But i think this was just chapter one!!
Our last day today. An odd feeling, glad to be heading back to our family and friends, sad that our adventure is nearly over.
What a blast its been!! For two old buggers we did well, we feel pretty proud of ourselves! We saw so much have the best memories..and if they are sketchy..Ian took over 1100 photos...so prepare yourself kids, Dad is going to drive you insane with his photo nights!
I have savoured every single moment!
So much has surprised me. Not once did we encounter any personal aggression, never did we feel unsafe (cept maybe when the guards stormed the train). Never were we made feel uncomfortable, or embarrassed by our lack of local knowledge or language issues. Everyone we encountered, from people in the street, hotel employees, hospitality staff, train employees, everyone.. has been genuinely friendly, helpful and keen for us to enjoy their home.
The last few weeks have really got me wanting to see more, and I am determined to start planning another trip..today we talked about Sweden...sounds fun.
We have so many people to thank for their help in getting us here, in particular Debbie, Lauren, and Ryan. Thanks for taking care of the babies!! You will never know how appreciated it was. Thanks for getting Harrison through a bit of drama, I did stress, but knew that he was with those that love him as much as me, and the photo of him smiling with his arm in a cast, got me over the stress! I have one hell of a sister, and some pretty cool kids!! I am hanging out for some hugs!! to my lovely workmates, thanks for letting me get up and go, I know it increased your workload, and i love you for it! Cant wait to have a latte with my girls!
See you soon!!
