We have started the countdown! Well, we've actually been counting down for 2 years now, but the set off date is finally in sight. The 31st March 2018 has been drilled into our minds now for so long, its crazy to be just round the corner now. Safe to say excitement levels are through the roof at the moment, and I'd be lying if said nervous haven't started to creep in.
I wonder why that is? We're finally setting off on the trip of a lifetime, that we've been dreaming of for so long and we're nervous. I guess its whole thing, we're quitting our jobs, leaving our little house and packing everything we own onto our bikes. There's something liberating yet terrifying about only have a bike to your name.
There are a lot of things to consider when planning something like this and questions to ask such as, what if I cant find another job when I get back, what if we run out of money, will the bikes be able to do these routes..will I?! Thing is, there's always risk involved when you test yourself and shake things up a bit. We're ready for this trip though, its the perfect time in lives and we don't really have any responsibilities in terms of kids or mortgage, so there's no reason not to go.
In Janurary 2018 we gave our notices into work and starting hitting the organisation hard!..
