Just a couple of weeks to go and we’re in that strange transition phase; trying to maintain our ‘normal’ life while getting everything and everyone ready for this summer’s adventure. There’s so much to organise – finances, bikes, equipment, clothes, camping gear, children – that just occassionally I wonder if it will all be worth it.
But experience tells me that beyond the logistical nightmares of preparation, life on the road ultimately has an elegant simplicity that is hard to find in everyday living. We don’t know what this journey will hold, you never do. But in the midst of all the madness of preparation I sure am looking forward to the after (normal) life.
