We have been a bit quiet lately, especially with our future plans. And honestly, it’s because we simply didn’t know what exactly was next for us. Some different opportunities presented themselves, but we couldn’t make up our minds as we were juggling a few different ideas.
However, everything came together a few weeks ago and we’re ready to share! We are hitting the road again in a couple weeks with a quick stop in England, since we didn’t get enough time there on our return trip to the U.S. in June. After seeing the sights in London for a few days, we will be heading back to…
If you are reading this and thought, “wait, weren’t you guys just in Turkey?”, you are correct. We are heading back to our favorite little village – Uzumlu! We really enjoyed our month long housesit and when another opportunity came up on Trusted Housesitters, we jumped at it!
We’ll be caring for a dog, a tortoise and several kitties! We are looking forward to seeing some friends and enjoying the hot, hot, hot Turkish weather. Hopefully we’ll get a chance to reconnect with these guys, and finally get to know their mom and dad!
We found a great deal on flights from Turkey and will kick off part two of our Euro-trip in Vienna! We will be working with a few partners in the area during our time there, so we are pretty pumped to experience this historic city.
On top of exploring the city and culture, it’s harvest time in the Vienna vineyards! We plan on staying at and checking out multiple Vienna heurigers (Austrian wine taverns) to enjoy fresh wine, music and local food.
From Vienna, we’ll be catching a train to Ljubljiana (don’t worry, we had to look up how to pronounce it too), picking up a car and taking a road trip through Slovenia. We have no official plans here, so we’ll be winging it. 🙂
Croatia has been on our short list of countries for visiting and we think we found the perfect time for a visit. Hey Matt, how does celebrating your birthday aboard a Croatian Cruise sound? 😉
Why Barcelona? Tapas and wine, of course. 🙂
Another reason for Barcelona? We found a cheap flight out to our final destination for 2015.
We’ll be spending six weeks exploring Antigua and all that the Lake Atitlan area has to offer.
We are super excited to base ourselves in one spot, especially after jumping around Europe for a couple months. Lake Atitlan is the deepest lake in Central America and is flanked by three volcanos. We’ll be staying just outside one of the surrounding villages.
Can you believe this view? We were able to find this gem on Airbnb and knew it was for us! Morning coffee might be lasting a bit longer than usual I think. 🙂
Our time in Guatemala will conclude our 2015 travels. We’ll be heading back to our home state of Wisconsin in December, just in time for a white Christmas. Ho, Ho, Ho.
Have you been to any of these locations? We’d love to hear your suggestions. Post them in the comments below or send us a message!
