So after weeks of packing and cleaning, we are finally at the airport and all checked in.
We packed most of our ‘stuff’ into the Smart Box and have been ‘camping’ in the house for the past week. If nothing else, we have chucked out the rubbish, stuff that you just put in a cupboard or a drawer. Nothing of any importance or value, just stuff. We are left with these two bags!
We have said our farewells to family and friends, had lovely dinners and lunches, but it is time to get this trip underway. You are always connected in this digital world, so I am sure that the weeks and months will pass in a blur. If we find ourselves in a Italian Villa or French castle, that has many rooms, we will let you know and you can pack your things and join us.
Our first 10 days are in San Francisco, so we will make sure we do a post while we are there. Then it’s off to Las Vegas where will be living like a local, looking after Katie’s cats. We have made this connection and already feel like we have a friend for life. Katie has been amazing sending us links of what to see and do, and we can’t wait to hang out there.
By the time you read this post we will be transiting in Hawaii, hopefully having had plenty of sleep!!
May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind always be at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and the rains fall soft upon your lives,
And until we meet again, may this travel blog keep you close!
Ok, so there was a bit of artistic license there! Be in touch again soon xxx
Ps: my suitcase was only 24.5kgs!
