Count down is on
When we take a one week vacation, I find everyday is vivid and planned. There may not be much time for relaxing, and it certainly passes fast, but we are motivated to make the most of it. Usually about 1-2 days before leaving we start to watch the hours before having to return (to whatever that return might be!).
Well this scales up. When we have taken 5 week vacations it is the last week where the thoughts of home and what is coming start to be more present.
And with a 9 month trip (at this point it is no longer really vacation) the count down started with 2 months still to go. It does make sense, since there are things to wrap up here, our house to move out of, friends to say goodbye to and a long road trip home to plan. More about all that still to come soon I imagine! We are leaving our house here in just a couple of weeks.
Fortunately, the last couple of weeks our friends Napik and Jo have been visiting with their 3 kids and there is no better distraction from our upcoming departure than a full house! We have been having a great time profiting from the beach, the pool and time with good friends. It has been great to rediscover our home, town, and surrounding area through their eyes.
