that time again

DSC04928 Finally on Copacabana Beach!

Just 3 more nights in Brazil and I’m more than happy to be on our way.  Not that I haven’t enjoyed Brazil.  I have.  I’ve loved, loved, loved seeing our friends here and I’ve really enjoyed the culture and cuisine of this friendly country. I think more than anything I’m just really excited for what lies ahead. 

For those of you who don’t know, this is our last year of travel.  It’s time for Jules to move forward in her career, time for me to get back to mine and time for us to sleep in the same bed for more than 5 nights in a row…with pillows I actually like.

We’ve got just 2 more rounds this year (maybe just 1 if the right job comes along) and although this year has been a little trying with departmental changes, most of our closest friends rolling off,  far too much work, stress and long hours for The Wife, bad attitudes (ours included), repeated locations and just general travel fatigue- we’re determined to live it up the last 4 months.

Which should be fairly easy to do…

First of all we’re going back to Europe.  No, actually, that should be second.  First- we get to see friends, lots of friends!!  Frenchie this weekend, our fave Irish lass next week, catching up with other team members in Dublin, Oktoberfest with our German friend, living in London with a dear old friend and closing out the round with 2 of our closest friends coming to Europe to visit us!! 

We’re ridiculously excited to see everyone.  When you live your life on the road there is nothing like catching up with people you love and who love you. 

Secondly, we’re going back to Europe!  Enough said.

Then, if the fates (read: managers) allow, we’ll close out our year and this whole insane adventure in Asia. 

4 months and we’ll be back to the real world.  We couldn’t be happier or more scared.
