The Adventure Begins

One week from today we will load the contents of our apartment into a truck and leave New York City.  The 18-year-old girl who first wandered around the city in amazement can hardly believe that the end of my time here has come.  My heart is heavy with the weight of the goodbyes we’ve been saying, the dismantling of our life here and the thought of leaving the city we will always love, but it’s also full of excitement for the possibilities that lie ahead.  Now there is only forward.

Welcome to our blog!  We’re going to be using this as a way to keep friends and family informed and included as we travel around Europe for at least 6 months, as well as a forum for discussing our reasons for taking this trip and the actual costs and logistics associated with our travels.  We have a flight booked to Dubrovnik, Croatia on October 10th, so that leaves us exactly a month to drive out to Seattle, store our stuff at Jared’s parents’ house and finish the preparations for our trip.  We hope you enjoy vicariously traveling with us, and hopefully we may even inspire you to take a trip of your own.

Strap in folks, here we go…

    Clark and I are so happy we can follow your adventure on line. We are excited that we will see you in Seattle before you depart and hopefully will visit you in Europe next Spring. Looking forward to seeing you soon.
    Love, Linda (Mom to JaredA)
