We have just one question… “When does the next adventure begin?”

Without hesitation, we’re both in agreement that we could have done another 100 days, but the realities of our current situation were also starting to sink in.  We still have a home in California that we love, family and friends that were certainly missed, and before more large-scale globetrotting commences, another substantial financial savings period will need to begin and end.

In the meantime, we have one more adventure to share in 2011.  On December 3rd, we headed to San Juan, Puerto Rico to spend two weeks in the Southern Caribbean with our moms and a good family friend.  Look for posts and photos on this trip in the coming days…
