Preparing the Blog, and eagerly anticipating - - -

A journal entry from: South-East Asia, 2007

Well, at this stage, we're eagerly preparing, anticipating, agonizing, wondering!!!  We have much to do to prepare our home for the Canadian winter before leaving on our long-awaited SE Asia adventure.  We have our job-replacements arranged, return flights booked, travel and medical insurance, travel-shots, some traveller's cheques and foreign currency, China visas, VietNam visas applied for, travel guitar, packs and gear coming together - - - loose ends!??!? 

We're finishing getting in our winter fire-wood for when we return, finishing and winterizing a new pumphouse with water-filtration, cleaning and repairing chimneys, needing to drain and winterize hot-tubs at Ryan's and our house, get snow-tires on the vehicles -on and on - - . 

But the adventure awaits.  Where will we go first?  How will we get there?  What wonderful people will we meet and what will we share with them?  And how will we hold up?

Hoping we can keep you posted as we proceed,

Watch for new entries -we can't wait - - - -

It's with such emotion that I read your first entry... this was Greg and I exactly a year ago. Sigh...you are off on such a wonderful adventure. You will easily learn to expect the unexpected and accept all that unfolds.
