My wife, Lisa, and I have been bitten by the travel bug. We're officially sick, and our sickness has created in us the habit of journaling during our trips so we can remember the details years later when we've gotten old and our synapses don't work as well. Take the trips with us if you'd like to, well not literally, but here on the Internet. Enjoy.
