As I’m packing and getting ready to start Uni next Monday, it got me thinking how fast the past year has gone by. I remember it just like yesterday that Joren and I were getting ready to set off on our world trip.
It’s been a little under a year since we jumped on a plane to the other side of the world. I thought how much fun it would actually be, to put our GAP year into numbers – from the number of hours spent on a plane to the number of sunglasses Joren bought in Bangkok!
We’re grateful and blessed for this past year and are so glad we had the chance to do a gap year.
