Landmarks and Milestones
Sorry we've not been around much, but we've been busy in Scotland. We haven't had very much luck with getting online (the occasional internet cafe has been about it), but now we've found a campsite with free WiFi, so we'll be doing some more posting in the next few days.
In our absence, we've clocked up a few "milestones." Back in May we reached our 500th night under Aluminium. August 1st was the eighteenth monthiversary (is that a proper word?) of the start of our Big Adventure. That's also about how long it took us to travel the 20,000th mile. Finally, today, this very blog received its 10,000th visit.
I'm not sure how I should feel about all of that. Proud? Exhausted? Thirsty?
It has been the greatest adventure of my life. If anyone out there is thinking about doing what we've done, stop thinking and do it. We haven't, for one second, had a single regret about the trip. Some people have suggested that we've wasted our time by not traveling abroad. I can only reply that 18 months in the UK just isn't enough. We've barely scratched the surface of this remarkable part of the world.
But what next? Fear not - we will be carrying on. There's a lot of world out there, and we want to see it.
So thank you, dear readers, who have followed us along our journey. We promise to keep you updated of where we've been and where we're going. In the meantime...
