It was almost a year ago that we decided to quit our jobs and hit the road. There was something missing in our lives. We knew that if we continued killing ourselves working 60 hours a week eventually we were going to crack. This was not the life we wanted for ourselves so we decided to do something about it.
The hardest part was leaving our friends and family. The second hardest part, at least for me, was leaving the city I grew up in. I love Chicago. Like most cities it has its problems but it is also an amazing place. The people are friendly, the food is outstanding and the culture is second to none. I consider myself lucky to call it home. No matter where in the world we end up living, ill always call myself a Chicagoan.
