Many of you know that in 2017 we sold all of our possessions to head out into the world to travel full-time. But many of you may not know exactly where we have been in that time. As we near almost 5 years of this nomadic life, I felt that I better start writing down where we have been, and when.

This will benefit not only my readers but also me as my brain ages and starts to forget (and before I have to delete the pictures, which tell me the dates, off of my phone to make room for new ones!)

I think, moving forward, that this document will be a living document that I will continuously update. There will be no details about the places that we visited, but I will link to appropriate lists or articles that may give an insight into each place as I write them.

Please note that this list does NOT include the places that we traveled to before we became nomadic full-time. To see that complete list, head to the ‘countries’ tab on our website.

So here we go, in order of where we started first:

Costa Rica — (4.5 months) October 2017 — April 2018

Nicaragua —(2.5 months) April 2018 — June 2018

Guatemala — (6 months) July 2018 — January 2019 (with two short trips to Mexico during this period.)

US/British Virgin Islands — (2 weeks) January 2019 — Feb 2019

Puerto Rico — (10 days) Feb 2019

St. Kitts & Nevis — (5.5 months) Feb 2019 — August 2019 (with a 2-week trip to Anguilla during this period.)

Saint Maarten — (3 days)August 2019
