We are Jason and Allison and we are embarking on a journey across the globe. In our former lives, we had steady jobs, two cars and a house. We lived in St. Paul, Minnesota where Jason worked as an engineer for a medical device company and Allison worked for a local public health department. We’ve always loved to travel and a few years ago realized that two to three weeks of vacation each year wasn’t going to cut it, not if we wanted to visit all of the places on our must see list of destinations. Soon after, we began to discuss the possibility of traveling around the world for an extended period of time. Now, after months of planning and anticipation, we are taking a hiatus from our “normal” lives to do just that.
