She said, he said: 2018 in review.

In 2018 we visited 19 countries — 16 of them for the first time.  One or both of us visited US cities from San Francisco to Washington, DC, Carmel, Indiana to Miami, Florida.  

All in all, Amy spent just shy of 5 months traveling and Keith wasn’t far behind.  From stepping briefly into North Korea at the DMZ to nearly a month in different trips to Cuba we were fortunate to see more of the world in 2018 than any other year of our lives, and were even inducted into the Circumnavigators Club.  We decided to look back on our 2018 travels as we look forward to 2019.  As usual, we didn’t always agree.  Check out our 2018 Year in Review He Said, She Said below.

See a Country in a Day: Our Daytrip to Andorra

The tiny country of Andorra sits about a three hour drive from Barcelona, landlocked between France in the north and Spain in the south.  The “microstate” is one of the smallest countries in the world by both population (fewer than 80,000 people) and landmass (180 square miles).  It is mainly known for its low tax shopping, skiing, and hiking that attract 10 million visitors each year.  (Yes, you read that right – 10 million visitors each year in a tiny country with only 80,000 citizens.)  


Frankly, not the kind of place where we’d normally want to hang out long-term, but as a day trip, why not? We had already booked several commitments in Barcelona (Sagrada Familia, the Picasso Museum, etc.) that required us to be in Barcelona all but one day of our time there, which happened to be the last full day of our trip.

She said, he said...month two.

This is the anniversary of our second month of full time travel.  We have some work that requires us to be in the United States for our coaching and consulting business, Apochromatik, for the next couple of weeks.  But don’t worry — RedDotBlueDot continues as we have several more international and domestic (USA) destinations on the docket before the end of the year.  (And many, many posts to write for the Blue Blog and photos to share on the Red Blog!) 

With that said, how was month two?  Aren’t you just dying to know?

She said, he said...month one.

With about 22,000 miles traveled so far, we each reflected on the last month of non-stop travel (July 1-August 1).  We didn't discuss our answers before combining them and hitting publish.  As you can see, it's been a great month, but we definitely have our own perspectives on it.  August has already included some amazing experiences -- stay tuned, and let us know in the comments if you have other questions we didn't answer.
