Roni: Jen and I are toasting on a Southwest flight to Nashville. It’s been a year since we launched TheUnworldlyTravelers and just 3 days since returning from Chicago for BlogHer. I’ve written 48 posts and traveled to 13 spots including my first overseas trip to Italy.
I started this blog to inspire myself and others to travel more.
I think it’s working.
Jen: What are you talking about? I can’t believe I’m even blogging! I’ve figured out WordPress, Photoshop, Instagram, Tumblr and Twitter.
Roni: lol I knew I’d turn you into a geek sooner or later.
Jen: In traveling I’ve hiked mountains, flown nearly every airline, and drank more coffee than I’d like to admit.
Roni: Travel has always been in our blood, we just now have an outlet to share our passion.
Looking back through the past year, these are our favorite posts and a quick note why…
This was the first time I embarked on a trip by myself with a purpose to capture it for the blog. Plus it was the first time I was in Central Park!
My omg-I’ve-never-been-in-a-hotel-like-this moment.
Pretty self-explanatory. Vacation regret.
I put myself out there and wrote about something that many people didn’t know I did.
I love finding hole-in-the-wall, amazing food restaurants. This one is tops for me.
It may not be a big deal for others but getting my passport was very symbolic for me.
My first trip alone with both boys.
I’m very grateful to be married to a very supportive husband even though I wish he traveled more.
Very emotional for me.
My favorite series of posts I hope to repeat yearly.
He may not get on a plane but he’ll drive anywhere!
Very emotional for both of us.
Best gift ever? Making you feel old.
Where it REALLY all started.
We always find a way to squish in an adventure even though some of us can’t make it up the hill.
We are amazed at what we accomplished this year and can’t wait to see what the future holds.
Oh! And in case you’re wondering about our beverages of choice for the toast…
Tomato juice and ginger ale. They’re the same drinks we both ordered on our trip to Hawaii in 1991. I’m going to bet you can guess who’s who by the manicure.
