Logan and I were married on November 22, 2008 in my family home in Nevada. About a week later, we moved to his home in New Zealand. From the beginning of our marriage, and maybe even before, we knew that we wanted to travel. We had gotten used to the feeling of moving between two cities (on our breaks from university), or even between two countries. I don't think we could imagine settling down for those first 3 years of marriage. That is probably why one of the first things we decided on as a married couple was the fact that we HAD to see the world.
We decided very quickly that the most interesting area of the world, to both of us, was Europe. We then had two huge goals, to graduate from university, and then to travel through Europe. These goals seemed impossible to complete, at times, but we kept our minds focused on what we had to do to get where we wanted to go. We spent 3 years in a flat in Dunedin, planning and dreaming about our trip to Europe. When times were hard, and we were wondering what we had to eat, we would sit together and discuss how it would soon be better, with us travelling as many countries as we could. Soon enough, I graduated with a Bachelor's in Mathematics, and Logan with dual degrees in Chemistry and Law. We had finally completed our number one goal, and our minds turned to planning goal number two.
We are now only four days away from our big trip, and we still have so much to do. We are taking this time to thank all of the family and friends who helped us to get to this point. Our payment to you will hopefully be an incredible journey that you can all be a part of, through our stories, pictures, and videos. We love you all, and we hope that you will enjoy this blog as much as we will enjoy writing it for you.
