The Big Dream
Ever since I was a young adult and had begun to think of having children I have wanted to raise them in different countries so they could experience the world, different cultures, etc. With Stevie being old enough to appreciate some of these things but young enough to still be flexible, the iron is hot. Those of you who know me know I don’t believe on sitting on my dreams. After working in intensive care, trauma, and now hospice for several years, my family motto has become: Vivez sans regrets! (Live without regrets!) So I have decided to move forward with this dream and make it a reality.
We had already planned a trip to east Africa in fall of next year, after the rainy season ends. My plan is evolving still, but currently the plan is we will go to Kenya, Tanzania, Madagascar, and Egypt. From Egypt will fly to Thailand and begin the next adventure in the city of Chiang Mai. The idea is to stay at least a year and then consider moving to another country or staying put longer. We will take things as they come.
While the logical part of my mind is nervous, I see things coming together, and it feels so completely right. I just can’t ignore that.
Like I said, the plan is still evolving. I hope you’ll join us for the Journey through this blog.
