Hi, we are Dave & LeeAnne
This is the story of the trip we took around the world in 2007. Here we hope to entertain, inform and just maybe you can benefit from our good (and sometimes bad) judgement.

We pack, we get shots, we get visa's, we re-pack.

China May - July 2007

Post-Trip Reflections Autumn 2007
Wow, that went fast. We take a minute to reflect on how we spent the year.
