Welcome to Letters from Elsewhere. Just a few days ago Will and I quit our jobs to travel round the world for eleven months – a plan that has been years in the making and whose reality is just sinking in! We are still here in Baton Rouge for the next several weeks, finalizing details and preparing for the adventure. We then embark on a six week “goodbye tour” which includes an excursion to Yellowstone National Park and a road trip through the northeast. On August 4th, we fly to Lima and our international trip to explore the world and visit schools around the globe begins. Check out our (tentative) round the world itinerary below.
