"One of the greatest things in human life is the ability to make plans. Even if they never come true - the joy of anticipation is irrevocably yours. That way one can live many more than just one life."

Maria Trapp-The Story of the Trapp Family Singers - Ch. 12 p. 4

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”

Leaving, on a jet plane

Well, we’ve made it through customs and all the security checkpoints and are waiting to board our flight to America. I guess it’s really over.

I’m a little bit sad because it’s all done, but I’m also very excited to get home to the kids and my babies. I thought it would be super depressing to be done with our big adventure, but it feels like we did SO much and had so many new and wonderful experiences that are cup is truly full and it’s okay that it’s time to be done.

We were talking last night, after our final “stop” at the Cliffs of Moher, about how the first few days of our trip were such a whirl that I was afraid the whole trip was going to just fly by and by the end it would be a shock that it was already over. We both agreed, though, that it does feel like we’ve been traveling for quite awhile. It feels like we did a lot and it doesn’t feel like just a blur. It’s been a full, wonderful, unforgettable 18 days and we are ready to go home.

See you all tomorrow!
