Shawn and Erin Around the World

Shawn travel blog
We finally finished our travels and the website! We arrived home in October, after 13-months on the road; visiting 37 countries on 29 flights; traveling on 34 trains, 69 buses, 17 boats, fellucas and longtails; hiring 22 taxies, 8 auto rickshaws, 6 cycle rickshaws, 2 motor bikes and 10 rides on various animals ranging from horses and donkeys to camels, not to mention the odd bicycle, kayak and finally up and down a few mountains and through a couple jungles on our tired feet. During the year we slept in hotels, hostels, ryokans, pousadas, on planes, in buses, boats, on the deck of a boat, in a few tents and even under the stars on a couple of nights. We've been bitten, jostled, bumped, pushed, occasionally ripped off but never robbed and always welcomed by all countries, all people, especially the multitudes of smiling children.

After we got back we soon realized the biggest culture shock of the year was coming back to the Western World. We've spent the past four months basically deciding where we wanted to live and work. After much thought, debate and several interviews we decided on the Central Coast of California. We are settling back into the routine of everyday life and are very happy with the our new home and jobs. Thanks for all of your continued support, enjoy the final entries!
