The only stops in our journey that are pre-booked are Iceland, London, and Australia. The whole idea is to let the adventure unfold as we go along. We pre-booked Australia because we will be there for Christmas and New Year’s, the peak holiday season. The following itinerary is a guideline only–we fully expect to modify it along the way based on political climates, cheap airfares, and where the weather suits our clothes.

    1. Hey guys! I miss being in class with everyone, but I have really enjoyed the trip so far. Right now we are in Italy, and we are about to shave my dad’s head! I just published my second post today about London. I love Italy so much that I am learning Italian from my iPad and I want to move here for a year of college then become a teacher here for my whole life. I miss you all, ciao!
