Follow teens’ journey around the world

Recent high school graduates Sasha Hill and Sierra Clark invite the Davis community to follow along on their adventures as they spend the next year traveling the world.

Hill, who graduated from Davis High School in June, and Clark, a Da Vinci Charter Academy graduate, left Saturday for their first stop on a trip around the world: Cruz Verde, Peru. Over the next year, they will spend time living and volunteering in eight countries on four continents. Throughout the trip, they will be posting photos and videos and blogging at http://offthebeatenboulevard.com.

The trip has been in the works since the pair conceived the idea as eighth-graders. During the subsequent four years, they worked and saved nonstop to make it happen, with each of them holding down as many as four summer jobs at a time. They raised nearly $19,000 in the process.

After six weeks in Peru, Hill and Clark will head to Europe, where they will spend time in France and Spain; Africa for a stint in Morocco; then to Israel, Greece, Thailand and Vietnam, returning home to Davis in late May.

Those wishing to travel vicariously with them can sign up on their website for email updates or follow their adventures on Facebook at Sierra and Sasha’s Big Adventure.
