Our Biggest Adventure

Around the World in 361 Days

After saving and planning for 2 years, we packed our bags and took off in October of 2018 for the grandest adventure (check out a snapshot here). We started in Paris and spent the winter holidays making our way through Europe. We perused every Christmas market we could find through Geneva, Zurich, and Berlin. New Years was epic back to back nights of fireworks in Prague. But in February we thought our adventure was over when Carl’s passport got stolen in Athens. Luckily, we were able to extend our stay and get a new passport before heading to South East Asia. A bit wiser, we decided to slow down our travel with a month in Vietnam, and 2 months each in Japan and Bali, Indonesia. Curious about what how we packed? Check out our packing list and gear list.

La Sagrada Familia
One thing we love about Spain is how restaurants are typically open really late. We find Los Bellota, due to their strong online presence (good job guys!), and are delighted
Seville on the other hand, feels like the quieter, pious and dignified middle sister. She is a gorgeous historic city full of churches and lined with orange trees, and while
Ah Spain, there are so many things to love about you: thick hot drinking chocolate and churros for breakfast, tapas for all day snacking, and all the lush parks throughout
Padrão dos Descobrimentos, Lisbon, Portugal
Lisbon is one of our favorite cities so far: decadent seafood to 5 EUR hand pulled noodles, pastéis de natas and espresso any time of day, and literally breath-taking views
Igreja do Carmo, Porto, Portugal
In contrast to France, there is no break in service for places in Portugal, which was helpful as we arrived late afternoon. Restaurants are also open much later than back
