Travel Journal / Blog

As we get things up and running again, I figured I would start putting some of my social media posts directly on the site - and it turns out that Nora already began a fantastic tour journal a few years ago, we had just never published it. So feel free to look those over, explore some of our travels that maybe we were too sleepy to share at the time :-) Enjoy!
