Kevin and I feel so humbled by the opportunities we've had to adventure around the globe. We travel not simply to add stamps to our passports, but to explore the world and make friendships that open our eyes and hearts towards what really matters in life. We've lived abroad in Italy {where I studied Italian}, Indonesia {where Kevin coached basketball}, and most recently Nepal {where we worked with girls rescued out of sex-trafficking}. We also just stepped into our 40th country this year.  

Below are links to my travel series on "How to Pay for Travel" and other travel related links, including all the countries i've blogged about. Enjoy and happy traveling!
