Despite months of preparation for our "around the world" trip, we still found ourselves leaving cloudy and rainy Portland in a frantic pace. We had our customary last minute all-nighter to get everything ready. We were still packing when Mark graciously showed up at 3:45 AM to take us to the airport.

3am pre-departure conversation:

"Hey Lenk, are you ready?"

"I don't know Geoff, where are we going again?"

"Back to here, via 19 stops along the way..."

Emerson had a chance to live vicariously over the two month sojourn. Here is the map he used to follow Dad and Lenka's trip. 

Next destination, our first stop: Minneapolis
