About this blog

The timing of our gapyear rested on 3 factors: Darren completing his MBA, our desire to travel prior to starting a family, and Darren's dad's retirement.

We made this decision knowing we were both walking away from great career positions, but we also recognize this trip is once in a lifetime. We will miss our family, friends, co-workers, and clients.

The trip will include family time in the Midwest before heading to SE Asia and New Zealand, then Mexico and Guatemala, and back to the States.

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain
