The tension and excitement are building and we have only two weeks left before we take off for six months. Don’s been spending his days filling out forms for our visas and travel arrangements. Tahiti-is checked off.  Japan is still a bit off a void. Laos and Thaliand have generally been sketched in, India-researching, and Christmas is booked in France.

Thinking about packing is a daughnting affair. I pride myself on my ability to pack, but this trip will be my biggest challenge yet. The kids are easy, but will I really be spending the next three months in flats? Its a work in progress.
