In the Beginning...

[best read while listening to Recovering the Satellites by Counting Crows]

You might say it was one click of a button that led us to where we are now - which, of course, is five days and eighteen hours from boarding a plane to China. Little did we know that buying plane tickets to Guatemala in 2006 would change the course of our 2007. By clicking the "purchase now" button last April, we found ourselves bumming around Central America. But after 12 days we were left wondering how we could go back home with so much more travel left in us.

For years, the idea of wandering the world had been on our minds. (As freshman in college we almost dropped out to spend a semester traveling together.) But you know how the story goes - jobs, friends, money (lack there of) and life in general got in the way. It wasn't until we were laying under a mosquito net in Guatemala that we realized something: There will never be a perfect time. There will never be enough money. And careers can wait. So to hell with it. Let's just do it now.

So we hit the "purchase now" button again...this time for one-way tickets to China.

I think we're ready.
