I'm many things, but creative ain't one.

Help me name my blog, which is going to chronicle our adventures leading up to and during (and hopefully after) an 8-month world tour. I like witty, short titles. More details inside.

To prepare for this trip, my SO and I will be living like paupers for the next year to save money, and then selling everything and quitting our jobs just before we leave. The blog will chronicle our reasons for wanting to leave, our efforts to prepare for the trip, and pretty much anything else that comes up. The goal is to "reset" our lives, essentially. While also seeing the world before we settle down and make babies.

Help us think of a great title for such a blog.

Thanks, hive mind!!!

Naming your blog is like getting a first tattoo. If you have to ask somebody else what it should be, you're probably not ready to have one.
