Emily and Jonathan's Trip of A Lifetime

Trip of a Lifetime

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -- Mark Twain

Hi, welcome to our home page. On February 13th my wife and I (bios) finished packing up our lives in New York City and embarked on a journey to circle the globe. Since we can’t really get a feel for the cultures, arts and sciences that other people embrace, in just a few weeks of annual vacation, we’ve decided to pull up our stakes and become citizens of the world, exploring and adventuring while trying to take in and understand the true global community.

A lot of people think we’re a little crazy for packing up like this with plans vague enough that our one year voyage could easily expand by months or even years. Conservatively we expect to be gone a year, but the truth is we’d love to visit every country on earth, something beyond the financial scope we’ve planned thus far. No matter what, this trip should touch on all seven continents and about 40 countries including Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, Micronesia, Fiji, New Guinea, Borneo, Uruguay, the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Bhutan, Nepal, Tibet, China, Mongolia, Korea, Japan, Russia, Turkey, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Greece, Italy, France, Jordan, Egypt, Israel, Eritrea, Spain, Portugal, Andorra, Western Africa, the UK and Iceland.

Like the majority of people we’re not ultra luxury travelers although we do love to indulge when we can, but we’re not really backpackers either. We'll walk the middle of that road with the occasional leaning in one direction or the other - which always adds to the adventure of adventure travel. While our trip kicked off in Argentina we’ll be visiting every continent on the journey

Transportation will include just about every form of conveyance imaginable depending upon opportunity and expense. From airline, to cruise ships, to small boats, trains, buses, horseback, camel, elephant, motorbike, bicycle, helicopter and of course foot.

Along the ways we’ll be writing our travel guide "Planning the Trip of A Lifetime" and indulging in some of our favorite things, including world cuisine, drink, and activities such as mountain climbing, trekking, scuba diving, fishing, rafting and of course just laying out on a beach here and there and letting ourselves be pampered.

This site will allow everyone to follow our trip, share in our daily thoughts, see some of the pictures and hear about some highlights from both the beaten path and the path less traveled.

We hope that appeals to all of those with an adventurous soul and the drive to experience what the world has to offer.
