We're heading back to the US. Well, just for a little while. We're going to be house sitting a couple of cats just outside of Portland, Oregon. We love this area and are looking forward to exploring the area some more. It's going to be rainy and chilly, but hopefully we can get outside and do some walking. If not, we know there are tons of good cafes around.
What's that you say? You don't know where Gjovik, Norway is? Well, we don't really either except that it is north of Oslo. We are incredibly ecstatic to have the opportunity to house sit for two cats during the summer season in this beautiful place. It's a long time before we will be here, but we just keep talking about it. Norway.
We're so excited! We're doing a house sit in Los Angeles over the Thanksgiving holiday. Not only do we both love LA (maybe I should listen to Hewey Lewis) but the sit is for an amazing kitty named Baba and we will get to see some friends while in town. How fantastic is this? Pretty fucking fantastic.
We didn't have it in mind to go to Merida, but a good friend of ours is getting married and we thought, well, we must go! And so we are off to Merida. Now that we've been doing some research it looks like we are likely going to enjoy ourselves immensely. Oh and we are going to eat well too...
We left ourselves a very small patch of time to be able to visit Barcelona after our time in Morocco. We've both wanted to visit Barcelona for a very long time and it was a great place to jump in between Morocco and Mexico. There's much going on there these days so it such be extra exciting.
Morocco is huge. It's also a place we have both wanted to go for as long as we can remember. I just keep saying "I can't believe we haven't been to Morocco yet" over and over. Well, no we are. We are going to spend a little more than a month exploring the famed cities of this land along with a Berber village homestay and some time in the desert. Never mind that Zac and I both have issues with sand.
I'm just gonna do it again...We're going to Portugal!!! Whew, glad I finally got that out there. Of course we are super excited. We're going to take 12 days and do a quick little tour of as much of the country as we can. We hypothesize that this will only wet our appetites for more. I can't wait to see.
Milano. We passed through here on the train many, many years ago and we are finally going to have a few days to explore all the city has to offer. This is a prefect place to head after our time in Vermiglio and will serve as our location for our flight to our next adventure. But don't think we aren't excited about heading to Milan. We are.
We're headed to Armenia! Partly because it's Georgia's neighbor. Mostly because we've been intrigued by this small country for a while. And then there's the ever present Ararat that draws people in. We're really looking forward to our time here and plan do to some good walking. We're getting up close and personal with the mountains and villages throughout this land. We can't wait.
We're going to Georgia! The country not the state. We have both become more and more obsessed with exploring Georgia and we are getting our chance. We've booked our flight in to Tbilisi and then we're going to see how long we want to stay and just where we want to go. We can't wait.
Winter in Brittany. We've been told to expect blustery and rainy. We can't wait. We'll have been in Scotland prior to this so think we will be well settled into blustery and rainy by this point. Our time here will be spent in a small village with a house that has a loom and a studio for Jill to use. Who knows what Zac will be doing. Jill will be busy.
Well, we are heading back to the states, only for a bit. A dear friend is getting married and we felt this was an event not to be missed. We then were fortunate enough to be picked up for a house sit in southern Minnesota for the exact amount of time we had available before moving on to our next adventure.
