INSPIRATION

INSPIRATION OF THE WEEK – THANKFUL FOR…

Over the past 7 months we have lived in 50+ cities and experienced more than in Dubai, London and Australia over the course of 5 years.

With each experience something new is gained and something new to be very thankful for.

Jenna: Throughout this trip I’ve learnt to truly value & appreciate the basics. Things I always believed were necessities i’m learning are a blessing – like warm water to wash your face, electricity at the flip of a switch and no real concern for how or why it works, a toilet you can flush without the fear of some bug flying up your nether regions, warmth when you are cold & AC when you are hot and of course gratitude for another day of happiness, loving and living – to name a few…

 The following is a list we have generated of the things we are thankful for… and although it can not possibly contain every single blessing, it’s a good start… 

I hope reading this will  touch your soul, create good vibes all around and help you realize just how blessed you truly are, if only for a moment.

  2. Hiya! Did you guys make it to Costa Rica for the holidays or are you still in the Belize area? We’re in S. Texas, crossing the border tomorrow. Hopefully we’ll make it to Tampico for the night. We’ll be around Belize just after the 1st of the year. Let us know where you’ll be :).

Heading to Veracruz in the morning…. we’re following the coast to Cancun, then dropping down into Belize… after that we’ll do Tikal in Guatemala before heading to El Salvador. We will keep in touch and find you along the way! Hope the New Year finds you well :).
