In 48 hours, we get on a plane to Bangkok. And we don’t come back to US until April 12th. Holy. Cow. It’s really happening.
This is our chance to fulfill a dream, to travel without inhibition for 12 weeks, for my fiance and I to truly strike out on our own and begin our life together on this adventure. In some ways, this feels like a bigger deal than our impending wedding. This feels like we’re beginning our life together as a family of two. It’s crazy, exciting, scary, wonderful and everything in between.
I’ve never felt so grateful or blessed for an opportunity, and I intend to soak in every single magical moment. I want to indulge in the day to day like never before. I want to appreciate every second of it, take nothing for granted, and commit everything to memory. Because when I’m back to real life, sitting at a desk at a future job, taking care of the children we don’t have yet one day, and feeling the pressure of the everyday world, I want to be able to close my eyes and recall this carefree time in my life that we spent exploring the world.
I’ll be off the grid -and the blog – for at least a few days here. We don’t get to Thailand until Tuesday and I am sure I won’t find the time and the Wi Fi to blog for a day or two after that. But I do intend to chronicle our journey here on the blog for the next three months. My posts may be less frequent, but I’ll make sure I get on here. Thanks to everyone for all the advice you’ve given me for traveling, I’m sure there will be more questions as we get into it.
Here we go. This is it. This is now. Into the great unknown we go! Catch you all in the blogosphere
