We Are Off!

We have finally left on our trip, this is something I have dreamed about for over 30 years and can now finally say its a reality, so all dreamers please persevere, you may well fulfill your dream as we have. I know we have only been out a week now, but we have had heaps of fun, made some mistakes and are really enjoying the lifestyle. You can follow our trip on our blog.

Great to learn you doing it!

I've also boarded for an extended stay with no return date even being considered... hope to be out a couple of years or maybe more...

Thank you everyone once again for your messages of encouragement. We have been out over a month now, and we love it We always seem to be laughing or smiling. Looks like we will rent out our house and continue the dream.
