Well we’re T-6 days now until our big adventure begins. For those who didn’t know, Jes and I are both taking a 6 month leave of absence from work in order to live out our shared dream of becoming traveling nomads. It’s something we’ve talked about for years, but only finally acted on almost a year ago to the date when we were sitting at home over the holidays talking yet again about how much we wished we could travel more. That’s when we realized that all we really did was talk about this idea but had never really taken any serious steps towards making it happen. So we made a decision right there and then to go back to work in the new year and ask for our leaves. It was time.
So here we are…6 days away from hopping on a plane to South East Asia with a return date 6 months later. Still a lot of crap to get done before we leave, as witnessed by my day-by-day to-do list that keeps growing, but “create blog” is at least one that I can finally cross off the list! :)
