We will no longer be backpacking around the world!
Instead, we have decided to “shopping cart” around the world. We have found our backpacks to be way too heavy and our bodies are far too lazy for such a task. I'm really looking forward to this new way of travel and am sure it will catch on quickly for others.
In smaller news, we actually won't be making it to Israel and Egypt as we originally intended. I'm SUPER bummed! After looking at all the logistics of it though, it makes the most sense (financially and time-wise) to continue traveling in Europe for our last few weeks before we leave for Ghana. It wasn't ideal, but it does mean we have more time to spend in Greece, Portugal and Turkey!
