An Experiential Life Pt. 2

See the World! Watercolor and Micron Pens If you didn’t catch part one to this post, you can check it out here: https://echomariejohnson.wordpress.com/2014/01/26/an-experiential-life-pt-1/ This seems like a fitting way to sign off before 2 weeks of travel. Soon we’ll be on course for Kenya, via Zurich (Alps! Yay!). I’m super excited. It’ll be our first time…

An Experiential Life Pt.1

(This will be a 2 part post, since I didn’t have time to illustrate today.) When people hear what kind of life Nathan and I live, we typically get one of two responses: utter confusion (“Wait, so…what do you do? Where are you from?…”) or, more commonly, good-natured envy (“OMG, I want to travel so badly!…

Sometimes this is what I feel like…
