Let’s Travel!

So, Donna and I finally got around to buying our plane tickets to Europe this week. While the past two-plus months have been good for decompressing from our day jobs, it starting to feel like it’s time to get this show on the road!

As part of this effort, we put together this new blog. It’s kinda empty right now, but we intend to use it as the primary record for our upcoming travels. Speaking of which…

We’re flying out of Seattle on March 22nd to spend a week in Texas visiting my family. On the 29th, we’re off to Europe with a return flight booked four months later. (Turns out this has potential visa implications. I’ll talk about this in another post.)

We’ll be arriving in Madrid and eventually flying home from Amsterdam. In-between, we’re thinking of going as far east as Istanbul, as far north as Scandinavia and as far east as Ireland / Portugal. Overall, we’ll be kinda making it up as we go.

In the menu bar near the top of this blog, there’s a “Suggest Locations!” link. This will take you to a page where you can check out a map of suggested places we should visit. It would be awesome if you clicked through to the Google map and pinpoint places we should see on our travels. Just edit the map to add a pushpin, add your name and why we should go there and we’ll do the rest 😉

Also, if you happen to find yourself in Europe between the start April and the end of July, let us know and perhaps we can meet up!
