Recently a friend of mine asked what we are doing. She saw that we sold our house and that I quit my job. For a very long time, I believe it was during high school, I have loved traveling, exploring new cultures, people groups around the world and serving on mission projects. I was browsing through a coffee shop one day and saw a book called "A Year Off". After reading about this couple's journey, I began thinking more about what I've been wanting to do for a long time.
After months of talking, dreaming, and planning, we finally made the decision to make this next year one of minimizing, experiencing, serving, traveling and sharing our journey.
For those that say we are "living the dream", I will be referring to it like Nas Daily, we are "Working the Dream." It is not a long, glorified vacation but one where we will be working part-time, serving in various projects around the world and taking our 17 year old daughter who will be accomplishing remote/world school for her senior year. Sometimes it's overwhelming and stressful, as traveling can be. Mostly it's amazing, adventurous, fulfilling and fun!
Why Java Llama- Drink coffee. Do good. ??
Since we have a love of finding great coffee, we will occasionally review different coffee places around the world. Llamas are one of our favorite creatures and we will be searching for them as well. Our 15 year old Nephew Nick created the logo for us, which was super cool!
If you have favorite places you have visited and know exceptional people we should meet on our travels, post them here or PM us!
Java LLama Trog!
