Once in a while I'll look back at all the places that Hubs and I have been so
fortunate to experience and learn from. And it got me thinking, what if I
started a series of nostalgic posts every Thursday? And that is how "Throwback Thursdays" came about.
To start off the
inaugural post, I thought, it would be appropriate to talk about the
first destination that actually got us thinking of the possibility of living abroad. A
little back story: both of us grew up watching some of our
friends and family travel the world and being envious of that, we knew it was a
life goal to be able to do those things. We didn't want to wait until
retirement age either, because that's not a guarantee. After six years
together, we had and continue to make our dreams and goals come true. We've made
sacrifices to obtain those precious stamps in our passports. Hubs and I
are true believers in the saying "If you want something badly enough,
you do what it takes to make it happen!"
In December 2009, we embarked on our honeymoon to New Zealand and Australia for 23 days. It was magical and even at the end of it all, we didn't want to come back. To this day, we still dream of that trip and what we got out of it. It was then that our minds began to develop a new goal: moving abroad.
Normally I don't post unflattering pictures of us ( who does?), but this particular accomplishment was too good to not include.
