We are down to the final few days now and all that can be done has been done. Our bags are ready (a backpack and small suitcase each!), we have airline and train tickets bought, London Passes in hand, and our hotels and apartments are booked through until the end of March 2017. The house is empty, our car has been sold, the seemingly endless paperwork is looked after, and many goodbyes have been said. We are more than ready to begin….
Looking back at our time in Costa Rica we can clearly see now that it was only a trial run. It was a most enjoyable three months in many ways, however it was not the wholehearted change we are embarking on now. We still had a house and car to come back to and it was easy to tell everyone we would see them in three months – it didn’t seem real.
As our departure date nears (Sept 4th) and our anticipation builds one of our major conversations has centered around the question of “what is our purpose for doing this?” In the end we decided that it doesn’t matter all that much. We know we need to do this, we know we want to explore and we know we want to open ourselves to new ideas and experiences, so for the time being that is enough. We are thrilled to have this opportunity and we recognize what a wonderful blessing it is! Where we will be and how we will feel about it all a few years from now – we have no idea – and that is totally fine.
We have also been busy streamlining our site to make it easier to navigate and we have created a Welcome page introducing what features are available and how they work. The content pages now use a drop down menu to access information specific to a destination. We hope that our changes provide a faster and easier way to sort through all our information. As always, we would love to hear from you and welcome any comments below.
Next stop – London for two weeks of sightseeing!
