The Great Wide Anywhere? Well, that’s a strange name. Where did it come from? And who are you people? “The Great Wide Anywhere” is a take on “The great wide somewhere” Belle sings about in “Beauty and the Beast”. She has a good life in a small town but craves a little more. That’s us. We are Amanda and Craig and we are about to take our family on a 6-9 month tour of Europe. There are no guaranties in life and you gotta git while the gittin’s good. We have always wanted to travel and figured doing it while we’re young and in good health is the way to go. We love adventure and challenges and are excited to learn about the world and ourselves and each other. Please follow along with us and feel free to offer any advice. We are learning as we go and welcome your words of wisdom as we embark on our journey to the great wide anywhere.
