One family, one year, one world

We are two parents (48 and 49) and two daughters (8 and 15) who changed our lives. We sold, gave away, tossed or stored our worldly goods, quit our jobs and schools, and left our home in Alaska for a one-year around-the-world sabbatical. We visited 18 countries, had countless adventures, and took thousands of photos. This site chronicles our journey of discovery and change as told by all of us.
