6 months ago, I posted a rough plan of the adventure ahead.
When you are living on the road, a great deal can change in one week that can alter your itinerary. Some places we decided to drop because they were logistical nightmares and we added new stops to suit our current needs or wants.
As we just passed the 6 month mark, I am starting to feel that things have shifted. My mindset is already thinking about school and preschool and a rental property back in Sydney. Living in the USA is very similar to Australia and it feels a little less exciting than exotic Europe. I have been blessed in the past to have visited quite a bit of the USA but this time it feels very different. New York feels more familiar. Washington was such a lovely surprise. Boston was freezing and industrial. The Hamptons was heavenly and picture perfect.
In 2.5 weeks, we fly to Denver to spend the winter season in the mountains. I am so excited about this, it has been my dream ever since I began watching Warren Miller movies in my teenage years. In February, our plans are still pretty loose which excites me. This is when I come into my element and start to hash ideas and possible destinations. I love all the planning of it.
