  1. You have certainly done a lot of traveling! Your pictures are wonderful. I especially love the Mt. Cook lake in New Zealand. I’m glad to meet you here on Sunday Stills. I especially love that you have invited other people to share their gray stories with you.

      1. Thanks, and enjoy your travels when you are able to be off and away. You seem awfully young to be able to get away to so many places. Have you read the book Plunge about the young couple who takes off in a small yacht and start sailing around the world. Her first name is Liesbet. If you haven’t read it, it’s well worth the read. 🙂

      2. Well thank you, we are both in our 30’s. We budget well and are money savvy. Which is why we wanted to create a blog for others who want to do the same! And I have not heard about that book, that sounds like a very interesting read, thank for that. We have tossed around that idea before funny enough…we do worry about being stuck in the middle of an ocean. Just us. Big waves. We got nervous and retracted that idea. For now. Haha

      3. I think you are super wise, even if things go well there are all kinds of issues. You really should read the book. She documented everything. Meanwhile, your blog is a great jumping off place for your book (s). I wish you the best. Meanwhile, I have a challenge that I think would help you prepare for your book as well – Writer’s Quotes Wednesday. I weave my travel stories around quotes and a topic. If the weekly topic appeals to you and fits with your travels, the quotes will be effective when you write your book. 🙂
