A wise person suggested we take some time to really frame what our 6 month trip would look like.
This was what we came up with, and it really helped us start discussing our trip beyond just the logistics. The feel of the journey and what we wanted to take away from it – all made it easier to agree what the priorities were for each of us (which is no small thing when there are two people involved who each have different interests and personalities!).
Ultimately, it’s been a great tool for focusing our research and a constant reminder when making decisions about where to go and what to do.
