This is going to be one of those day-by-day blogs, started early as I felt 100% positive that this jaunt would be worth documenting - and if not, well, just scroll quickly. As you know from previous posts, we've had this genius Barlow Break planned for months - leaving Friday, February 19th and returning two … Continue reading It’s not the journey…
