Well, 153 technically…but who’s counting?
153 days until what? I’m sure you’re asking yourself, if you’ve found yourself on my blog. I have a trip planned with my little girl, E, in June of this year. She is 12 years old, and for us, this will be our first grand adventure without anyone else.
I’m starting this blog for several reasons. One is as a means of collecting ideas and resources to make the trip as successful as possible for us. Another reason is to help us pack effectively for the journey. More importantly though, the reasons I’m starting the blog is to memorialize the trip for my daughter to look back on when she is older and to help encourage any of you considering a similar adventure to go for it.
I will start out by saying that this trip is in no way a ‘spontaneous’ trip, and it’s straining my budget quite a bit to be quite honest…but it’s something I really want to do and am willing to sacrifice to make happen.
If I can inspire just one person to try doing something new or go someplace they’ve always dreamed of…in the end, I will be glad to have shared this adventure.
I am not a blogger to be quite honest, but most motivational speakers will tell you that you don’t have to be good to start…but you do have to start if you ever hope to be good at something.
So…this is me…starting.
