Letting go

Day 3 in Chiang Mai has consisted of sitting around, eating, napping and more sitting around. On our first day we saw a bunch of kids playing on the road and I told the boys to go say hi. “We are too shy”. So I left it at that.       The next day […]

Money: Things don’t always go to plan

Money, money, money. Don’t they say it’s what makes the world go round? For us it’s what’s funding our trip! Some people ask “So where will you be working?” Well we aren’t. We are trying our best to travel for 1 year on our savings. Once that money runs out its time to get our […]

Kuala Lumpur. How are we really going?

I mentioned in a FB post about how the last four days hasn’t been all “happy happy joy joy.” What do I mean by that? Before we left Australia, Gerhard and I would sit around and talk about what it would be like. “It will be so much fun” “the kids will learn so much” […]
