Kyle + Jackie Road Trip The World | First Blog Post
I cannot believe I am here, typing this out. I have been dying to start a blog to collect mine and Kyle's travels for some time now and it feels so surreal and yet so wonderful to be sitting here spilling my words and thoughts to you. I want to keep this short and sweet because I do not want to bore you with a lengthy first post, but I just wanted to say hi and get a feel for this whole blogging thing.. so bare with me!
In just one week, Kyle and I will be catching a flight out of DC and heading South towards Costa Rica!! For those of you who know us, and for those who do not, our love for traveling goes much further than we could ever explain. Kyle has been to all 50 states and the one thing that really impressed me most when meeting him for the first time (sorry, I have to brag a little..) was that he spent three years living in Alaska right after graduating college. Since meeting, I have now been to 21 (I think)! Kyle has also been to Canada, Fiji, Argentina, New Zealand and Antarctica (TWICE) and for now, my only trip out of the country has been to Honduras.
We decided this year that we are going to travel to three states and one country/continent each year, for the next seven years. Our plan is to visit all fifty states together (Yes, we are starting over) in that time. This year we managed to squeeze Mississippi, Iowa and Connecticut into what seems like, our forever jam-packed schedules. (I don't think we have had a weekend off since the summer).
In our upcoming posts, we plan to do a little Q&A introduction explaining more about us and our lives at home, how we are able to travel so much and some secrets on how we navigate and customize each trip to be sure we are getting the most out of our travels! Oh, and of course lots of pictures of our lazy bluetick coonhound too. If you are interested in how we plan to "do this thing", follow and subscribe to our blog so we can keep you updated on our latest ventures.
If you have made it this far, I applaud you. I promise we will be sharing an endless amount of pictures and experiences in our next blog post - but for now, you are just stuck with these words.
Until next time. Cheers!
-Jackie & Kyle
