Rather than launching straight into the next adventure, I thought I’d better explain the jump from Tokyo (Dec 2014) to Blue Mountains (Dec 2020). A sort of, intermission, if you like.
As we traveled and posted about our 2014 adventures, I slowly fell behind realtime and by the time we arrive home for Christmas, life got busy and I fell out of the habit of writing everyday. So unfortunately the blog ends abruptly in Tokyo.
Looking back, 6 years later, we can both see how much this 6 month break has positively impacted our lives. We were filled with inspiration, energy and ambition. I realised what my life can be like without the stress of work, and decided to cut back to 4 days a week. I took up painting classes and found another dimension to life.
But slowly, I have crept back to 5 days a week and after the year that was 2020, we knew it was time to quit work and seek out another adventure. This time for a year! (Check out the 2020 Adventure page for an outline of our plans)
And so, it’s been a long time in the planning but here we are- about to embark on the next adventure!
