One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Traveled around Paris and Rome without a phone or contact with the outside world (unintentionally), Zig zagged across the US multiple times hiking and camping in most of our amazing national parks, lived and worked in Dublin for a bit, and, of course, spent 4 years in Vancouver which I must say I would trade every other thing I've done on this list for in an instant.
