It is true that Livology is not a traditional travel blog, but it is because of travel that we understand so clearly that all journeys begin from within. We can grow without travel and we can travel and not grow but we can never want less than we are capable of imagining.
The following location highlights illustrate that path we have forged since we left on this journey in September of 2013. Without even taking the airline, train, or boat miles into consideration, we have driven approximately 30,000 miles through Europe and 10,000 miles in the USA.
