That mentioned, it has been a WILD experience and never with out its ups and downs… like that point we slept on the bus station in Rio de Janeiro through the Carnival insanity, or when our motorhome broke down on the Canada and it took 4 days on the ferry to achieve a mechanic, or when a mouse gnawed at our baggage in Thailand. Some days we do not understand how we go on with no base to retreat to, however one factor we do know is that we could not have achieved it with out the assist of our HoneyTrek household – at residence, on the highway and on-line. Thanks a lot for encouraging us over the previous 10 years and serving to us pursue our desires!
