A strange new(ish) land

On May 30th, we will embark on what could very well be the craziest adventure we have had yet.

We will be going to a place where everything is larger than life, accents can be impossible to understand even if you are a native speaker, and the weather is as unpredictable as the stars at night are big and bright.

Yes, you read that right, The Sebestas are returning to Texas!


One of the Natives of this strange land

After 4.5 months of traveling abroad, we have decided that we are ready to return to the great US of A. We will be returning home first to Texas and then, we hope to spend some time camping and catching up with family and friends before moving on to the next steps in our lives (which admittedly are still being defined at this point).

While it will be sad to leave the adventure of travel behind us for a while, there are many things we are excited about back home. Being able to talk to our friends and family without worrying about the spotty internet connections, a washer (and dryer!) and being able to understand every word of a conversation, not just the general idea, are all things we’ve missed and are looking forward to when we get home.

It has been an incredible journey and we’re still digesting all the implications for our life, but this has been the experience of a lifetime and we can’t thank you enough for being a part of it. To all of you who have read my oftentimes too long posts, I thank you for sticking with us! I appreciate all of you who have taken the time to comment on posts or send us emails-it was wonderful to keep in touch with you! And, thank you for all the prayers-We know many times we had some guardian angels keeping us safe!

We will still be keeping up with our blog as the adventures in our life are just beginning and we hope you’ll continue on with us too!

    You’re going to make me cry! (That is significantly easier now, tho, with the pregnancy and all…) Can’t wait to see you guys! And also so excited for all the adventures you’ve had that are now a part of you. You’re no longer going to be those crazy gringos! Just the crazy Sebestas! Love you!

    Happy to have you coming back to where we can call you and check up on you! I’ m happy you had this opportunity and I can’t wait to hear stories face to face. Come to Denver ASAP. Love and hugs until I can give them in person. Kathy
