Same Same But Different

Things I will never take for granted again: flush toilets toilet paper fans real coffee (not the instant crap!)

About a year ago, Curtis came up with the idea that we quit our jobs and leave the pressures of the city behind us to embark on an adventure around the world. It sounded like a great fantasy….but not a very realistic goal. It was soon dismissed, only to be reawakened several months later. This […]
