Who are we and what is turkeynose.com?
Jay Albany and Miranda Stamps. Here's a picture of us (pre-trip!).

Turkeynose.com has been our website for several years and we decided it was the perfect place to share our adventure with our friends and family. We are keeping a blog that we are updating regularly as well as posting pictures from the trip. The Recipes section is a collection of many of Miranda's favorite recipes (with a slight bias towards the ones that were also already typed up!) TN Lists is the names of specific accommodations, restaurants and activities we visited on the trip, most useful in the case that you are considering going to one of these places.

Why did we decide to throw caution to the wind and head out on this adventure?

The short answer is that it is something that we have wanted to do for many years. We have always talked about going on a big trip carefully timed with a break in our careers perfectly coinciding with our desire to leave New York and head to suburban Boston and become real adults.

Over the past year, it became clear that this magical conflagration of factors was not going to occur on its own. If we wanted to go on this trip, we were going to need to take the plunge and make it happen.

As you may know, Jay and I are not particularly experienced at throwing caution to the wind. Stability has been a much friendlier companion in our lives. We decided, however, that this was exactly the reason we needed a trip like this in our lives. We need to adventure and so we are :-)
