The year would not be complete without some goals. We know that these activities, and the trip in general, will give us a new perspective. Maybe all the clear, mountain morning hikes will also give us a little inspiration and direction since neither of us has the slightest idea of what to do next. Open a surf shop in Thailand? Start our own company? Return to the grind in NYC? It’s all WIDE OPEN. One thing we know for sure: this year is going to fly by and we plan to make the most of it.
