Back in the USA!!!

Much to Kevin's dismay, we were let back in to the USA today without much ado. He was kinda looking forward to having to explain why he had visited Pakistan ("I was looking for Osama" was his rehearsed answer!) and to get a chance to tell some other travel stories, but he will have to wait for another time.
Anyway, we were only asked the regular questions about bringing in food or seeds or animals we answered the questions appropriately we were welcomed home with a smile and sent on our way.

So, we are in Maui, Hawaii. It is my first time here and I already see why people perceive this area of the world as a paradise...pristine coastline, crystal clear water, laid-back attitude, perfect for me! We will decompress here and then head back home to Boston on Monday, back to our real lives once again. What a shocker.

Wow, I can't believe you guys are back in the U.S. I've enjoyed reading about all your travels and look forward to visiting some of the places you guys went to. I also can't believe you were in Bonn and I didn't know about it until after you left. I live there now and it would have been cool to hang out. Keep traveling.

Welcome back! Thank you for sharing all about your travels, personally it's been very inspiring to see the world through your eyes and put some places on my "world list" that I would have never considered. Can't wait to see you both.

Glad you made it back safely to US soil, but sure will miss the daily entertainment and unique perspective on things. Surprised you didn't make it to Oz (Australia) but a year away was enough. You want to run for Mayor, you've got to deal with folks who have never traveled beyond the Broadway stop on the Red Line, good luck. Can't wait to see you again.
