We have been blogging about our travels for several years now. During that time we have never had anything seriously go wrong. We have had some little adventures that have caused short periods of stress, but they have always worked themselves out.

Someone reaches out and helps when you least expect it, a place you did not even know or had the vaguest idea about turns out to be really wonderful. We have had many experiences like this and this is what makes traveling so appealing to us. If we did not venture out these experiences would never have happened and these places would not have been found.
