We’ve been MIA for a few weeks, and thank you to all who have written us in concern, or wondering where the hell the overdue adventure was! It’s people like you that have pushed us to continue to do what we do.
That said, we’ll be a bit more off the radar over the next few months, as we have both embarked on our newest, and grandest adventures yet.
I’m currently writing to you all from Russia. I was born with an insatiable appetite for adventure, and partly do to my upbringing in Colorado, a constant yearning to climb mountains. It’s the reason I’m sitting on the hard floor of Moscow’s International Airport, typing to all of you. I’m here to climb Europe’s highest peak, Mt Elbrus. Along the way I’m raising funds for an orphanage I’ll be volunteering at this coming summer in Mongolia.
Our time in Southeast Asia has officially come to an end, and although we won’t be able to keep up with videos for some time, in no way are the adventures stopping. In reality, they’ve escalated, making a video a week an impossible feat to attempt.
Kelsey would have loved to be by my side, but I’ll have to wait a couple months till summer’s over to reunite with the love of my life. She was offered an incredible position in the broadcasting field, a career she is fiercely passionate about, and I will meet her in the States after my own adventure on the other side of the world.
52-weeks SE Asia may have come to an end, or at least a hiatus, but 52-weeks is FAR from done. We will continue to adventure every corner of the globe together, and allow our passions and skills to take us wherever the wind blows.
For now, I hope you all enjoy the photos from my journey to Mt Elbrus thus far. I’ve been outrageously lucky, managing to fall into a mini-vacation in Sri Lanka. What was supposed to be a miserable night spent sleeping in the airport turned into a free hotel voucher at a beautiful property on the beach. I walked the beach, met some hilarious locals, and played soccer with a group of local boys. From there, I flew to Dubai, then finally to Moscow; which is where I am currently reporting from.
Hopefully we have more from you soon, but remember, this isn’t the end; it’s the beginning of yet another grand adventure… Signing out for now.
