Our trip to Europe unquestionably had a profound impact on our lives. It changed our perspective on the world and, of course, left us wanting more. The next major destination on our radar was Australia. By this time (2011), though, we were facing a bit of a conundrum – we both had full time jobs. This meant that we had money, but were constrained with time. We ultimately decided to go to Australia even though we could only spend just a little over two weeks away. We realized that if we were concerned about abbreviated timelines during our future trips, we would probably never have the opportunity to travel again (or so we thought…).
Australia was an amazing time. Even though we only had a taste of this vast country over the 17 days we were there, we knew we could always visit again. And next time, with a camper van!
In the summer of 2012 we got married and after months of wedding planning, we were ready for some rest and relaxation once it was all said and done. We both love British Columbia during the summer, so rather than jet out of the province, we decided to spend the week after our wedding on the Gulf Islands (Galiano Island and Salt Spring Island to be precise).
Several months after our miniature honeymoon on the Gulf Islands, we took off for Belize for our bigger honeymoon. We spent two weeks travelling around this small, but diverse country. Our first week was spent seaside on Ambergris Caye while our second week was spent inland near San Ignacio.
The scenery and people made us absolutely fall in love with this little Commonwealth treasure. Our first taste of Central America was truly fantastic and left us craving more.
As we now prepare for our biggest adventure yet, we can only hope that it is as exciting and rewarding as our previous trips.
