Hello readers – at the moment probably only Lori! 🙂
Saturday 18th May and we are deep into the planning of our ‘once in a lifetime’ adventure – 14 weeks travelling mostly in Spain.
So far we have decided where we will be based – Finca Fenix in Alora, Andalusia for 8 weeks. We’ve planned some side trips – 10 days in Greek Islands, 9 day walking tour in Andalusia, 11 days in Morocco and long weekends in England, Ireland and Istanbul.
This will be an opportunity to get away from normal everyday and take time to look inside, ponder the future now that the children aren’t the priority, get to know ourselves differently – what else would we like to do, visit other parts of personalities that haven’t been explored because we’ve been totally caught up in being working parents for 22 years.
We want to sing, dance, love, cook, move. explore, visit long lost relatives and rediscover friends, encounter other cultures and make new friends – get to know each other better and have fun. Finding a way to help in the local community would be a good challenge also, as we have spent our whole lives working and focusing on our family and not looking outside of ourselves.
Outside our comfort zone – personal growth will be valuable.
Bye for now! Lots of love ….
It is really nice to hear you dream, Trish! I will enjoy reading your blog, for certain. You write it in a voice I know and love! Bon voyage! Vaya con Dios!
I also like your blog and your idea to escape to Spain and surrounds for 14 months. You are inspirational and have encouraged me not to give up on my dream to do something similar. I’m looking forward to ‘following’ you around Spain. Ole, ole, ole. don’t even know what that really means but it sounds Spanish to me. Sally.
Thanks Sally! You keep dreaming about that birthday in France! Bring it on! xx
The blog has started off really well, Trish. I am looking forward to reading more about your adventures!
Thanks Leticia! I’m looking forward to beginning the adventure! xx
I like your blog, are you giving up your jobs to do the trip. I know it was quite a while since I was in Spain, but compared to other countries your money stretched quite far and the people were very friendly. Sandra
No, we are just taking a long break.
Eric is in his own business – so we’ve just planned it around his busy times.
I started at CSBP in January – but at the interview told them I was going to be away for 3 and a half months and it was okay. x
