It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything – the last couple months since we returned have been a whirlwind of adjusting to life back in the States and planning our next steps. Time definitely moves faster here!
We’re certainly not settling back into the same life we had before – working from a blank slate after selling all our stuff, we plan continue our experiments in lifestyle design.
We’ll do our best to incorporate the things we enjoyed most about our travels into our everyday life, and use what we learned from our mistakes to plan future trips.
Here’s a look at some of the things we’ve been up to:
Our New Home
After almost a year of bouncing between hotel and hostel rooms all over the world followed by couch surfing with relatives, one of our biggest priorities has been finding a new place to live:
Since we grew rather fond of the city life during our trip, we’ve chosen a small (but very cool) apartment right in the heart of downtown Dallas – it’s a radical departure from our previous suburban lifestyle & we love it!
Back to School?
Hannah & Olivia got along so well without it last year that we really don’t see any reason to send them back now. Our continued adventures in homeschooling will be the subject of a new blog coming soon.
We’ll keep adding content here, too. For those of you planning your own adventures, we’ll talk more about the travel lessons we’ve learned and add lots of tips and location-specific information that might be of help.
We’ve really enjoyed meeting other travelers and lifestyle designers online, and we hope to make many more new friends in the months to come. You can always email marc [at] 4suitcases [dot] com if you have any questions or need any advice – we’ll be glad to help however we can!
Of course, our passports and 4 suitcases will always be handy, too – because you never know when it’ll be time for another road trip!
