Like father like son?? Who knows. But, Patrick has certainly picked up some of our desire to see the world! Patrick is "on sabbatical" right now, and thought that this might be his last chance for a long time to jump on a flight to South America and explore. We were certainly in no position to tell him otherwise. He's been gone now for three months and has a few more places to see before he is home.
If you'd like to check out some of his adventure take a look at his blog.
