Welcome to CircleOurEarth!

This blog began as a place for me to chronicle my experiences traveling around the world. It has since, however, morphed into something else, which is exciting. Readers visit not only to learn about my travel adventures, but also to get ideas of creative recipes to try, interesting destinations to visit, and inspiration to do what they want to do with their lives.

With that said, this project is still very much in its baby stages.  There is a lot of content I still need to post, it needs to be reorganized, and I’ve been neglecting this site for almost a year…so please bear with me.

In the meantime, do you have anything specific you’d like to see on this site in the near future? Would you like to share an article or story from your own travel experiences? Feel free to reach out to me! Your feedback and contributions are warmly welcomed.

The ultimate goal of this site is simply to inspire more people to get out and explore the world.

    Through lots of crazy adventures and things seen and done, it was great that we got the chance to show you most of Western Australia and I hope it was enough of a taste to get you back over this way someday. to see the rest of Australia.

    Looking forward reading your blog updates about the other parts of the world you visit and the people that you meet.

    See you someday soon, maybe in Austin, maybe anywhere in the world :)

    Hey Cristen. It’s noon the day Miguel got on the plane. Gusto is fed and watered- he’s growing taller everyday. Everything is good here but send Miguel back as soon as possible because it’s not as fun without him. I am really excited for both of you getting this opportunity to travel. The world needs ya’ll out there doing what ya’ll do- but I guess I can hack it for a month or so. I want to eat some fried ocra or squash. I think that’ll be my mission for the day.
