My name is Gabriel and I love to travel! My wife and I recently took a year off to travel the world. Check out this blog to read all about it, and our other travels as well! (Also, check out my wife’s Instagram account!)
Before we begin, a couple maps:
This map includes all the travels I’ve done, plus places I want to travel to. The map is color coded, the different colors being:
- Blue = places I’ve been
- Orange = places I’ve been and want to go back
- Green = places I’ve lived
- Red = places I want to visit
The one year of travel (1YoT) portion of the first map, uncolor-coded.
As you can see, we did a lot in our year of travel; we drove across the US and New Zealand, and also visited northern France, northern Italy, Switzerland, Ireland/Northern Ireland, the Netherlands, Hong Kong, eastern Australia, Indonesia, Kuala Lumpur, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, India, Nepal, Dubai, Ukraine, Krakow, Bratislava, Vienna, Budapest, northern Croatia, Slovenia, and Czechia.
Additionally, here are some of our pre-1YoT trips: Argentina/Uruguay, Costa Rica, England/Scotland/Ireland, Krakow/Auschwitz, Spain/France/Italy/Switzerland, Israel, the Utah/Arizona border, Hoover Dam/the Grand Canyon, Kings Canyon/Sequoia, Kauai, the Colorado Rockies (sort of), Seattle and surroundings, Whistler, Big Sur, Las Vegas, San Diego, San Francisco, the Mojave, Sonoran, and Colorado deserts, driving through California, and also living in Los Angeles, San Luis Obispo, and Seattle.
