Looking back over the highlights of 2015, we are just in awe that we were able to take so many trips this past year while still working full time jobs—and we’re not even done yet! We are currently camping in the Wadi Rum desert in Jordan and won’t be home until well into January. We’re counting our blessings as we prepare for 2016 and begin planning even more adventures. Thank you all for following along! Here are our favorite travel moments of the year:
