Why do we travel?

Is that even a question? Or better yet… is there even an answer?

The world is a big place….


How big? Sure, we can measure the distance in miles, the oceans and continents can be counted with ease and with a steady mind you could even name off quite a few countries.

But what about everything in the in-between?

 The trip…so far! 

So without a computer, I won’t write too much but I wanted to get some photos out there for those who are following along on our trip! It’s been a joy so far, and we aren’t even a week in!

So, let’s begin…

Alright everyone, tomorrow at this time we will be in the air and on our way to our first stop, Boston MA. I have been to Boston a few times but this will be Paul’s first. We have a good amount of time to get out and walk around, as we are there for one overnight with plenty of extra time to explore!

The question…

While we were talking, I was recently asked by a co-worker and friend after she had read my last post, Faces, “Do you believe in God?”

My answer came as quickly as she asked it… “Absolutely… Don’t you?” I asked, but already knew what her answer would be just by the way she asked it.

“I’m an atheist, but truly believe in a ‘higher’ power”.

I’m not a very “quick thinking” guy when it comes to words while being put on the spot, my words come more naturally to me when I get the chance to sit down and write them out.

It wasn’t until after our conversation that I thought of what I wished I would have said.

“How can you not?” is simple as it sounds.

I have long been fascinated with everything England, largely due to Queen Elizabeth I, Princess Diana and the Royal Family. And now that it’s 2012, my current love affair with this iconic nation only grew, along with countless others because of the beautiful Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine Middleton. With the Royal Wedding a year earlier, the excitement of it all was sure to still be in the air, and it was!

Seattle, Part 2

After a great first day exploring this fantastic city, I had another good night’s sleep under my belt and was ready to head out again on what was a clear and glorious day.

I had heard from a friend on Facebook that a trip to Bainbridge was very much worth it, so with no more convincing needed, I headed down to the waterfront and bought my ticket!


Anytime I get to be on the water is what I call a perfect day.

Sensational Seattle

After my visit back in Wisconsin, I decided to treat myself to a little “added” adventure, so I narrowed it down to Seattle, Washington.

Paul was still in Europe and I had a couple extra days left before heading back to work so I headed west on my first real solo trip. I was super excited. I had never really gone anywhere new by myself before, so this was going to be a first on many levels!
