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.

Holy crap.

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.

That’s a Passport in My Hands

It may not be a big deal for others but getting my passport was very symbolic for me.

A Mile at Multnomah

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.
