We had some amazing experiencing this year from playing with baby tigers, to celebrating my birthday in the jungle of Borneo, to seeing orangutans and proboscis monkeys, to scuba diving!  My goal was to visit 50 countries by my 50th birthday and I made it.  Our favorite country??  Nepal!  Packed with history, culture, religion and tradition.  We can't wait to share these photos with you.

 

Where will 2014 take us? 

So far, scheduled trips are - Philippines, Australia, and Japan!

 

Happy New Year to each and every one of our blog readers.  Thank you for coming along on our world adventure.  And keep the notes coming... we love to hear from you!

Happy New Year

2014!
