So our last post from June 23, 2015 was all about fun things to do in Penang, Malaysia. Then… nothing. Sorry about that. Kat has been good about keeping things relatively current over on Facebook, but the blog has been badly neglected! So what’s the deal? Time for a quick update.
Well, for one, we’re not traveling at the moment. We returned to the U.S. in July after about 9 months of awesome, spectacular, life-altering travel adventures around Southeast Asia. Since we’ve returned we’ve been busy feathering a new nest and reconnecting with friends and family. More on that in a bit.
Also, though our last post was about Malaysia, we weren’t actually in Malaysia at the time. The blog was always behind our actual geographic location, but it grew waaayyy behind as time went on. We were just having too much fun and experiencing too many amazing places. Here’s the full itinerary:
- San Francisco
- Malaysia again (just for a day!)
So if you’ve been reading along on the blog you know we wrote a bunch about the Philippines, some about Thailand, and a little about Malaysia. We have TONS more stories, not to mention thousands of photos and videos.
Here are just a few quick highlights:
We also have a lot to share about why we came home, what we’ve been up to since we got back, how the trip has impacted our lives at home (hint: life is way more awesome now), and what it’s like returning to the United States after months living in Asia.
So that’s the nutshell version. Basically we loved the full time traveling and it was absolutely the right thing for us to do at the time. But it wasn’t what we wanted to do forever. Now we’re back with friends and family, back into some routines (trying to focus on the good ones and avoid the ones that burned us out before), and overall really enjoying life with a whole new energy.
And of course, we’re planning the next trip…
