And now begins the epic journey blog! Due to time-off-from-jobs limitations, we decided to do a combination of biking and walking. We also brought a Safety Van, driven by our friend Owen, a painting major at MCAD, which we wound up very much needing at the end.
I feel it's appropriate to start off with this photo. This is a photo of us taking pictures in Lake Geneva, taken by Owen.
