Annie and Jon left corporate America to do some world traveling. This blog chronicles their unconventional path and hopefully provides a little inspiration along the way.

coming to america

As Neil Diamond famously sang, "On the boats and on the planes (or trains). They're coming to America. Never looking back again. They're coming to America."

After nearly eight months and eleven countries, it's time to go home. We are up against the holidays and out of money and while both Annie and I have mixed feelings about returning, we have agreed on one thing. It will be really nice to see friends and family again. 

We currently have tickets on Malaysia Airlines to return on November 1st to LAX. While this date isn't set in stone, it is beginning to look more like a reality.

We have many things planned upcoming for the blog including finishing our Travel Tip Series as well as several video recaps. I am even considering making a movie from all the video footage I have shot during the trip. 

We are sad to see this journey coming to an end but looking forward to catching up with everyone.

It seems I stumbled on your just at the tail-end of your adventure - but I'm glad to have found it. Your pictures, video, and genuine posts have really kept me coming back. They are great. So I must admit I'm, very selfishly, sad to see your journey wind down.

But I look forward to the updates & posts that are yet to come! Safe travels and return home :)

As you're on your way to return to your friends and family at home... don't forget about the friends you've made here. :D

Hope to see you back here in Thailand sometimes.

Thanks Kay. We are a little bummed to be heading home but have some great stuff on the way. I look forward to having a little more time to check out your site when we return.

Pai, we will of course remember you. You are one of our favorite new friends. We hope you come visit in America when you are no longer a poor Thai boy.
