A Year of Summer

About this blog

Our last large trip, we were leaving big city life in bustling Calgary, Alberta, Canada in search for something simpler. Having worked 60+ hour work weeks we were exhaused and ready to drop out of the 'rat race'. Going from the New World, we traveled back to the Old World and explored Europe and some of the Middle East by bicycle. After that life changing experience, we've been a little unsettled ever since. Taking the opportunity to live and work in bonny Scotland, we've enjoyed 2 years in the wonderful village of Ratho outside of Edinburgh. Now that chapter is our lives is coming to a close, and while Scotland is many things (beautiful, friendly...) one thing it is NOT, is particularily warm. With our bodies craving heat and our skin crying out for a good tan we're setting off for some warmer places and are endeavoring to chase 'summer' around the globe. First we'll travel throughout SE Asia, onward to Australia and New Zealand and then back to the Northern Hemisphere in time for summer to begin again...
