It all started with an April Fools Day joke, claiming we were set to spend a year in Japan on the JET program.  After we had our laughs, we thought – why not?

Now, we’re saving our pennies, and shortly, we will embark on a year-long journey around the world.  Join us as we prepare, read about our smaller adventures thus far, and travel with us to the far reaches of the planet.

We are Aaron and Brianna, and we’re glad to have you with us!  Be sure to follow our blog for our latest adventures, and sign up for our monthly newsletter for sneak peeks on upcoming journeys and exclusive travel tips!

We’ve always envied those visiting exotic locations around the globe, but why should we sit back and watch others do it?  It’s time to prove this big world is smaller than you think!
