Wow, I can't believe how fast time shoots by!!
Heaps has been happening lately, and I just don't have enough hours in the day to document it all fully at this point :(
We've found a renter for the house, and they take possession of our house on the 1st October. So from the 1st October, we will be officially homeless :) but we are going to live with our parents for a couple of weeks whilst I finish up work
I will resign from work in the next few days, which puts our departure date around the 10-13th October 2011! Not long at all!
We've decided we will head from Sydney to Canberra initially, and get some good distance away from Sydney before we start to slow down the pace a little.
We've been accepted into the Sydney Distance Education Primary School (phew - if we'd been declined, I 'm not exactly sure what we would have done!).
We've started packing up all our belongings we want to keep, Ebaying those belongings that we don't need anymore, and preparing for a Massive Garage sale!
We've been crossing heaps of things off our list of 50+ things that we still have to do before we move out.
All in all, life has been hectic!! But I can now see a big light at the end of the tunnel (or is that just a freight train!!!)
Thankfully, the kids have still had very high spirits about our big adventure, and this has been very helpful.
I am looking forward to coming back to these posts and fleshing out a bit more of the detail, but at the moment, I just can't afford the time - we are all so time poor these days - I guess it's all just about the choices we make about how we use our time...
So what is www.bigaussieroadtrip.com all about? Well... hopefully, by the time we are done, it will be a comprehensive journal about a family of 5 who have travelled around Australia to see the sights and also do some volunteer work around the country! In Mid 2010 we started thinking about what it would take to fulfil a life-long dream... We wanted to bundle up our 3 kids, pack-up the house, jump in the car and hit the road - probably for about 12 months. It sounds so simple ... At the start of January 2013, after almost 15 months on the road; we finally completed Our Big Aussie Road Trip. We hope that you enjoyed following our adventures, trials and tribulations as much as we enjoyed having them!
