Final Update: 2 January 2003
Wes and Masami terminated their travels after 2 years 5 months and 21 days. Our itinerary had another 8 months that would have taken us through Australia, New Zealand, Tahiti, and much of South America. But even the freedom of travel has a natural psychological conclusion. As we traveled, we continued to ask ourselves: What's important in life? What do want to do? What did we appreciate before our travels? At what point will our dream of travel be satisfied? People differ. We met some people who thought 6 months was overkill. We met others who have been traveling for 5 years and have no intention of stopping. Masami and Wes both wanted to conclude our trip at the 24-month mark. Thank goodness we both felt like stopping at around the same time. Other couples we met weren't as fortunate.
