We have 5 tickets.
We are content, comfortable, and secure in our home. Yet we have 5 tickets.
When an AirAisa sale appeared on the March long weekend, we jumped in at the deep end and booked one way tickets to Sri Lanka for January 2019. In less than 7 months we will be living abroad with our 3 children under 5. Holy Hell, we are just a little bit excited. As Adam would say: “I think I just did a little wee.”
Life doesn’t get much more chaotic than the juggle of 3 kids under 5, so why not move the chaos.
We love our home, our jobs, our family and community. We are a family of 5. We are happy. Yet we have 5 tickets. Yet. Yet. Yet.
Yet… we are planning to detour from this, for one year, for a family gap year. People, friends, family, colleagues think we are crazy. brave. careless perhaps?
We want to instill a passion for travel, adventure and curiosity in our 3 young daughters. We want to see the world through their eyes. We want to slow down.
And then there’s us. Us. Well for us we have 5 tickets. That’s it. We figure life doesn’t get much more chaotic than the juggle of 3 kids under 5; so why not move the chaos. Let’s pack our bags, remove the excess of possessions and exchange it for MEMORIES, TIME and EXPERIENCES.
We want to instill a passion for travel, adventure and curiosity in our 3 young daughters. We want to see the world through their eyes. We want to slow down, to disrupt the status quo of the linear expectations of life – because, despite our rules, organisation, planning and attempts, life is not linear.
We have been discussing and planning this adventure together for over two years.
So, our flights are booked. Now what do we do?
