Starting the New Year With a Bang!

IMG_4527 - Version 3

Each year 45% of Americans, or 142,000,000 people make New Year’s resolutions, according to statisticbrain.com. Obviously, people feel strongly about resolutions … making them that is. Keeping them, well that’s another story.

So as the number of posts inches up over 300 on the Gallivance Blog, we thought a resolution for a bit more organization would be a good thing. And January 1 of the New Year seemed the perfect time to start. So we’ve created a guide to get you started. Check it out below and let us know what you think.

Thanks and Happy New Year!

GALLIVANCE: 
Where travel, curiosity, and a love of change intersect 
to create our unique world view.

Welcome! We’re so glad you’re here.

We started Gallivance in 2011 as a travel journal for our second Round-the-World trip. And after many months … and miles, the scope and content of Gallivance has expanded.

We’ve traveled and lived abroad for over 35 years, and have constantly sought change in our lives, both professional and personal. Blogging has shown us that we enjoy sharing our travel and life experiences with an international audience and being part of a bigger community.

More than 300 posts is a lot to digest, but if you want a taste of who we are, and what Gallivance has to offer, start right here.

Just pick your favorite topic, and dive in! And if you like what you see, then Follow Gallivance and we’ll let you know what we’re up to.
