Travel Theme: Secret Places

20 Jun

Every time we feel sad, lost, or a bit scared of the ‘unknown’, I tend to go find ‘shelter’ and comfort among some of our dear pictures, our memories from previous postings, and this brings me back to a more ‘stable’ self… Anyway, this week’s been bittersweet… Last days of school for our children, a few days left in country… so much to do, people we’d like to see/visit again… so little time… Moving is not easy, and this week, a little ‘less easy than usual’… This blogpost represents the transition that’s waiting for us – my appreciation to Where’s my backpack? for the inspiration! 😮

Our family is also getting ready for our new assignment: 2012 marks the move to our first Spanish speaking post: La Paz, Bolivia. Our household will formally have 3 languages… we’ll be writing our stories and tales in different ways now… Hope it’s appreciated… 😮

    Beautiful photos and I’m sure you have a lot of wonderful memories to bring with you on your next adventure. Good luck with the move, I’m looking forward to your tales from La Paz. xxx

      Thank you very much, Ailsa! We’re almost there… physically, emotionally… it’s a great and challenging journey… La Paz tales & stories will begin to be told by August… 😮 there’ll be a break in-between, to recharge batteries and get back to our true selves… we all need it, right? Brazil has given wonderful heart pictures, stories, and I’m sure, memories… We’re leaving Brazil with our new addition to the family (now we’re 5!), a 1 1/2 yr old daughter, and, whenever we feel a bit blue about this whole transition/departure, we just look back at her, her pictures, remembering the sweet moments we’re having as a family… and all is well! 😮
