One year ago today my husband and I began to fulfill one of the dreams long-held close to our hearts.
On the morning of Saturday, October 1, 2011, we left Minnesota, taking a route that would lead us from the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport to Denver, San Francisco, and Vancouver. We left Canada shortly before midnight and landed in Sydney, Australia on Monday morning. Because we crossed the International Date Line en route, Sunday did not exist for us last year.
It was a very long flight. The next time I go to the other side of the world (I sincerely hope there is a next time!) I think I will plan an overnight (or longer) stopover in Hawaii.
I hope you will check back here occasionally in the next few weeks. I’ll be sharing photos and memories here, as they happened a year ago.
