Emily, Emily! It was not bad at all! It was challenging, yes. But that's what we live for. We had to make changes; we had to be flexible. But we adjusted, we learned, we had a great time. No regrets. I hope my posts didn't make it seem otherwise. We are so fortunate to be able to travel like this, and we revel in figuring it out! We'll look forward to you "catching up" and letting us know what is up with you. Any plans to visit Kino? Cheers and best to you — fellow adventurer!

Let’s see. We left you in the last dispatch as we were settling into Albuquerque for what we expected was to be a two-week+ stay. And then it got interesting. We’ve always prided ourselves in being flexible travelers. We rarely... Continue reading
