Five, Four, Three, Two

Countdown to departure. We fly to Peru on April 9th. Our month in the states has been busy and rewarding – and we sure needed the extra time to finish preparing to be out of the country for nine months. Our travel to Maryland, Washington DC, New York and Florida has given us good practice at re-packing, more purging, and strategizing transportation. We have driven, taken the metro and the subway, ridden the Greyhound bus and the Bolt bus. And we have had our first flight of this year – from DC to Miami. Though we have plenty of past travel experiences, there’s always a new scenario. That’s what makes adventure. Of most value to our stateside travel, has been getting in the routine of “no routine.” We will surely gain appreciation for gypsies, herders, nomads and vagabonds. And while we do have a need to be settled, we will have to be content with being together. This year, family is our “settlement.”

I have posted a few galleries of our trip so far.
