When Kelsey Ochsendorf graduated from college, she gave herself a gift.

A trip to Disney World? No, much better.

She bought an airline ticket to circle the globe.

For nine months, starting late summer 2007, she traveled on a shoestring budget to four continents and 19 countries.

She traveled part of that time with Ben Tepher, also a 2003 Willmar graduate. She traveled solo most of the miles with a backpack and a digital camera.
