On January 8, 2017, we depart Denver for a five-month round-the-world sabbatical. By then we will have quit our jobs, put our businesses on pause, given away our chickens, mulched the gardens and closed down our house. We start in Japan, move south to New Zealand, come back up to southeast Asia, head to India for a five-week train trip, then finish with a month in England. The decision to take this trip was somewhat impulsive. There is so much to be done, and we’re in the thick of it right now.
