It’s certainly a strange feeling to have all you own locked and stored away. It makes you wonder how you’ve accumulated all these things over the years, and you begin to re-evaluate the things in your life you convince yourself you need.
After a week of goodbyes, visiting our favorite watering holes and filling up on the very best of Chicago pub grub, we closed the door on our first home together and set off for our hometown of St. Louis, Missouri. We’ll spend the next few weeks catching up with family and friends and tying up the many loose ends on our trip planning before we embark on our overseas adventure.
With no home to call our own and just weeks away from departing, the reality of this journey is really beginning to set in.
