IMAGINING:

Although we avoid having a strict itinerary, we’re finding that the easiest way to travel is to plan-out our destinations in two-week segments. We already got stuck in one place we didn’t want to be due to lack of planning.  So, we’ve developed an overall plan for the summer, but we’ll plan it out in more detail in two-week segments.  Continue reading
