Around-the-WorldJourney of Discovery

An Incredible Journey of Discovery

    Our family’s six month journey around-the-world was much more than taking 20,000 photos, visiting 14 countries, climbing 15 towers, walking some 825 miles, flying at least 52,000 miles, eating 11 flavors of gelato, schlepping 200 pounds of luggage, logging onto 10,200 minutes of Internet access, driving on the left-hand side of the road in four European countries, and visiting one emergency room.

    It was an incredible jourMilford Sound, New Zealand – The 22-kilometre fiord is just  off the Tasman Sea and is lined with majestic cliffs, peaks and  beautiful rainbows. The highest peak is over 5000 feet. Thanks  to the heavy annual rainfall the waterfalls are spectacular.ney of self discovery, a discovery of world cultures, and of making new friends along the way. We viewed history galore, we reconnected as a family, and the whole experience greatly exceeded our expectations. The time we shared for six months allowed the three of us – husband Robin, 60; daughter Tricia, 12; and me, Marla, 44 – to learn about our respective limits of tolerance and patience in regard to not only hunger, sleep, boredom and obtaining directions in foreign languages but also our respective passions for art, history, people watching, sleep, and ice cream.

Camping the Great Outdoors
...ideas to consider

   "Since that first camping trip, all of our trips have been only partially planned, with itineraries set more as ideas than as fixed schedules.  We usually take each day one at a time, and do whatever feels right for that particular day.  Slowing down to smell the roses has never been so sweet as when we travel with our two kids!"  -- David, Westminster, MD

 Take it from David, there's a time to plan and a time to take one day at a time.
