off we go…

We’ve been planning and saving and working on this summer’s vacation for years.  For many years, we’ve been saving a little here and there for ‘a trip’.  We then had the chance to go to India.  And that was a trip and an amazing adventure we will never forget and feel so lucky to have lived together as a family.

Since then we changed the way we started saving for the trip. We started a different account that it had all those saved pennies, so we could see the account grow, and know when we had enough for the trip.  Otherwise, as it had happened until then, the saved money for the trip was mixed with our savings account, and very hard to take it out for something non-urgent, for something fun once there.

But now we had enough for the trip.

We saved, sold our handmade goods in the winter fairs for few years now, cleaned our home and toys and books in an annual garage sale, saved money in any way we could, so we could do this trip.  We were all ready for another adventure.  We are ready for a trip.

It is a very special trip.  We came to England to see friends we had met in India and we had in our home last year.

And oh my… what an adventure we’ve begun.  I will share here as I can.  I started this blog 3 years ago because of our trip to Chile and then to India.  Again this time, I don’t want us to forget our days in this new adventure.  An amazing one so far.

    • Hi Tracey. Thanks! Yes, we are having lots of fun… hard to find time to record everything in words… I’m hoping pictures will remind us of our thoughts and feelings as we discover these beautiful lands.
      Will catch up with your days when our days settle down a little. Thanks for coming to visit, and hope you are enjoying your summer.
