[RECAP] 15 Months of Traveling the World — Country Highlights

Fifteen months after we left on our year-long trip around the world, we’re finally back — back in the US, back to full-time jobs and back to US phone numbers. We’ve returned with memories of medinas in Morocco and alleyways in Australia. We can now say thank you in almost 40 languages. We put condensed milk in our coffee and avocado on our toast. We are back, but we are not the same.

Our complete trip recap is a post that I never looked forward to writing. The thought of being back in the US writing about Vietnam instead of being in Vietnam really stressed me out. There are still mornings when I wake up wondering where I am and fight tears for a moment when I realize that it’s Orlando. But the fact that I have this adventure to look back on is something that I will never, ever take for granted. That made me realize that this post is actually the best post ever.

So I poured my heart into, and here it us. This is our journey – our highlight reel. It’s the memories and the moments we want to remember when we look back on one of the best years of our lives. And I’m so excited to share that!

There’s a lot I could say about this trip, but I decided to say it with photos. I’ve combed through every single photo we took over the past 15 months and compiled the best of them. Some categories have a photo from every country, but not all of them. If you’ve ever wondered how our trip went, I invite you to flip through these photos and see for yourself.

Thanks for joining us on our adventure! We hope you’ll continue to follow us here on Lattes & Runways and across our social platforms. We will continue to share guides on all the places we’ve been and all the places we still plan to visit. Even though we’re not traveling full-time at the moment, we still have lots of adventures left on our horizon. You can also follow our Disney adventures over on our sister blog, Mouse Hacking.

Great photos! What a trip for both of you! I was interested to see your section on coffee. As a Melburnian, I suppose I am biased, but having travelled around much of the world, I believe that Melbourne coffee is the best in the world. There are many places, particularly in Europe, where I would rather live, but nowhere have I encountered coffee as good as in Melbourne.

PS - I am a fan of Delirium Tremens too. The beers in Belgium are the best in the world!

Hi Nicholas! I'm not surprised to hear that! We adored the coffee scene in Melbourne! So many great cafes and all with such great food, too. Your country was extremely welcoming and we loved our time there. There actually wasn't anything we didn't love about Melbourne, but the coffee was definitely one of our favorite aspects. Also the State Victoria Library! That place has a special place in our hearts.
