The Oxford Dictionary defines a full stop as a period marking the end of a sentence, presumably so one can begin a new thought. In our case, we recently stopped our normal every day lives, which were extraordinary in so many ways, in order to breathe, take a look around, sleep in and start a new adventure. We were recently married, lived in a great apartment in New York and had always been gainfully employed as a TV producer (Denise) and restaurant man (Anthony). In 2015, we quit those jobs we loved, bought two round-the-world plane tickets (who even knew that was a thing?) and went off to shlep around the globe in search of good food, amazing wine and lots of time together. We documented the whole thing here with pics, videos and a few stories, in hopes that friends and family would enjoy our trek, tell us the places they love that we should definitely visit and maybe even come meet us along the way. We were away from New York for 13 months, and when we returned to the city in 2016, we realized we didn’t want to be done just yet, so we set back out on the road. Along the way we somehow landed dream jobs back in New York City, and 18 months after we’d left for our trip around the world, we returned to normal life. Today, we travel when we can and dream about the time we can be nomads once again. This blog is the story of our adventure – 18 months in all – traveling the world. We hope you enjoy it. And better yet, get so inspired that you take a full stop of your own.
