Came back and toured for 5 weeks.
We managed to just make enough money to backpack through Central America on a shoestring budget.(Which has always been our favorite way to travel).
The timing wasn't the most ideal for us (St. Patricks to Easter is usually when the season starts). But doing this trip was something Katie and I felt we had to do.
So we went...
We traveled Central America for a few reasons.
1. Take a break from touring.
2. Rest. Reflect. Write. Dream.
3. Experience culture.
4. Learn some spanish.
5. Look for land.
6. Work on our tans (just kidding)...
We were lucky to achieve everything in some way shape or form. Even if it didn't come in the way we thought.
Overall, I'm glad we did it.
It was, at times.
But being on that Gringo Trail was exhausting.
The people, culture, land. Beautiful.
But one thing Katie and I are seeing (the more we travel) is that times they are a changing... People speak about how way different it was 'back' in the 90's...
It's a beautiful lake with villages (accessible by taxi boat) three volcanoes and great views.
I thought about it. In the last 5 years we've done.
5 US Tours (covering 48 states) and 4 continents (backpacking 20 countries).
Are we starting to feel it?
Is it worth it?
I look back at the last decade and never would have thought I (or we) would be doing what we're doing.
I want people to know that Katie and I are happy and extremely grateful; but more importantly, that we're not perfect; in fact far from it.
Doing what we're doing takes everything we got. We could not do it without our faith and our friends.
Thanks for supporting us.
Here's to the next decade!
