Cruising home 12/18

Well, we made it safely back to the USA! After 327 days, 32 countries, 5 continents, 25 flight segments to 21 destinations, 20 bus rides, 22 trains, 4 boats, 4 rental cars, 1 campervan, and a lifetime of memories, we are home. Once we boarded the cruise ship near Rome, we stopped in Italy twice, France, Barcelona, and the Canary Islands before making our way across the Atlantic. Our friends Andy and Becky joined us for the cruise. What a spectacular way to wind down our year long adventure. It was truly amazing. We had five star accommodations, food, and entertainment onboard the Celebrity Silhouette for nearly two weeks. Upon arrival into Fort Lauderdale we were greeted by friends and family and treated to a couple days in South Florida before catching a flight to Virginia. We will spend a couple days here visiting with family before driving home in time for the Packer game Sunday and Christmas the following days. Here are a couple pictures of the past couple weeks aboard the cruise ship. Enjoy!

We hope everyone has enjoyed the pictures and stories of our adventures. We can’t believe it’s over already, but we will remember this trip forever. Thanks for being a part of it.

Thanks again!
Brad and Jenny
