We love meeting new people! Fellow travelers, diplomats, just plain folks, all bring a level of enjoyment to this adventure that we would not get just looking at tourist attractions. From the beginning of this journey back in October, to where we are now, meeting new folks and sharing experiences had been absolutely amazing. Followers of our blog are probably well aware of this from the number of postings we have made about all of the wonderful people we have met along the way.
