Dear Travel Sabbatical fans - since our return from our almost-one-year sabbatical in 2012, we’ve returned to the usual routine of life, getting back to our careers, working lots, and saving for our nest egg with the hopes that we can expatriate as early retirees to a sunny town some day. Meanwhile, we have been taking international trips each year and all those travel blogs can be found at our Facebook Travel Sabbatical blog. We have lots of great pictures and blogging on Portugal, Myanmar, Jordan, China, Mexico City, (back to) Ecuador, Lebanon, and Egypt. We recently celebrated our 40th country (Egypt) of independent travel and counting!
We are plotting another break again with a whole new list of countries to visit. Stay tuned and this blog will be resurrected again with Travel Sabbatical 2.0!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to all of our Travel Sabbatical fans for following our trip around the world. It wouldn't have been the same without all of your encouragement. A blessed and happy new year in 2013. Stay tuned for more travel adventures in the future. Until then, be safe and keep on travelin'!
Until we returned to the States, we had no idea how many people were actually following us on our adventures around the world! We are utterly amazed and grateful from the bottom of our hearts that so many people took the time to read our blog. We are truly honored.
Having had a few weeks to meet back up with our family and friends, the number one question has been, "Where was your favorite place?" The difficulty in answering this question may come as a surprise...we had so many favorites! We definitely enjoyed experiencing all the famous sites, but in general, the most memorable times have been anytime we were able to get to know the locals. As we wrap-up 2012, this list of Travel Sabbatical favorites may help answer the question, "What was your favorite ___(fill in the blank)___?
