London

Mind the Gap


View Map of our Journey on SMWiley's travel map.

A week in London gave us plenty of time to see the major sights, spend time with family, and a leisurely stop for afternoon tea. Some of our favorite sights were Tower Bridge, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Piccadilly Circus, most of the major parks ( Hyde, Green, Regent's, Greenwich), Buckingham Palace (changing of the guard), and Shakespeare's Globe. Using the tube to get from place to place was very easy and helped us stay within our travel budget. The city is extremely fast pace so be sure to always leave room for those who run past in order to save themselves a minute or two so as not to have to wait for the next train!

Mystical. If you ever have the opportunity to visit Stonehenge, we would highly recommend it. Although there are a ton of tourists at the site, the self guided audio tour gives history as well as the myths associated with these huge rocks and what they stand for and the walk around the grounds makes you feel as though you are the only one there. The countryside is beautiful and the trip on a coach is relaxing. We went alongside Stetson's sister Erika and her husband Florian. Excellent company for an excellent adventure!

How did we get here?

It all started on February 12, 2012. Stetson and I(Megan), independently, decided to ski at Loveland Ski area in Colorado, USA. We were both skiing with our respective friends and met at lift eight. Ironically, our paths had crossed several times prior but the timing had always been off. We ended up in the lodge chatting about our past and future travel plans. All of this led to an amazing friendship which blossomed into a lifetime of commitment. Here we are, travelling the world to not only celebrate our engagement, but to also change our perspective on life by experiencing other cultures, engaging those we connect with on our path, and challenging ourselves to live out of a backpack for one full year. This is our story! Cheers!
