Ancient civilizations and dinosaurs. What’s not to love?
We attempt to see London in a day … and fall short. But the fun is in the trying.
“We want to live in a world where plants and fungi are understood, valued, and conserved.”

This year has easily been our most prolific travel year since Angela and I married adventure and each other nearly a decade ago. In 2017 we saw four continents, nine U.S. states, twelve countries and territories, and I got to dip my toes in seven major bodies of water, including the Nile.
We also started writing about all of it.
Here’s a chronological review of our travels in 2017, along with our favorite photos. Thanks for sharing adventure with us!
We had such a wonderful day seeing the sights on the Isle of Man as we drove from one end of country to the other that we almost didn’t want to leave the next morning. And thanks to Manx Ferries, we almost didn’t get to.
Mike purchased our ferry tickets from Douglas, Isle of Man, to Heysham, England, before we left the U.S., and the plan was to take the train through England to Glasgow, Scotland, which was the next stop on our U.K. adventure. We were foot passengers, meaning we didn’t have a vehicle to transport on the ferry, and we only had carry-on luggage, so we thought arriving 45 minutes prior to departure would give us plenty of time. We were wrong.
