The bad news: The actual travel experiences have come to a close.

Sadly, the Big Adventure has come to a different point in the metamorphosis that is life. Admittedly, there was a slight lull in the blogging not only because we were travelling for a few days straight over about eight time zones, but also because to write and subsequently post again would be to admit that this phase is over.

Ack!

I wasn’t ready to admit it.

I am still not ready to admit it.

However, sitting here in Monterey, California to visit my family it became time to face the inevitable truth.

The posts for the duration of our travel was approximately one per week. During three and a half months that should be 16 posts but in reality there were thirty-something posts. This still does not account for even half of all the amazing experiences we were able to enjoy, learn from, and share.

Therefore weekly posts from something about our trip will continue until further notice. Consider it a scrapbooking of sorts.

And enjoy!

To begin [or, would it be… continue? smirk]
