Globetrotting In Europe – 2016

In September of 2016, we took a leap and left America for the first time. We traveled to 8 countries in 17 days with nothing more than what we could carry on our backs.  What follows is our basic itinerary for the trip.  We’ll also be writing several blog posts about the actual trip along with notes from the 8 months of planning.  As those get released we will link appropriately.
